Independent zombie flick films at historic jail
Placeholder Image
Dawson County's Historic Jail will serve as the backdrop for an independent movie being filmed in mid-June. Writer and producer Jeffery Bucchino said crews will be in Dawsonville the weekend of June 11-12 to shoot scenes for Cellblock Z, which chronicles the lives of two inmates who wake up to find the zombie apocalypse has erupted outside their prison cell. "I was reading a book on zombies and had this idea about what if you were stuck in your prison cell while the zombie apocalypse broke out, and you just wake up one morning and the entire cell block right outside your bars is filled with zombies," he said last week.
