In Daddy, I’m a Zombie, the CGI animation feature follows Dixie, the confused teen who wakes up as a zombie after a strange tempest hits town. With the help of Isis, an Egyptian mummy, and Gonner, a pirate zombie, Dixie seeks out a mysterious man in the forest who holds the key to returning her back to life. The film is co-directed by Joan Espinach and Ricardo Ramón and written by Daniel Torres.
An ironic comedy with an emphasis on the importance of friendship, Ruby Gloom highlights the premise that things are not always as they seem. Ruby lives on the outskirts of Gloomsville in a Victorian mansion with her off-beat circle of friends. She pays no attention to unusual appearances, perceptive only to hearts and souls, and is truly the best friend everyone wishes they had.
Building on the popular Tales from the Cryptkeeper television series and comic books, the feature length DVD release entitled Tales from the Cryptkeeper - Myth Conception dusts off the spooky vault and creepy characters for more chilling adventures with the Cryptkeeper.
