Conceived when filmmaker Emily Hagins was 12 and released when she was 15, PATHOGEN is one of the most accomplished horror movies ever made by a person before they could legally drive a car. A mysterious technology has transformed the residents of Austin, TX into flesh-craving zombies. Armed with a knife, an axe, and many pairs of flip-flops, middleschooler Dannie and her pee-wee zombie squad take to the streets to battle undead parents, teens, and even a toddler. With an impressive devotion to editing and storytelling, PATHOGEN delivers eyeball gouging, decapitations, and knife fights, along with an endearing perspective that could only originate from a teenager. AGFA + Bleeding Skull! are overjoyed to give PATHOGEN its first-ever wide release, complete with ZOMBIE GIRL: THE MOVIE—a feature-length documentary about the making of the movie.
