Canadian zombie movies aren’t exactly a widely-seen subgenre, but considering one such title–13 Eerie–is set to have Katharine Isabelle star, well, it’s a reason to take this whole genre (not to mention this particular title) much more seriously.
13 Eerie follows six college students who’ve set out for a remote island during a field project. But while the island may be remote, it’s not uninhabited. Turns out it was also the home of some highly illegal biological testing featuring a variety of criminals which were tested and left for dead. But they didn’t die…per se.
Word is that this will be a whole different kind of zombie from the earlier versions, which certainly does have my interest as I hadn’t thought there were that many different kinds left. They’ve only just started shooting, so it will likely be a while before we see how it turns out, but still. I’m hopeful this will turn out well, and so should you be.
