I’ve always had a major love for zombies. Like most fans of the zombie genre, I’ve been eagerly awaiting any news of the upcoming feature film adaptation of Max Brook’s NY Times Best Seller, World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War. Unfortunately, little information has been released and I believe they’re still hashing out the script.
To temporarily satisfy the hunger for all-things undead, director/writer David Morley’s debut film Mutants was recently released in France and will surely make it’s way here soon in a theater or, more likely, on DVD. Mutants follows Sonia, an EMT worker secluded in an abandoned French hospital desperately trying to save her infected boyfriend from mutation. Meanwhile outside the hospital, the entire country has become overrun by the walking dead. Helene de Fougerolles and Francis Renaud star as the ill-fated couple.
Evidently, this pic is very gruesome from beginning to end and delivers the edge of your seat tension that makes watching a zombie flick so damn fun. If I’m in France and a zombie outbreak occurs, I’m heading somewhere safe where there are no other humans around to infect and or eat me. That’s right, I’m going to EuroDisney.
Watch the trailer (unfortunatly, in French with no subtitles) after the jump.
