Horror and zombie fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Canada's latest zombie flick: “A Little Bit Zombie”, starring Vancouver actress and one of Hollywood’s most in-demand ‘Scream Queens’, Crystal Lowe. Fresh off winning the award for Best Feature Film at the Canadian Film Fest, and the Gold Remi Award for Best Dark Comedy at the Houston International Film Festival, “A Little Bit Zombie” has become a smash hit on the indie film festival circuit and is headed to theatres for a special weekend event across Canada on May 17-20, 2012.
“A Little Bit Zombie” provides a new twist on the romantic-comedy-zombie genre that has solidified its status as a new cult classic. The film follows the adventures of a mild-mannered HR manager (Kristopher Turner) who becomes infected with a virus during a weekend get-away with his fiancée, sister, and best friend. He must elude the obsessed zombie hunter hot on his trail while he attempts to fulfill his new desire for brains and avoid the wrath of his bridezilla-to-be, played by Crystal. “A Little Bit Zombie” was co-written by Christopher Bond (‘Evil Dead: The Musical’) and Trevor Martin.
Elsewhere in the world of sci-fi, Crystal is currently filming a series lead role in SPACE TV’s original mythological/action series “PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD”. Crystal plays Toby Nance, a young cool PHD scientist who is Evan Crosses's right hand girl. Set in Vancouver against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest, the 13-episode, one-hour series is a North American spin-off of the hit U.K. television series, “PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD”. The show follows a specialized team of animal experts and scientists that investigates the appearance of temporal anomalies and battles both prehistoric and futuristic creatures. Existing fans of the PRIMEVAL brand and the SPACE audience alike are sure to be excited by the imminent crossover from the original series into the NEW WORLD.
Last fall, audiences saw Crystal star opposite Ryan Robbins at The 2011 Vancouver International Film Festival in Kimani Ray Smith’s short “Suffer”. The short film thrills as kidnapped professional fighter, Logan O’Connor (Robbins) is thrown into an underground fighting tournament where he must save himself from cannibals or risk being served up for dinner. The film has already won "Best Horror Short" at the 2011 Action On Film Festival.
Crystal is well known for many of her starring roles in the horror genre which include blockbuster features such as “Killer Mountain”, “Yeti: Curse of The Snow Demon”, “Wrong Turn 2”, “Black Christmas”, “Snakes On A Plane”, “Masters of Horror”, “Scary Movie 4”, “Final Destination 3”, and “Children of The Corn: Revelations”, just to name a few.
Crystal is not only an actor, but a former model as well--and has even been featured in another entertainment genre in the videogames “Need for Speed 2004” and “Fight Night 2004”.
