Each week, there are ideas that come to Hollywood and we all just think, “Alright, they’ve reached the limit, it can’t go much farther than that,” and each week, we’re just surprised by what they can come up with. At this point, we think we’ve reached the limit, but we really haven’t. The newest piece of awesome to hit theaters? Osombie, and no this isn’t a weekday prank, this is real.
The plot, you ask? The film, “Follows Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado on a desperate rescue mission to save her crazy brother Derek, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama Bin Laden is still alive. In Afghanistan, Dusty falls in with a team of NATO Special Forces on a secret assignment. Turns out Derek is not so crazy after all, and Osama Bin Laden has returned from his watery grave and is making an army of zombie terrorists.”
Now, I don’t know about you guys, but American cinema just doesn’t get more inventively and sarcastically patriotically than that. The hilarious trailer, which starts off with: Viewer Discretion: scenes of violence and gore and muscular men with their shirts off. From there, the hilarious teaser keeps you laughing through your dropped jaw for a good minute and a half, and when it’s over, you have to ask yourself, is this real?
Well, I’m here to report that it is. Fortunately, this isn’t just another 30 second preview of a film like 2016 which is a mystery as to whether it’s an actual movie or not. Directed by “veteran editor” John Lyde, with a script by Kurt Hale, the movie has already been shot and edited, with the filmmakers now in post-production, laying a soundtrack over it, as well as tweaking a few other things.
Honestly, I can’t wait. Terrorists and zombies mixed together are about as great as Nazi zombies, but let’s hope it’s not as disappointing as Dead Snow.
