Frightfest 2014 Preview: I Survived A Zombie Holocaust Simon Fitzjohn July 11, 2014 Film4 Frightfest 3758 New Zealand horror heads to Frightfest with this tongue-in-cheek splatter flick that hopefully will continue the gory path marched by the likes of Peter Jackson’s Braindead (or the more recent Black Sheep). The flick takes us to the set of a zombie film entitled ‘Tonight They Come’, with the crew of the low-budget horror film out on location in the wilds down under. Wouldn’t you know though, something dodgy enters the local water supply and suddenly the zombie extras develop a genuine taste for human flesh, with severed limbs aplenty. Enter wannabe screenwriter (and geek) Wesley Pennington to save the day – if he can tear himself away from his lusting for set caterer Susan that is. Harley Neville takes on the role of Wesley, while the cast is rounded out by the likes of Jocelyn Christian, Ben Baker and Mike Edward. Up-and-coming director Guy Pigden takes the reins, with the trailer offering a solid mix of gore and laughs suggesting something (hopefully) in the vein of one of my favourite flicks, Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things. I Survived A Zombie Holocaust will play London’s Frightfest on Monday, August 25.
