Image Entertainment's trailer for State of Emergency makes it clear that this is not your average zombie movie. For one, unlike most undead thrillers, we get somewhat of a concrete reason as to why people become these hideous creatures. Jay Hayden stars as Jim, a man trapped within the quarantine zone after a bio-weapons plant explosion turns practically everyone into a flesh-eating monster. Take a look at the new footage from this zombie thriller, debuting on DVD April 16, along with the artwork and special features details.

State of Emergency DVD

A bio-plant explosion will forever change the dynamic of a small country town. A man will be forced to kill those very people he once held dear. On April 16th, Image Entertainment challenges you to escape zombie-ridden Montgomery County with the release of State of Emergency. This harrowing tale of survival amongst the undead is directed by Turner Clay (Interception) and stars Jay Hayden (A Warrior's Heart), Tori White (Silent Night) and Andy Stahl (The Blind Side).

After an explosion unleashes the contents of a military bio-weapons plant, the unsuspecting populace is transformed into a roaming army of flesh-eating zombies. Trapped in the quarantine zone, Jim finds himself cut off, confused and fighting for his own survival. Contacted by a small band of others unaffected by the toxins, Jim sets out to reach their besieged warehouse. Becoming the survival group's de-facto leader, he struggles to keep order as they hunker down, fortify their stronghold and arm themselves against the attacking mutants. Fragmentary radio reports from outside hint at a last-ditch government rescue plan.

But can the survivors hold out until help arrives... or will they succumb to the living hell of an undead apocalypse? Will anybody survive?
