Decay movie shot at CERN

Decay, a newly released movie filmed by Luke Thompson, a University of Manchester physics Ph.D. student and first-time filmmaker, was shot on location at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.  It’s a low-budget “B-horror” film but the dark corridors at LHC give it a pretty eerie vibe and make it a pretty interesting watch.  Set at the Large Hadron Collider, the film centers around zombies created from exposure to the newly-discovered Higgs boson. As they try desperately to escape from the underground maintenance tunnels, they are hunted by the remains of a maintenance team, who have become less than human.

The film was shot on a low budget.  The team built a camera shoulder-mount from copper pipes, made fake blood from golden syrup, and scavenged props from dumpsters. It was shot on borrowed digital SLRs including the Canon 5D Mark 2, consumer cameras which have recently been used to shoot parts of movies such as Iron Man 2, Black Swan and the entire season 6 finale of TV series House. Editing and digital effects were done entirely on a desktop computer using Adobe Premier Pro and Adobe After Effects. The film is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial / CC-BY-NC, which means you can freely copy, share and re-use the film however you like.
