From the minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of Glee), Cooties is a -comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. The film will have its Canadian premiere at 10:00 P.M. this Friday at the Fantasia International Film Festival. A red band clip has been released today, given us an early taste at the ruthless killer kids. Unfortunately, the one in the clip gets locked up with a lady, but who the hell is she? Apparently, the misfit teachers don’t know either.
Cooties stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (The Office), and Alison Pill (The Newsroom) as teachers who fight to survive the mayhem while hilariously bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives. It’s scheduled to come out on VOD and in select theaters on September 18, 2015 from the newly-launched Lionsgate Premiere label.
Make sure you catch it at Fantasia!
