by Robert Carnevale & Jesse Suchmann. 2021. 107 min.
Directed by Rockaway resident Robert Carnevale & Jesse Suchmann, Sam and Mattie Make a Zombie Movie is feel-good blood and guts. Sam and Mattie are two best friends who are determined to make the most epic zombie movie ever. Confounding disability stigmas, the film is a spectacular display of DIY gore and a joyous example of friendship and community.
Post-screening discussion with stars Sam Suchmann & Mattie Zufelt and filmmakers Jesse Suchmann & Robert Carnevale.
