I think we’re at a point in cinema when the only thing worse than porn spoofs of films are the legitimate spoofs of films. Especially when it comes to horror parodies, which are seemingly the only ones still getting made. And now we’ve got what could potentially be the worst of the worst coming, as production company MNDFCK has recently cast Walking with the Dead, a send-up of — you guessed it — AMC’s The Walking Dead. I mean, it’ll probably still be better than The Walking Dead during its worst moments. Really, it sounds like it’ll be taking on all forms of zombie-related fiction, but I guess it’s smart to stick with what’s current as far as promoting this thing goes. Plus, adding hottie actress Jacqui Holland (My Best Friend’s Girl) can’t hurt.
Here’s how this zombified story will unfold: a group of survivors come together a month after the zombie apocalypse begins, and each is named after their favorite cities — Chicago, Green Bay, Brooklyn, and Harlem. (Obvious ties to Zombieland there.) One of them is a Sheriff who’s just awakened from a coma, his small-business owner 10-year-old son, and a zombie named Romeo who uses a lot of voiceover in his quest to get the others to realize he’s not really dead, just slow. The fearsome foursome are forced to vacate their mini-mall camp headquarters in order to seek out a more long-term safe zone. So it’s obvious Dawn of the Dead and Warm Bodies will also get skewered.
