Zombie Criminals Attack in 13 EERIE

13 Eerie, directed by Lowell Dean, is an upcoming zombie film shot in Saskatchewan. It stars horror-regular Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps).
Six ambitious forensic undergrads are pitted against one another on a scientific expedition to a remote island, vying to win an esteemed trainee position with the FBI. Unbeknownst to everyone, the site was formally used as an illegal biological testing ground for life-term criminals who were left for dead. Even before the undergrads have started their experiments, a group of hungry zombie convicts start hunting them down. What started as a fight for an esteemed career in the FBI is now a fight for their very lives

13 Eerie looks pretty cheesy, but I love me some cheesy Canadian horror. Fans of Canadian horror will find it hard not recognize several of the cast members.

The lovely Katharine Isabelle is well known as Ginger from Ginger Snaps, and you might notice actor Brendan Fehr from Final Destination. Also among the cast is Brendan Fletcher from Freddy vs. Jason and Jesse Moss, who put the evil in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Incidentally, Isabelle and Fletcher both starred in Freddy vs. Jason together while Isabelle and Moss both starred in Gingersnaps. Fletcher didn't star in Gingersnaps, but joined Isabelle for its two sequels. Isabelle and Fletcher never appeared in the Final Destination franchise either, but Fehr was in the first while Moss had a role in Final Destination 3.

As far as horror films shot in Canada goes, it looks like everyone has worked with everyone else.
