Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell is back to wage war on zombies – only this time, rather than brains, they’re hungering for that heavily-discounted 65″ flatscreen.
We’ve seen Bruce Campbell battling zombies before, but this time the hero of the Evil Dead films is taking on shambling, hollow-eyed enemies of a different kind: Black Friday shoppers.
The film Black Friday, which releases on digital platforms on February 11th, looks set to be another addition to the ‘zom-com’ genre, and most likely will also follow in the footsteps of George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead, the first zombie flick to draw parallels between our endless hunger for consumerism and zombies’ ceaseless craving for brains.
The film certainly looks like it could be fun. Ahead of its release, you can check out the trailer below, and we’ll also leave you with the official synopsis. Trailer first…
And here’s that synopsis…
Overworked, underpaid and ready for the apocalypse. It’s the biggest sale of the year and this time round the shoppers are out of their mind and out for blood. Fighting for their lives a misfit group of employees including store manager Jonathan (Bruce Campbell, Evil Dead) find themselves fighting for survival against shoppers on a murderous rampage. Also starring Devon Sawa (Final Destination) and Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite), Black Friday was written by Andy Greskoviak and directed by Casey Tebo.
