Product Description

Emily Hagins is filming her first feature film. She wrote the screenplay, and will be directing it herself. The zombies shuffle, and there's plenty of blood. The big difference is that Emily is twelve. This funny, tender documentary follows Emily and her family on her first feature film. This film is a fascinating look at a growing world of young movie makers, and the bloodiest mother/daughter movie you've ever seen! Also features Emily's feature film ""Pathogen"" in its entirety. A must for any family with a budding filmmaker!

Sure, there are plenty of "making of" featurettes, some better than others.
Aaron S. Berman
There's no deathless cinema experience here, but this is a solid, if exceptionally low-budget, first feature from a director who's got quite a future in front of her.
Robert Beveridge
"Zombie Girl: The Movie" is an award-winning documentary about a tween who loved movies--so much so that she wanted to direct her own.

Imagine Leah Adler Spielberg telling her son, who is working on the movie "Duel," that it's time to put away the camera and go to bed. "Steven, I'm telling you for the last time..." Actually, when filming Duel, Steven Spielberg was closer to 25 than 12, the age at which Emily Hagins directed her first film, "Pathogen."

"Zombie Girl: The Movie" is an award-winning documentary about a tween who loved movies--so much so that she wanted to direct her own. With her mother, Megan, handling the boom microphone (a mike duct-taped onto the end of a paint roller extension) and helping with transportation and other important film-making chores, such as shopping for and making props, and applying stage makeup to the actors, Hagins managed to make her movie. Dad Jerry appears as a researcher in the film and had a few film-making tasks for which he was responsible. Hagins even received a $1000 grant, which was of more interest to Mom, who had been financing, than to Emily.

"Zombie Girl: The Movie" features interviews with the Hagins family, as well as the cast and crew of "Pathogen," and Emily's mentors. Her big break was director Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) writing to a friend in Austin (where the Hagins live), telling him to assist the girl.

In between scenes of production, we see family members carving pumpkins, cooking and making music together. Megan and Emily have a few disagreements, most over "artistic vision," and Megan must walk the tightrope stretched between responsible mom and film tech.

Emily Hagins wrote "Pathogen" when she was ten years old. When filming began, she was twelve. She and her cast scheduled filming around homework, school holidays and events, and family activities. The bulk of filming occurred on weekends and during school vacations.

The movie is a very inspirational story about a young film maker and her family living through the process of making a feature length film. The film makers did a wonderful job in capturing the experience from both Emily and her parents' perspectives.
Wow! Emily has a lot of ambition and her devoted mother (Megan)is her number one fan.
The film is a wonderment of that special time at the brink of adolescents when possibilities seem endless and potential is unbound. The film also thoughtfully depicts the trepidations that naturally occur as children (Emily) make steps towards adulthood and parents allow that process to happen.

This has remained my favorite documentary, and one of my favorite movies, since I first saw a screener of it about two years ago. I'm so glad that it's finally reaching a wider audience now.

When I was writing "The New Horror Handbook," I not only wanted to cover some of the landmark horror movies of the 21st century, but also to include a section on the effect the genre has had on up-and-coming filmmakers. When I came across then-14-year-old Emily Hagins and her zombie movie "Pathogen," and the documentary about its making, "Zombie Girl: The Movie," I had to include a chapter on both.

"Zombie Girl" does something I've never seen accomplished before -- faithfully and lovingly document the joys and aggravations of the creative process. Sure, there are plenty of "making of" featurettes, some better than others. But this movie has two advantages. The primary one is Emily Hagins herself. This is a young girl brimming with creativity and drive, yet with enough maturity and support from her family to see her vision through to completion. Second, a refreshing lack of the manufactured drama that reality TV has made us all accustomed to. Finally, after watching this movie, chances are good that you will want to make your own movie, or write a novel, or paint a masterpiece -- whatever long-held creative passions you've carried with you suddenly won't seem so out of reach. I can't think of a greater accomplishment for a film.
