Sandman Thomas Haden Church Introduces Sam Raimi’s New Web Series ZOMBIE ROADKILL!!
FEARnet can’t post this until Monday. But we’ve got it right now:
I am – Hercules!!
I’m told the series will screen next month at Austin’s premiere film festival, Fantastic Fest, before it arrives on FEARnet.com on Oct. 4.
It was directed by producer Grant Curtis’ “Spider-Man 3” assistant David Green from a screenplay by screenwriter Alvin Sargent’s “Spider-Man 3” assistant Henry Gayden. It’s from “Spider-Man 3” director Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures, the same outfit behind the “Grudge” movies and “Drag Me To Hell.”
From the press release:
Academy-Award nominated actor Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3, Sideways, Wings) co-stars as a tough as nails Park Ranger who teams with an unsuspecting teenager, played by David Dorfman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Ring films), 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 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.

After all, zombies are the new vampires. Just ask Zsa Zsa Gabor. In about, say, five days. What, too soon?

Sam and Tom were fucked over by Avi "Samwell, can we makes Venom in the moviefilm?" Arad on SM3, so here's hoping this turns out better for them.

And especially funny zombies. But this is at least a little different. I'll give it a chance. Really, though, I think I'm more jaded on zombies than on vampires.
