Those grey faces, sunken eyes and blank stares you’ve seen in Petersburg lately, it’s not just the rainy summer – it may be a few of the actors and extras in a locally filmed zombie movie called “Dead End Job.” It’s a short film in production this summer. One scene last week involved a couple dozen residents who responded to the call and donned makeup to appear in a scene at Hammer and Wikan grocery store. Joe Viechnicki spoke with director and producer Heather Canik, owner of Sea Monster Entertainment in Petersburg, and actor Nick Johnston about the filming.

Canik plans to post the short film once it’s completed on YouTube and hopes to have a screening at Northern Nights Theater.
