"Once the shining star of horror, Willard Wyler's crafted the most captivating films that hypnotized audiences and left them begging for more... blood. Years ago, the genius director slowly retreated into obscurity; never to be seen again. Or so everyone thought... Now he's back — ready to deliver thrills, chills, style, a gripping story — and of course, a body count!"
Willard Wyler previously wrote and directed two films, Disco Devil and Nightmare Summer released on June 13, 1975 and April 13, 1979 respectively.
In the intro of Zombies in Spaceland, Wyler invites four actors (Andre, Sally, Poindexter and A.J.) to his theater, where he explains they will play a part in his return to the big screen, telling them of the first scene of his movie called Zombies in Spaceland. After leaving the viewing room and manically laughing, Wyler enters the projector room, where he approaches a ritual circle. He then uses a Malice dagger to cut open his left hand, causing his blood to spill onto the ritual circle with pictures of the four actors on it, causing the four actors to be sucked into the movie.
However, the four manage to ruin Wyler's plan and they manage to escape the film with one of the fragmented pieces of the Soul Key. Angered by this, Wyler sends the four to another one of his movies, known as Rave in the Redwoods. However, they manage to obtain another piece of the Soul Key from within the movie.
