One of the joys of being plugged into the comic book, sci-fi, horror, etc. genres is coming across little gems you might otherwise have missed. To that end we just found a hilarious new web series from FEARnet called Zombie Roadkill. We include some photos and a link to the first episode below. Find the rest of the episodes at FEARnet.com. Enjoy!
In this terrifyingly funny new series from FEARnet and Ghost House Pictures, a group of college kids driving on an unfamiliar winding road through a national park accidentally run over an unsuspecting squirrel. They quickly discover that this is no ordinary road – the woods are alive with the undead, animals reanimated as vengeful, murderous zombies!
After a harrowing crash, a meek but lovable Simon (David Dorfman, The Ring, Texas Chainsaw Massacre) must venture out to find help for his injured friends and brother. Along the way he runs into dedicated park ranger, Chet Masterson (Thomas Haden Church, Spider-Man 3, Sideways). Together, they attempt to survive this cursed stretch of highway – hopefully with most of their body parts intact.
Genre icons Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert (The Evil Dead Series, Drag Me to Hell) along with Jim Burns shepherded this six part original web series. Ben Ketai (30 Days of Night: Dark Days) and Sarah Donohue (Hatchet II) served as Executive Producers. David Green, whose Meltdown short garnered critical acclaim on the festival circuit, brings a fresh take to the genre in directing this twisted tale about twisted tails.
