Broadway Zombies

My Fair ZombieWhat do contemporary zombies movies have in common with karaoke singers and rap music? Answer: Everybody’s doing it. Except me. You couldn’t pay me to do any of the above while sober. And because everybody’s a rapper and/or singing poorly in public, it should come as no surprise that there’s YET ANOTHER undead movie on the horizon.

My Fair ZombieMy Fair Zombie is a tongue-in-cheek spin on the 1956 hit Broadway play (and 1964 movie) My Fair Lady. I never saw the play or movie; I read a description and nowhere did it have nuclear explosions, underwater car chase scenes or a misunderstood creature from beyond. It has a professor of phonetics who makes a bet he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl to pass for a duchess at an ambassador’s garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility, the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech. (I copied that part off the world wide web.) So yeah – couldn’t pay me to see it sober.

My Fair ZombieMy Fair Zombie – a horror comedy – has another professor of phonetics who attempts to teach a zombie woman to be a proper English Lady. Sounds like a one punch line joke, but hey, what horror comedy isn’t? Being filmed in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (geez, pick a lane and drive in it), the filmmakers are asking for your help to complete their rap album, uh, zombie movie. Their goal is to raise $5,000 on Indiegogo.com. As of this writing, they’ve had donations that take care of $1,104 of their targeted budget. If you’re a fan of zombies and impeccable speech, click HERE to give ’em a financial hand. (You only have until Friday, March 9, 11:59PM PST to do it.)

I’d throw in a few pocket coupons except I have a strict “ain’t gonna happen” rule about financing zombie movies, buying rap albums or tipping karaoke singers. I would, however, pay to see someone to do all of the above. Just once, though.

  1. Really nice to see zombies take on Broadway. Now they can finally prove to themUndead-ists that despite the decay and crazing for meat, they’re capable of living in fine society.

    Dude, I need help spreading the word of my indiegogo campaign. I’m trying to raise funds for another season of Zombie Hunter. If you know of anyone that might be interested in helping, don’t hesitate to spread the link.
