We're all about at saturation level with zombies, right? Anytime Brad Pitt stars in a movie about anything that's a surefire sign the fad is in mid shark-jump. We've even had a zombie romance movie. But what about a movie that tackles the totally practical idea of "curing" zombies with medication? Leave it to the BBC to get all scientific up in our reanimated grills. They're releasing a three night event (didn't that used to be called a mini-series?) called In the Flesh, and it looks SO. FRIGGIN. GOOD. Put this trailer in your eyeballs:
- Complacency in a post-zombie-apocalypse deserted supermarket = you're dead.
- Riding a shopping cart in a post-zombie-apocalypse deserted supermarket = you deserve to be dead.
- Yep. Prom queen eating brains, lights out, and cue screaming death.
- WHOA. A flash back from a recovering zombie? This is NOT your father's Walking Dead!
- I know they'd eat my face, but these zombies have the dreamiest eyes.
- You know he's a doctor because he's balding and has a beard.
- Oh yeah. He's having vivid, heart attack inducing nightmares about eating people. He's TOTES ready to go home.
- A Partially Deceased Syndrome Sufferer. BRILLIANT!
- An institutionalized, seemingly experimental treatment to cure the undead? What could possibly go wrAAAAGHHH... A ZOMBIE'S EATING MY NECK... gurgle gurgle...
Just kidding. The zombie's eating my hand. Just the left one, though, so I can finish typing this before I sic him on a coworker instead. We're going to watch In the Flesh to figure out if this little guy is worth saving!
In the Flesh premieres tonight at 10 on BBC America.
