What's this? Carrie Ann Moss and Peter Stormare in a film “set in a small 1950s town where rotting zombies deliver the mail.” Is everyone going zombie-crazy lately or what..?
Actually Fido (which starts production monday) sounds allright, and at least it has a more impressive cast list than say, ROTLD 4 or 5. Also joining Moss and Stormare in this independent horror-comedy from Anagram Pictures film are Henry Czerny (Clear and Present Danger and Tim Blake Nelson. The movie will be directed by Andrew Currie who wrote a script based on Dennis Heaton's story with Heaton and Robert Chomiack.
Coming off a little like the sequel to the UK's Shaun of the Dead, Fido details the effects of Earth’s passage through a cloud of space dust, which results in the dead arising from their graves.
In an attempt to quell the mayhem, a patented “domestication collar” is invented by a company called ZomCon, helping society integrate the zombie hordes, who quickly become “gardeners, milkmen, butlers and even pets.”
In the sleepy suburban town of Willard, a boy named Timmy Robinson befriends a ghoul (calling him Fido!) that his mom buys to help around the house — and then has to defend his new pal when the creature’s collar goes wonky and it begins reverting to its flesheating ways.
23rd Mar 04 Forget the Ed Gein movie – this is where its at. Deranged is darkly hilarious but also deeply disturbing account of the nefarious activities of the same person, but is executed with much more skill than the Ed Gein movie.
