In this behind-the-scenes featurette, the cast and crew shed light on the film, about a magical film that turns an entire town into zombies, leaving two teenagers to save everyone.

Aykroyd plays a filmmaker who lives in the city and who has used the magic piece of film to make some of his previous films.

“I play Len Carver,” says the Canadian actor, “and he had a great career doing movies with zombies in them, made a lot of money and became very famous. But the secret is that every film he made trapped the actors in the film.”

Chase, who plays Mezmarian, jokes, “Zombie movies? They’re talking about zombies. You know, everyone needs one in their living room.”
