Range 15, Real Special Forces Combat Zombies
Range 15, the latest post-apocalyptic themed film will release on the 15th of June 2016. The formula centers on cannibalistic undead and survivors aiming to escape from getting devoured. Unlike previous contributions to the zombie sub-genre, “Range 15” offers a different perspective. The film is patriotic. Patriotic? Indeed, the production is a collaborative venture by decorated military servicemen turned filmmakers.
All indie film productions have underlying agenda, a tale of determination. Whether it is to make it big in Hollywood or to achieve the first feature, indie filmmakers have a set goal in mind. For “Ranger 15” the aim was to create a film dedicated to the brave men and women of the armed forces.
- Retired Navy Seal and Navy Cross recipient Marcus Luttrell,
- Medal of Honor recipients Leroy Petry and Clint Romesha,
- Current Army Special Forces/UFC Fighter Tim Kennedy
- Retired Army Sergeant/Two division UFC Champion Randy Couture.
The film employed more than twenty-five military amputees for on-screen roles. Amazing. Watch the behind the scenes videos to “Range 15”. It becomes evident to the viewer, the profound camaraderie between the cast and crew.
Comedian and Actor, writer, Producer, Ross Patterson directed and co-wrote “Range 15”. West Point and retired infantry officer turned entrepreneur Nick Palmisciano co-wrote the screenplay. Contributing writers were; Mat Best, Jarred Taylor, Jack Mandaville, and Vincent Vargas.

According to press release issued on the 17th of May 2016, “Range 15” is described as:
“…A film that isn’t for people who want to analyze whether or not they should go to a theater because the plot doesn’t agree with their delicate sensibilities. Range 15 is a throat-punch that leaves the audience gasping for dignity…”
