Zombie Killers was filmed between December 1999 and January 2000. It is one of the first student movies made at C.W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute located at Finch Avenue and Sentinel Road.
 
Zombie Killers was an O.A.C. (grade 13) drama class exam project by Paul Nguyen. An estimate 100 hours was spent to shoot, edit and mix the sound for the film. Paul received a grade of 100% and accepted the C.W. Jefferys Art Award in 2000.
 
Zombie Killers was shot on a Sony Hi8 Handycam and fully edited in-camera. The actors repeated action sequences several times to mimic the look of multiple camera angles. Paul Nguyen served as the fight choreographer and it was the first time he worked with actors and fellow C.W. Jefferys students Faruk Gumus and Justin Zimmerman. Faruk would later reappear in Stalker (2001) and Birth Control (2004).
 
Trivia: Paul skipped his final art exam to mix the sound effects for Zombie Killers at Peckham Public School. In the original sound edit, sounds effects by handmade using crumpled paper for bone-crunches and pulling masking tape for stabbing sounds. Mark Simms makes a guest appearance as the Bandaged Zombie.
 
In January 2011, Zombie Killers was remastered in 720p high definition.
