Zombie Roadkill is the kind of self-explanatory title that I love. It's like Zombie Strippers, another relatively recent title that is so open and simple that you instantly know exactly what you're signing up for (unlike the outraged mother who commented repeatedly on my Piranha 3D review about how disgusted she was that she had taken her under-17 children to such a sinful movie).
So you want Zombie Roadkill? FEARNet is going to give you Zombie Roadkill! I've shared the full synopsis for their new fall series below the trailer, but basically just imagine what would happen if the re-animating powers of Pet Sematary spanned an entire highway. It sounds - and looks - like a ton of fun:
Academy-Award nominated actor Thomas Haden Church co-stars as a tough as nails Park Ranger who teams with an unsuspecting teenager, played by David Dorfman, to escape a cursed stretch of highway that resurrects roadkill in the form flesh-eating zombie animals. This new breed of terror is not just playing dead.
Zombie Roadkill also stars Toni Wynne, Jeff D'Agostino, Cherilyn Wilson, and Michael Blaiklock and centers around a group of college kids as they are driving on an unfamiliar road. Everything seems fit for a road trip to the lake, but when the group accidentally runs over an unsuspecting squirrel, they quickly realize there will be a price to pay. The cursed road brings the zombie squirrel back to life to haunt the kids. After the kids crash and everyone is injured except the younger brother, he is forced to set out on a journey to defeat the ancient curse and save his brother and friends before it is too late.
