Acclaimed Festival Circuit Horrormentary 'I AM ALONE' Hunts Down Distribution at AFM

9:06 PM

I AM ALONE, a survival “horrormentary” starring Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood, Sherlock Holmes 2010, Dark Signal), and Gunner Wright (Love 2011, Highway to Dhampus), has recently taken the horror film fest circuit by storm, racking up wins for Best Zombie Film and Best Actor at Fright Night Film Fest (Louisville, KY), Audience Choice and Best Director awards at RIP Horror International Film Festival (Hollywood, CA), and a second Best Actor prize for Gareth David-Lloyd at Scare-A-Con (Liverpool, NY).

I Am Alone tells the story of a small town being infected, almost instantly, by an unknown virus while an adventure reality show is being filmed in the area. The TV host's video logs, found a few days after his own terrific infection, may contain the clues that will help the authorities find a cure and save the world from the apocalypse.

Director Robert Palmer (Gene Simmons: Family Jewels) and producer Michael A. Weiss reinvented the subgenre of horror by blending elements of reality TV, classic zombie flicks, documentary, surveillance cam, and blood curdling suspense.
“Our goal was to delve into new territory within the horror genre by taking the survival of man to its extreme. To make our character’s journey feel raw and authentic we used different storytelling techniques and employed various shooting formats; all with the intention of contrasting humanity against brutality amidst the unfolding apocalypse,” director Robert Palmer said.
This ultra-low budget production was made possible with the support of the entire town of Montrose, Colorado.

Local authorities and citizens alike worked together to help with everything from providing locations to appearing as zombies in the film.

The filmmakers even got permission to close Main Street for several days in order to shoot the more ambitious scenes.

Local restaurants and shops doled out food and supplies, which helped alleviate the harsh conditions of a shoot deep in the wilderness, 10,000 feet above sea level.
“We had over 300 extras and crew, the real people of Montrose who helped in every capacity possible. Thanks to word-of-mouth, we got kids in schools telling their friends about our film. Parents talked to other parents and everyone came out to support. They donated an entire mountain to us and closed down Main Street. Everyone contributed something, even an 80 year-old grandmother who cooked food for the crew every night. We really couldn’t have made ‘I Am Alone’ without the support of the city of Montrose,” producer Michael A. Weiss said.
After a successful screening at Scare-A-Con in New York, I Am Alone was reviewed by 411Mania’s Bryan Kristopowitz who proclaimed it “an awesome zombie flick,” adding that “Horror movie nerds will definitely dig it.”

I Am Alone is being represented at the American Film Market (AFM) by Tiffany Boyle, vice president of packaging & sales at RAMO LAW PC.

The reps are looking for distribution and sales in all territories. They can be reached at

The creative duo of Palmer and Weiss are also taking meetings at the market for upcoming projects, including the horror feature film, The Patch, about four friends who must fight for their lives in a pumpkin patch.
