Trailer Tuesday: Humans vs. Zombies (The Movie!)

What began as a form of tag played on college campuses has now become a movie: Humans vs. Zombies!

Students on summer break are exposed to a deadly virus, a neuroinvasive organism that is spread rapidly through direct human contact. The Infected are enslaved by the invading “swarm” intelligence and driven by an insatiable appetite to consume human flesh. Returning home, the students spread the infection to their fellow classmates and other unsuspecting townspeople. One by one, more students fall victim to the plague, triggering an epidemic that spawns a horde of ravenous zombies.
I like how the film acknowledges its roots in a college version of tag by centering the action on students and the concept of transmission through direct contact. The overbearing and overtly macho voice over I could do without, but I'm certainly interested to see the final product.
