The campy, fun and bloody Attack of the Southern Fired Zombies is getting released this month and it’s as fun as the title implies.
This film was such a festival favorite that Gravitas Veritas felt it was too good to pass up and slapped their label on it for domestic distribution. It will be available on Digital HD everywhere Tuesday, March 13, 2018
iHorror got an exclusive and bloody extended clip of the film that’s destined to be a cult favorite.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Charleston, Mississippi, the hometown of actor Morgan Freeman and Blues pianist Mose Allison, has been chosen by a large agrochemical corporation – GloboBioTech – to test its new chemical, Quadoxin.
The herbicide Quadoxin is intended to control the kudzu vine which is highly invasive and notoriously hard to kill. Native to Asia, kudzu was introduced into the United States as a fodder crop and for erosion control.
Kudzu grows extremely fast (One ft/day) in the southeastern US climate, spreading unchecked and destroying power lines, buildings, and native vegetation in its path.
With the Mose Allison Music Festival going on, everyone is in downtown Charleston celebrating. Lonnie is helping his uncle and aunt, Ed and Nancy Nelson sell meat pies at the festival.
The famous and popular meat pies are made with Creighton’s goats, which feed on the sprayed kudzu. Once the Quadoxin enters the human food chain it metabolizes in the people who consume it, turning them into zombies – “Kudzu Zombies”.
Lonnie must lead a mismatched group of “healthy eaters” who didn’t eat the meat pies to escape. Now forced to defend themselves against their friends and fellow town citizens, they must get to the airport and fly to safety.”
The film stars Timothy Haug, Moses J. Moseley (The Walking Dead), Wyntergrace Williams (This Just In), Megan Few (Demons), Escalante Lundy (Django Unchained), Kaitlin Mesh, and Clay Acker. Zombie Makeup & SFX by Jonathan Thornton.
From a screenplay by Christian Hokenson, and produced by Daniel Wood, p.g.a., Mark Newton, Juri Koll, and Per Ericson, with co-producer Stephan Stromer.
