As a member of the directing duo known as The Vicious Brothers, Colin Minihan took us on a paranormal-fueled adventure in Grave Encounters, and now he's entering the zombie apocalypse with his next film, It Stains the Sands Red, which now has an official release date from Dark Sky Films.

It Stains the Sands Red will be released in select theaters and on VOD and Digital HD from Dark Sky Films beginning July 28th. Directed by Minihan from a screenplay he wrote with Stuart Ortiz, It Stains the Sands Red  stars Brittany Allen, Juan Riedinger, Merwin Mondesir, Kris Higgins, Michael Filipowich, Andrew Supanz, and Nico David.

"In the throes of a zombie apocalypse, Molly, a troubled woman from Las Vegas, finds herself stranded in the desert with a lone ravenous zombie on her trail. At first, she's easily able to outpace her undead pursuer, but things quickly become a nightmare when she realizes the zombie doesn't need to ever stop and rest. Running low on supplies and beat down by the harsh environment, Molly will have to summon the strength she never knew she had to ultimately face both the zombie and the demons that have chased her all her life. The film will play this year's LA Film Festival and will be released in theaters by MPI Media Group's genre division, Dark Sky Films in Summer 2017."
