In a world ravaged by the undead, two men must not only survive a zombie apocalyptic mayhem, but also learn to survive each other. Or will they? On September 16, 2014, SCREAM FACTORY™ will release writer-director Jeremy Gardner’s enthralling zombie-horror drama THE BATTERY on Blu-ray™ and DVD.

THE BATTERY stars Jeremy Gardner, Adam Cronheim, Niels Boole, Alana O’Brien, Jamie Pantanella, Larry Fessenden and Kelly McQuade. Packed with insightful special bonus content, THE BATTERY is a must have for movie enthusiasts, loyal fans and collectors. The Blu-ray has a suggested retail price of $19.97 and $14.97 for the DVD.
Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other’s personalities — Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle, while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world. Mickey refuses to engage in Ben’s violent games and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted — a bed, a girl and a safe place to live.
