Originally titled Kudzu Zombies, the film that won the Goriest Film award at FANtastic Horror Film Festival a couple of weekends back has now changed its title to the decidedly more finger-lickin’ Attack of the Southern Fried Zombies. Gravitas Ventures have acquired the film for distribution with a North American release set for March 2018. For the moment, we have a new trailer, cut just before that name change.
In the film, the kudzu covered hills of Charleston, Mississippi are ground zero for GloboBioTech, a company testing an experimental herbicide called Quadoxin. When the tests go horribly wrong and the citizens of the small town start to turn into zombies, Lonnie, a crop duster pilot, must lead a mismatched group of survivors to escape the deadly horde.
Mark Newton directed the crazy looking zombie flick from a screenplay by Christian Hokenson. The film stars Timothy Haug (Malady), Moses J. Moseley (The Walking Dead), Wyntergrace Williams (This Just In), Megan Few (Demons), Escalante Lundy (Django Unchained) and Miles Doleac (Don’t Kill It).
