The Wretched is an original fusion of gothic western and classic horror—A Fistful of Dollars meets Dawn of the Dead. In it, a talented young bounty hunter named Twenty-One, encounters a new, other-worldly breed of hunter, Rellik. Rellik is a bounty hunter of zombies. He introduces his apprentice, Twenty-One, to a world where Zombie outlaws roam the earth, avoiding capture and incarceration in the prisoner catacombs for the Undead, located beneath an ancient Monastery.

The Wretched begins as a classic tale of Master and Apprentice, with slices of black humor reminiscent of "J" and "K" in Men In Black. The humor turns into horror, however, as a wagon train of misguided travelers stumble upon the Monastery and unwittingly release the Undead locked within. When Rellik and Twenty-One return from the boy's first demonic bounty-hunt, they find themselves facing a jail-break like no other.

Leading the cast of this western horror flick is Chow Yun-Fat, who became an international martial arts sensation after his performance in the critically-acclaimed, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.” He has also starred in movies like “Bullet Proof Monk,” “Anna and The King,” “The Corrupter,” and “The Replacement Killers.” Chow Yun-Fat will attract action and martial arts fans as well as international audiences who are seeking a scary, action-packed thrill ride through a zombie-infested Old West.
