“In this peaceful town, on these quiet streets, something terrifying, something horrifying is coming,” a voiceover intones, followed by the town’s cafe getting invaded by the undead.
Details for this film have been kept under a tight wrap. Even with that being said, however, Gomez, Butler, Sevigny, and Driver were spotted filming the movie last summer in upstate New York. It would seem just like George Romero’s films, zombies in this film will be a metaphor for the challenges or failings of modern day society. One of the fun things about this film is their comedic angle. There is a large number of celebrity zombie cameos to keep fans engaged. Still hard to tell, but from the trailer, above we can see that this might prove to be a cult classic.
“This is really awful, maybe the worst thing I’ve ever seen,” Murray’s horrified deputy notes upon arriving on the scene.
Murray and Driver then investigate a gravesite that’s been disturbed at the local cemetery, with Driver concluding, “Oh, man, this isn’t going to end well.”
The trailer wraps with Driver leaning out of a moving sheriff’s cruiser and using a sword to behead a zombie, prompting Murray to compliment his swing and recall that he had played Minor League Baseball.
