Aussie zombie-centric horror comedy coming in July.
Perhaps the only trend more tired than the zombie apocalypse horror movie is the comedic zombie apocalypse horror movie. And even worse than that is the comedic zombie apocalypse horror movie with a pack of lovable losers as the protagonists.
Im whining, I know and Im sorry. But seriously, what hath SHAUN OF THE DEAD wrought?
Following the recent gory goofball ghoul antics of THE SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE comes the latest splatter laff epic, the awkwardly titled Australian zombie comedy ME AND MY MATES VS THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. Starring three of Australias biggest comedians, Alex Williamson, Jim Jefferies, and Greg Fleet, the beer-soaked romp will be released on July 5, 2016 on DVD, VOD, and Digital channels throughout U.S. and Canada by Lightyear Entertainment.
Heres the synopsis:
Three blue-collar Australian telecom tradesman, and some of their friends, are trapped in a telephone exchange during the onset of a zombie apocalypse. This is the first oz-zom-com and the laughs and mayhem are nonstop.
Sheesh. Not this writer’s cup of blood. What do you think?
ME AND MY MATES VS. THE ZOMBIE APOCALPYSE is produced by Daniel Sanguineti and Christian Doran; and written and directed by emerging filmmaker Declan Shrubb. Rights were licensed by Lightyear Entertainment (distributed through eOne Distribution) from worldwide sales agent Shoreline Entertainment.
