Ok, this movie looks freaking' awesome! I'm sorry, but how can you go wrong with a series called Zombie Roadkill, where a bunch of animal roadkill comes back from the dead to horrifically kill people!
Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures is producing this great little horror project. Zombie Roadkill is set to premiere on FearNET on October 4th and then be released on their new channel mid-October.
Following the debut, one new episode of the six-episode series will be released daily through the 8th. The terrifyingly twisted new show will also play on the FEARnet On Demand VOD network with the first three episodes becoming available on October 14th and the final episodes becoming available October 21st.
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.
