Festival Info and Fun New Trailer for A Little Bit Zombie
Thus far we've totally dug on everything we've seen coming out of the camp of Casey Walker's A Little Bit Zombie, but this latest trailer has us sold hook, line, and stinker! I know, bad pun; but damn, if you ever smelled a corpse up close, you'd be laughing. Then retching. Then hoping nobody noticed it was you who made such a mess.
From the Press Release
The Victoria Film Festival has selected the romantic zombie comedy A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE by first-time feature film director Casey Walker as the Canadian Gala taking place on February 4th at the Odeon Theatre in beautiful downtown Victoria, British Columbia.
“We were pretty shocked that our little zombie movie was selected to be the Gala. It was while living on Vancouver Island in the 90s that I decided to go to film school so it’s kinda awesome to be going back there to premiere my first film,” said Walker, who has just released the film's official trailer.
Victoria Film Festival Director Kathy Kay commented, “With a shuffling community of zombie enthusiasts in Victoria, we’re thrilled to present ‘A Little Bit Zombie’ as our Canadian Gala film.”
In A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE Steve (Kristopher Turner) gets infected by a virus the week before his wedding and tries to keep it together so as to not incur the wrath of his Bridezilla-to-be (Crystal Lowe). While he attempts to fulfill his overwhelming desire for brains, he must elude an obsessed zombie hunter (Stephen McHattie) who is hot on his trail.
Considered a pioneer in crowdsourced fundraising, Walker financed A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE through his initiative called ‘My Million Dollar Movie.’ During the last five years he successfully raised $1.9 million by selling over 195,000 frames of the film to more than 600 people in over 25 countries.
The screenplay is co-written by Christopher Bond, co-creator of ‘Evil Dead The Musical’, and Trevor Martin. A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE was directed and produced by Walker, a veteran TV director (Survive This, The Adrenaline Project, How to be Indie), in association with Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central, Astral’s The Movie Network, the Ontario Media Development Corporation, and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation.
Several cast members will attend the Gala, including Shawn Roberts (Resident Evil: Afterlife), Crystal Lowe (Final Destination 3), Kristopher Turner (Instant Star), Kristen Hager (Being Human), and Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary).
