November 9, 2013


ZOMBIES will be back on the prowl around the Potteries next week when filming resumes on a horror film.

The Mothertown tells the story of an undead outbreak taking hold of Stoke-on-Trent and deals with a number of local characters as they struggle to stay alive.

It is the first full-length feature film directed by John Williams, of Wolstanton.

John, aged 39, said: It is going okay. We will be back filming again next weekend at the Tollgate in Blurton.

John's previous films ran to about 20 minutes in length and were produced on a budget of less than Pounds 10.

The Mothertown has a budget of Pounds 500.

Profits will be donated to Frankie's Fight, the charity set up by the family of Burslem toddler Frankie Allen, who is battling cancer.
