Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures premiered a new webseries on FEARnet this week called "Zombie Roadkill. The six episode series stars "Sideways"' Thomas Haden Church, "The Ring"'s David Dorfman, and a cast of undead woodland creatures (I once had a squirrel chew his way through a wall into my attic, so I can relate). Before "Roadkill" began airing online, the cast came to Austin to show it to the Alamo Drafthouse faithful at Fantastic Fest 2010. Why? "I think everyone here's really happy and drunk," says series' director David Green.
Smart man. Here's our full report followed by the "Zombie Roadkill" trailer:

No joke: There is a dead squirrel outside my house right now. It's a black one, which is apparently unusual everywhere else but the most common variety here in Toronto, and it lies nestled against the right rear tire of my car though I didn't kill it. It's just there. Has been since last night. I'm hoping someone from the city will take it away during trash pickup tomorrow. If it hasn't come back as one of the rampaging undead by this point I figure I'm probably pretty safe in assuming that it won't at all but you never can tell ...
The point of this ramble? David Green's Zombie Roadkill - produced by Sam Raimi - arrived online today with Fearnet releasing the first two episodes with additional eps due to hit online one a day every day for the rest of the week. Nobody is safe. Nobody. Least »
What's the dirt on Zombie Roadkill? According to Todd Brown at Twitch, FEARnet's newest original is a "...hysterically funny tour through everything that makes splatter comedy fun..." Fred Topel at Screen Junkies says the series is "...done with a wink, with love for the genre," and Inside Pulse's Robert Saucedo says Zombie Roadkill is "...the most fun you're likely to have with undead rodents..." But you don't need to take their word for it; starting today you can witness this terrifyingly twisted tale about twisted tails for yourself. Brought to you by FEARnet, Sam Raimi & Rob Tapert's Ghost House Pictures and director David Green, Zombie Roadkill »
If you didn't fear rodents before, you may now.
Be prepared to laugh and then get startled by random zombie woodland creatures all hell-bent on payback. The series follows Dorfman and his crew of horny college co-eds as they take off for what was supposedly a fun weekend of camping at a National Park. That very quickly changes when the crew unwittingly run over a squirrel, who's not quite dead. Haden Church plays a park ranger who may be able to help get them out alive.

It is not a common thing for a festival to give an entire slot over to just a single half hour film. And it is not a common thing for a festival to bring in cast and crew and give that film the full on gala treatment. And yet that is exactly what Fantastic Fest has done with Zombie Roadkill. And they've done it for a very simple reason. Because David Green's Sam Raimi produced, Thomas Haden Church starring film - actually an edited together version of a web series due to premiere on FEARnet October 4th - is a hysterically funny tour through everything that makes splatter comedy fun distilled down into its simplest, most direct form without any of that boring stuff that people load into these things to pad the running time.
The setup is familiar. A quartet of college kids - plus one geeky younger »
Texas-born actor Thomas Haden Church returned to Austin this past March to lend his dry wit and charm as emcee of the Austin Film Society's annual Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards. Church first served as emcee in 2009, and personally I would love to see him become a long-running host. It's probably not that unlikely -- Church resides on his cattle ranch near Bandera, Texas.
I've been a fan of Church since his eccentric role in the 1990s television sitcom Wings, and enjoyed his conflicted portrayal of villain Flint Marko aka "Sandman" in Spider-Man 3. He recently appeared in the teen comedy Easy A, but can also be seen in Zombie Roadkill, a new FEARnet web series. The trailers and PSAs for the series are hysterical and had me jumping out of my seat. Check out my favorite PSA after the jump.
