Zombies man, they suck…and also if you’ve been following this page you know I’m totally terrified of them…whatever, they’re scary, they’re dead and hungry and you can’t reason with their brain dead selves or negotiate and send them to the neighbors instead. Vampires and werewolves are cool (and can be reasoned with) but there ain’t nothing cool or sexy about being one of the walking dead. But kid zombies…fuck that’s crazy…cause, you know, most people would have issues clocking kids with a shovel, even if they are flesh eating monsters. I have three little rugrats at home, each a chicken nugget loving zombie-in-waiting, and I for one would be hesitant to knock them on their little butts in a zombie apocalypse.
As a parent, or even just as an adult in general, the idea of flesh eating, bloodthirsty children is fucking terrifying. Shit, I mean my kids are hard to wrangle when they’re not undead killers, so if the events in Cooties were ever to come to pass, I’d be doomed…just fucking doomed.
In case you’re wondering, Cooties is set in a small elementary school and is about a zombie-like virus outbreak contracted through cafeteria chicken nuggets (natch) and localized to humans who have yet to go through puberty…fucking zombie kids. As the infection spreads from child to child, a rag tag group of teachers must band together and fight their way out if they are to have any hope of surviving. Sounds like fun to me, and the trailer looks about as good as they get, that plus a killer cast (Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Leigh Whannell who also co-wrote and Jack McBrayer to name a few) makes Cooties seem like a surefire awesome time will be had by all. But don’t take my word for it, have a look at the first trailer…
Doesn’t that look awesome? Lemme know what you thought of the Cooties trailer horror fans, and as always make with the virtual gropes and click that Like button 😉
