Video: Night of the Lonely Dead

Clare filmmaker, James Skerritt, is making the most of the bad situation. The Lahinch native has taken advantage of the damage caused by Storms Catherine and the St Bridget’s Day storm to shoot a post-apocalyptic film on location in storm-wrecked Lahinch and Doolin.
The Zombie-fill romantic comedy, or Zom-Com, was shot on Location on the Lahinch Promenade, the Doolin Pier and in the storm damaged setting of O’Looney’s on the Lahinch Prom. The film, which is entitled ‘Night of the Lonely Dead’, tells the short of Jim O’Zombie, a north Clare Zombie and his quest for love in Lahinch. Jim is played by Peadar Clancy, who also wrote the film with James. Cliona Falvey takes on the role of Zombie Sarah while Hugh Galloway plays Zombie Hugo.
The film also feature excellent special effects and costumes by Aoife Murray as well as sound effects and score by Paddy Mulcahy.
James would like to thank everyone who gave their time and energy to the production including everyone from O’Looney’s Pub in Lahinch, and contributions made in a voluntary capacity by cast and crew.
