Lightning Hits Cold Hours


Cold Hours poster (click to see it bigger!)Anyone else sick to death (pun intended) of the new ways filmmakers try to make zombie movies interesting again? Me either.

Variety is reporting that Lightning Entertainment has nabbed the rights to a very different sounding Spanish horror film, The Cold Hour, the latest effort from Elio Quiroga, whom fans may know as the director behind the animated adaptation of Stephen King’s fantastic zombie story “Home Delivery.”

Cold Hour is bit different. In a future world where chemical warfare has turned most of the dead into flesh-craving ghouls, a group of survivors try to eek out a normal existence. Periodic blasts of sub-zero temperature make it impossible for the survivors to leave, hence the title.

Lightning will handle all the international distro for the flick, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for info on a U.S. release. Quiroga is prepping his next film NO DO about a woman (Thesis’ Ana Torrent) who receives visitations from dead girls after having lost her own baby.
