Some movies just look like fun, and “Infestation” looks like it could be a ball from beginning to end. Sure, it looks like a pretty standard “creatures run amok” movie, with giant insects running around eating, snatching up, and jumping people all over the place, including the work place. But let’s face it, everybody knows their work place needs a good old fashion house cleaning. By giant man-eating bugs. Best of all, it looks like the filmmakers had an actual budget to work with, which is always a good thing. Check out the trailer and poster for Kyle Rankin’s “Infestation” below.
From the official site, where you can also download the script if you’re into that whole reading the movie thing:
Our hero, Cooper, awakes to find himself nauseous, weak and covered in webbing, hanging from the ceiling of an office where, just minutes ago, he started his new job. As he struggles out of his slimy prison he comes face to face with his opponent – a grotesque, powerful and very angry bug. All 3 ft of it.
And so begins a hideous, nail-biting, comedic, all-action adventure to find a safe haven while constantly outwitting an infestation of monstrous proportions. As Cooper embarks on his journey, he befriends a ragtag group of survivors including Sara, a feisty attractive female. Although the situation is dire, Cooper can’t help himself from trying to solve his dating problem while trying to save his life.
Will they make it to safety before they are picked off one by one? And what other surprises are in store for our group of unlikely heroes?
