In the world of HERD, zombies aren't your typical lumbering, brain-munching foes. Instead, they are a relentless force pulsating with an ooze that spells doom for anyone in their path. As if that's not enough to contend with, the last remnants of humanity are embroiled in a bitter militia war, leaving no safe haven in sight.

HERD offers a chilling and electrifying experience that promises to redefine the zombie genre. Are you ready to pick your poison? Will you side with one of the ruthless militias, or will you brave the impending zombie apocalypse?

Using film as his medium, Director Steven Pierce made it his mission to explore what can happen when small, insular communities come into conflict with larger society. In his multilayered film HERD, a woman trying to outrun her past ends up trapped between a zombie outbreak and warring militia groups while back in her hometown and must fight for love and survival.

With a blistering pace that never lets up, HERD examines how group-think or “herd-thinking” drives otherwise normal people to incredible and sometimes heinous acts. It updates the horror genre while satisfying the needs of the dedicated horror audience.


When Jamie Miller and her wife, Alex Kanai, try to save their failing marriage by going on a canoe trip in rural Missouri, they find themselves stranded after an accident. Alex breaks her leg during a canoe flip and they must slowly make their way to the nearest small town for help. Upon arriving they find it has been overrun by virus-infected “Heps” and extreme right wing local militias who are battling them.

The leader of one of the groups, "Big John Gruber", shuttles them to safety at his bunker where they are welcomed by a seemingly friendly group of locals, but after witnessing personal and gruesome horrors, the women know they must escape.

Jamie and Alex now find themselves on the run, caught between the group that saved them, a competing militia, and the growing infected Hep threat.
