Genre specialist Black Mandala has unleashed the trailer for Johnny Z, part martial arts movie, part zombie flick, all action.


Johnny is half human and half zombie; his blood may very well cure the zombie epidemic. After escaping a medical prison called Nordac, he comes under the guidance of Grandmaster Jonray and his brother Crisanto. This sets Johnny on a path using his martial arts skills to find a doctor who can create the cure; while also helping his master to fight some personal demons.


Johnny Z stars Michael Merchant (Amityville Death House) and martial arts master Felix Cortes (stunts Daredevil, Wonder Woman 1984).


The film has racked up several awards, including the “Best Sci-fi Feature Film” at New York City Horror Film Festival and the “Best Action/Adventure Feature Film,” “Best Hero” (Michael Merchant), and “Best FX” at Genre Blast Film Festival.


“Johnny Z has been a passion project of mine for over ten years and I know audiences will dig it. It’s straight action horror with tons of gore!”. Director Jonathan Straiton (Night of Something Strange) has stated.
