‘Cooties’ Trailer: Playtime is Over

Posted in The Screening Room by - May 21, 2015

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Rainn Wilson until I recently watched Super and realized that he is so much more than just Dwight Schrute from The Office. That being said, Cooties looks like an interesting take on the zombie genre, and it has a stellar cast. In most zombie films, they stray away from showing violence towards children zombies, but Cooties doesn’t seem to pull any punches. 

From the twisted minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of “Glee”), COOTIES is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) as teachers who fight to survive the mayhem while hilariously bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives. COOTIES will be one of the debut releases of the newly-launched Lionsgate Premiere label, which will release the film on September 18th in select theaters and on demand.
