Special to the Tyler Morning Telegraph
Susana Gibb, a veteran actress that is based out of Dallas, is featured in the movie “Daylight’s End,” which was shot in parts of Tyler and Dallas.
The film will show in the Dallas Independent Film Festival (DIFF).
“Daylight’s End” was shot in Dallas, Tyler and Mineral Wells and is directed by Will Kaufman and stars Johnny Strong (“The Fast and the Furious,” “Black Hawk Down”), Lance Henricksen (“The Terminator,” “Aliens”) and Hakeem Kae-Kazim (“Black Sails”).
Kaufman transforms Dallas into a post-apocalyptic wasteland in the action-packed survival horror film. After a mysterious infection transforms people into blood-thirsty creatures, a drifter, bent on vengeance, comes across a band of survivors desperate to escape the city. The ammunition is in stock, the adrenaline is high and time is of the essence – because, in this world, things go more than bump in the night.
Gibb plays the wife of Hakeem Kae-Kazim.
“This may have been one of the most fun shoots I’ve ever been on. Hundreds of creatures with tons of gun play and an amazing ensemble cast. It was also one of the hottest shoots I’ve ever been on. All that sweat and dirt was not all makeup. We shot in an old building that had no AC in August,” Susana Gibb said.
