On DVD February 25, 2014
Toronto, ON – Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada and IndustryWorks Pictures present the zombie-infection horror film Toxin on DVD in Canada February 25. Set on a remote island amongst the backdrop of a government conspiracy, this film delivers action and gore!
Lieutenant John Paxton (Douglas Chapman of Inception, 300, Watchmen) makes his way back to the forbidden island that once served as a secret government testing facility where biological and chemical weapons were devised to create the ultimate killing machine super-soldiers. Paxton’s plan of hijacking a small island hopper plane goes horribly wrong when it crashes, leaving the survivors to await rescue on the deserted island. As the action ramps up, group dynamics amongst the cast of characters stranded becomes as big a threat to them as the infected denizens of the island Paxton struggles to fulfill his mission of revenge against the very government that abandoned and betrayed him, leaving him to die after a secret biological warfare experiment went horribly wrong.
Directed by the highly accomplished film and digital media artist Tom Raycove (VFX for ‘XFiles,’ ‘Outer Limits,” X-Men, Executive Producer for American Mary) Toxin also features Krya Zagorsky (The ABCs of Death, ‘Helix’), Philip Granger (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, ‘The Killing’), and Patrick Sabongui (Godzilla, The Cabin In The Woods).
Disrupted Logic Interactive on behalf of IndustryWorks Pictures created a first-person shooter video game Toxin: Zombie Annihilation in conjunction with the film, developed with Tom Raycove’s experience as a senior editor and visual effects artist at Electronic Arts Inc. In this fast action and intense game, the toxin has the deadly power of turning ordinary people into mindless killing machines who are impervious to pain. You are Lieutenant John Paxton, one of the best the military has ever produced, armed with a Beretta, a M16 and unlimited grenades. Your mission is to make your way through endless waves of raging zombies and fight your way to save humanity. The game is available now on Android and iOS on iTunes, Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
