We've been keeping our eyes open for news on this film ever since we heard about it's production way back in June last year. A zombie comedy film set in the 50s with Carrie Ann-Moss, Peter Stormare and Billy Connolly? We're first in line dude...
Anyway, the Canadian production Fido has now been picked up by Lions Gate for international distribution, and an 'official' poster has been released for the film (see below).
Fido details the effects of Earth’s passage through a cloud of space dust, which results in the dead arising from their graves. In an attempt to quell the mayhem, a patented “domestication collar” is invented by a company called ZomCon, helping society integrate the zombie hordes, who quickly become “gardeners, milkmen, butlers and even pets.”
In the sleepy suburban town of Willard, a boy named Timmy Robinson befriends a ghoul (calling him Fido!) that his mom buys to help around the house — and then has to defend his new pal when the creature’s collar goes wonky and it begins reverting to its flesheating ways.
