And Austin’s Fantastic Fest just got a bit more fantastic with the announcement of some “Zombie Roadkill” festivities that are sure to get the fans even more excited for the new FEARnet series’ premiere on October 4th. Best of all? If you’re attending the Fest, you won’t have to wait for October!
Friday, September 24th, will see the world premiere of “Zombie Roadkill” in its entirety at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar at 8:00 PM with stars Thomas Haden Church and David Dorfman, director David Greeen, and writer Henry Gayden all in attendance. In addition, FEARnet will be handing out a never-seen before poster (which you can see below) featuring Thomas Haden Church in his ranger costume (missing an arm of course) around the festival. FEARnet will also have the “Zombie Roadkill” taco truck handing out free tacos around the festival on Friday and Saturday, including at the premiere. The truck will have some other giveaways as well.
The horror-comedy features Academy Award-nominated actor Church as a tough as nails Park Ranger who teams with an unsuspecting teenager, played by Dorfman, to escape a cursed stretch of highway that resurrects roadkill in the form of flesh eating zombie animals.
Zombie Roadkill follows a group of college kids driving on an unfamiliar winding road through a national park. The group is heading for a fun weekend away, but when they accidentally run over a “harmless” squirrel, everything takes a dark turn and they quickly discover that this is no ordinary road. In fact, the woods are alive with the undead: wronged woodland creatures that have been reanimated as vengeful, murderous zombies!
