Fireside Chats: Corona Zombies!
God bless Charles Band and Full Moon. It didn’t take them long—AT ALL—to get this one cooked. CORONA ZOMBIES is exactly what it sounds like, a zombie movie wherein the living dead are somehow connected to the Covid-19 viral pandemic. Described by Full Moon as “a satirical—and timely—vision of a global pandemic spiraling out of control, one that causes its victims to become…Corona Zombies!…the film is about a government asleep at the wheel! The wealthy shrugging it off! And a virus that causes its victims to get up and kill! The people they kill…get up and kill!”
Damn. Hitting all the nails on all the heads with this one. A government asleep at the wheel? Ours damn sure was. Wealthy assclowns shrugging the whole thing off? Check. A virus that causes its victims to get up and kill? Okay, maybe not that one. But all the other points are being pressed. The best satire is the kind with bite, and it sure sounds like this one will have plenty of that. Zombie bite, that is. And since the best zombie movies are satirical, this one could be a classic in the making.
I won’t get to watch it, but you can, if you have access to Amazon streaming and/or the Full Moon Features channel. The movie releases on April 10th. Watch the trailer here.
And I say again, DAMN that was fast!
