With leading the charge, followers like Z Nation and World War Z are pushing past the initial outbreak and survival aspect of the apocalypse tale. Now we’re being inundated with the possibility of a cure. I suppose we saw some of this theme in Day of the Dead, but never has it been so contagious and widespread. Personally, I think the doomed-fate of humanity, with the possibility of a few survivors, makes for a better story.
Nonetheless, Midnight Releasing is releasing Sick, which sounds an awful lot like a Night of the Living Dead retelling… not that there’s anything wrong with that. Check the movie’s description below and catch the trailer in the player above. When you’re all done, let us know what you think in our comments section below.
Oh, and before I forget, Sick stars legendary scream queen, Debbie Rochon (Tromio and Juliet).
Two years after the infection began, billions have died. Governments have collapsed and the human race is on the brink of extinction. Dr. Leigh Rozetta is a young, maverick scientist, who’s been living in a secret underground government facility since the outbreak began. After constant failed attempts to find a cure, Leigh sneaks away to return to her parent’s house. On her way she crosses paths with Seph and Mckay, two militant survivalists, who only just barely escaped an attack from a group of infected. With nightfall close at hand, the three of them know they need to seek shelter, as the SICK are more active in the dark. Boarding themselves up in Leigh’s parents house, the plan is simple: survive the night. But with the SICK surrounding the house and their own tensions through the roof, they’ll be lucky if anyone makes it out alive.
