FIDO Zombies Hit SunDanceMeh
Andrew Currie’s Fido will screen in the Park City at Midnight program at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. I sure hope this film can get some decent distribution so we can all partake in its goodness.
Carrie-Anne Moss, Billy Connolly and Henry Czerny star in Fido, a biting satire set in a small town lost in the idyllic world of the ’50s. The sun shines every day, everybody knows his neighbor, and zombies serve as gardeners, milkmen and servants. Here lives a young boy (newcomer K’Sun Ray) and his best friend – the family zombie named Fido. All is well until Fido’s domestication collar goes on the fritz.
It’s a story that could rip your heart out – literally! With saturated color that recalls the Technicolor era, the film marks the second feature from Vancouver director Andrew Currie (Mile Zero). Script is by Currie, Robert Chomiak and Dennis Heaton. Producers are Blake Corbet and Mary Anne Waterhouse of Anagram Pictures.
