Attack of the Southern Fried Zombies described as Zombieland meets Shaun of the Dead. The trailer looks like a great time. The special effects look amazing. There looks to be a great deal of gore in it, which is a good thing. What is a zombie flick with no gore?
The zombie makeup effects have quality and steer from being mediocre. I like how the background score is a dramatic theatrical score instead of actual music. This intensified the scare factor of trailer scenes for me.
Attack of the Southern Fried Zombies said to include, not only zombies, but carnival mayhem, mad scientists, and Southern Rock. I wonder if the zombies are “fried”. Pun intended. This film looks to be a fun time.
