In this exclusive clip from the documentary Sam & Mattie Make a Zombie Movie, the cameras follow Sam Suchmann to home-room class, while Mattie Zufelt heads to his local library, where his request pile is getting somewhat out of control.
The clip is a love letter to librarians, and the vital role of libraries in nurturing filmmakers’ interests. “He gets a lot of Jersey Shore, which I find hysterical,” the issuing librarian reveals, as Mattie checks out Zombieland and Night of the Living Dead.
Directed by Robert Carnevale and Sam's brother Jesse Suchmann, Sam & Mattie Make a Zombie Movie follows the efforts of best friends Sam, Mattie, their family, friends and wider community (including executive producer Peter Farrelly) to realize their dream of making a movie, Spring Break Zombie Massacre, which features in full in the documentary, now available on VOD. Sam and Mattie also shared a list of their all-time favorite films. Rock on, go wild.
