FROM A seemingly harmless mosquito bite, a groom-to-be fights his fate turning into a zombie in the outrageous comedy “A Little Bit Zombie” starring Kristopher Turner as Steve, Crystal Lowe, Shawn Roberts, Kristen Hager and multi-talented actor Stephen McHattie.
“A Little Bit Zombie” had recently been awarded as Best Feature Film in several film festivals in the U.S., Brazil and Canada. The movie’s misadventures start when Steve (Turner), a mild mannered HR manager becomes infected with a zombie virus at his bachelor party. Unknown to Steve, his infection came from the farther part of the secluded forest where he’s celebrating and where undead exterminator “Shotgun” Max (McHattie) and his bookish assistant, Penelope, are snuffing out a zombie outbreak at the same time. Max relishes killing zombies, as Penelope squeamishly uses the ancient Orb of Conthulezbarr, a crystal sphere filled with blue energy, to locate the undead. During the battle, a mosquito bites one of the zombies and becomes infected. It escapes the bloodbath and flies out onto the open road where … splat … it is crushed on Steve’s car windshield.
Steve is engaged to Tina (Lowe), the girl of his dreams. Tina has been talking about her wedding day since she was 10 years old and there is determined her special day will be perfect. They have invited Steve’s sister, Sarah, and her husband, Craig, up to a cottage for a weekend of wedding preparations and fun, in that order. Once the foursome arrives at the cottage, the undead mosquito comes back to life and bites Steve. After a ridiculous amount of effort, Steve kills the mosquito with his shoe, creating a bloody mess. That night, Steve has a “brainy” nightmare, where he ends up sucking his sister’s brains out of her head with a straw.
The next morning, Steve begins to experience the symptoms of being semi-undead. He goes for a run, but can’t find his pulse. His senses are heightened. He can’t stomach normal food. He wants brains. Steve tries to keep this from Tina, Craig and Sarah, as he scurries about chasing woodland creatures for their brains. But when pressed to tell the truth, Tina doesn’t believe Steve’s claim that he has become partially undead, and is not going to let him ruin the day she has been waiting for her entire life, because of “cold feet”. Tina, being the bridezilla that she is, will do anything to make sure the wedding takes place, even when her husband-to-be is a little bit zombie, even if it means going to the butcher shop to get and feed Steve some brains.
“A Little Bit Zombie” opens February 26 in cinemas from CrystalSky Multimedia.
