Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson and Alison Pill are fighting back with the infectious new teaser poster from Lionsgate Premiere’s upcoming horror comedy, ‘Cooties,’ courtesy of IMDb. The film, which opened the Stanley Film Festival last night, follows a group of misfit teachers who must defend themselves against a zombie epidemic that has risen amongst their elementary school students.
The horror comedy, which will be one of the debut releases of the newly-launched Lionsgate Premiere label, will be released in select theaters and on VOD on September 18. The horror comedy was written by Leigh Whannell (the co-creator of ‘Saw’ and ‘Insidious’) and Ian Brennan (the co-creator of ‘Glee’), and directed by first-time feature film helmers, Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion. The movie also stars Jack McBrayer, Whannell, Nasim Pedrad, Brennan and Jorgé Garcia.
‘Cooties’ follow a cafeteria food virus that turns elementary school children into killer zombies. As a result, the group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Wood, Wilson and Pill as the teachers who lead the fight to survive the mayhem, while bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives.
