Lionsgate has just released a new poster for the upcoming horror comedy Cooties. In it you can see Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, and more fighting off a horde of child zombies. I had a chance to see the movie at Sundance a couple years ago, and it was freakin’ awesome! It has all of the ingredients that make up a cult classic film. In case you missed the trailer for it, make sure to check it out here.
From the minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of “Glee”), Cooties is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into little killer savages, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (Maniac, The Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) as teachers who fight to survive the mayhem while hilariously bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives.
The film was directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion. Cooties is set to hit select theaters and VOD on September 18th.
