Despite the silly title, director Brian T. Jaynes’ “Humans Versus Zombies” actually looks like a dead-serious zombie movie. (See what I did there?) Which is a great thing. As much as I dig the legion of “Shaun of the Dead” copycats out there, especially the low-budget variety, it’s always nice to dip back into some serious zombie post-apocalyptic mayhem just to refresh the ol zombie love. Check out two teaser trailers (a third is forthcoming) along with a poster that probably doesn’t do the movie justice. Apparently the whole thing started as a college game before they decided to make a movie out of it. Or maybe that website is just a viral promotional thing. Who knows nowadays with these crazy kids and their crazy online shenanigans. Get off my lawn! Ahem.
Students on summer break are exposed to a deadly virus, a neuroinvasive organism that is spread rapidly through direct human contact. The infected are enslaved by the invading “swarm” intelligence and driven by an insatiable appetite to consume human flesh. Returning home, the students spread the infection to their fellow classmates and other unsuspecting townspeople. One by one, more students fall victim to the plague, triggering an epidemic that spawns a horde of ravenous zombies.
The zombie horde grows and spreads quickly. Amidst the chaos a campus security guard, obsessed with conspiracy theories, leads a group of students to safety as they and a small band of uninfected townspeople set out to find other human survivors in an attempt to discover the source of the “zombie” virus and save the world.
