COOTIES (2014) - Zombie horror/comedy - Elijah Wood, Alison Pill, Dwight Schrute


Cooties follows a struggling writer/substitute teacher whose first day at an elementary school sees him dealing with a virus that turns the kids into mindless killing cannibals. The teacher bands with the survivors — played by Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer and Leigh Whannell, among others — to figure out an escape from the school.



Just got bought at Sundance by Lionsgate (first deal of the festival that I know of).

The cast and plot isn't enough to warrant a thread?

Fuck you.

From the look of things, this thread is a must-see. Be back in a week...

Better go alert the folks in the Avengers 2 and new Star Wars movie threads that there isn't shit to talk about yet because there's no trailer as well.

Since when does a thread about an upcoming movie require a trailer?

I'm not a big fan of zombie comedies. Shaun of the Dead was good but I have yet to see another that was decent.

I may check this out because I like the cast. Although I'm not crazy about Jack McBrayer. He always plays the same exact character.

It's directed by Honest. That alone gets me in the theater.

Just saw the trailer and I'm in.

Leigh Wannell is on a role.

It looks like Dawn of the Dead in an elementary school.

Seen Cooties trailer last year. Not surprised this is taking so long since Lionsgate have a stupid habit of sitting on movie acquisitions too long before release. I guess the attempt is to build hype.

After watching trailer, I'm totally in! Zombie kids isn't something the zombie genre is typical of.

This is coming out through Lionsgate's Digital platform, so I figure it'll be available via streaming day and date like Maggie was.

Lol. I totally forgot about that exchange up top. I saw this preview a while back. Looks great.

Hopefully what they do right (like was done in Zombieland) is treat the zombies as a serious threat. The survivors can be goofy, but if the zombies are played for intentional laughs it hurts it overall.

I'm in. This thread FINALLY pays off! Haha.

Just watched it and thought it was a nice little compact time waster. Nothing great but did have some nice kills and a couple of great lines.

My favorite of them was: "I always wanted to have sex with a prostitute who was non-white."

Also "Nap time, motherfuckers."

The film runs 85 mins., so it's easy to get through.

I liked the first half, second half was okay. It felt like the pilot for a TV series.

I made it ~35 minutes and had to shut it off.

I watched this last month and I liked it. It wasn't extremely great, but the cast made it entertaining.
