Zombies took over Black Notley at the weekend as filming took place for a short film.

Mike Jarman, 26, a photographer of Braintree, started the film, entitled “The Vicious Dead”, in February 2012 after making a short film on the idea and people really liking it and encouraging him to develop it into a short film.

The film centres on Chase Connor (played by Kevin Jarvis), who hacks into the cameras of an unknown laboratory leading to him being chased by henchman and zombies.
