Just when I thought I’d seen it all, apparently one feline based film escaped me! Zombie Cats from Mars is getting a sequel, but I have to ask myself what was I on to miss the first film? Where the hell can I find this work? Okay, it’s on Amazon Prime … that’s good. When I have a weakness for camp and cheese, I’m sure this upcoming work will please me.
No mice were harmed in the making of this news announcement.
Instead, what got me scrambling out of my zone is news of this crowdfunding campaign which started May 14th, 2018.
From the press release:
This wacky out of this world feline misadventure is a throwback to those campy 80’s movies that we all loved. Filmmaker, Ryan Cloutier just cat-scratched the surface of making the first Zombie Cats from Mars into the ultimate B-Movie. The sequel is going to be on cat-nip x 1,000! You are not going to want to turn you head for a second… or Meeeow! You’re Dead
ZOMBIE CATS FROM MARS 2 takes place in 1957 and is centered around the Peterson family, their eccentric neighbor Agnes, physicist Grandpaw Bill, and a group of Soviet cosmonauts working under the control of the feline commander Cosmo. With Cosmo at the controls, a newly-launched satellite (Sputnik) beams a signal alerting Earth cats to attack. Agnes falls victim, and the Peterson family assume she’s been attacked by a large animal. When her bandages are removed, she’s revealed to have become a zombie and attacks matriarch Diane. As the Petersons’ world begins to collapse, it is up to young Armand Peterson and family friend Howie to go back in time to prevent the catastrophe that is unfolding.
THE PESTILENCE – Infected cats strike humans, which causes the humans to transform into Zombie-Cat People, who in turn attack other non-infected humans. If you shoot an infected cat, the cat will become a zombie and attack people unless it is anointed with holy water. If you shoot a Zombie-Cat Person, they will be forever dead, but their soul will be in a state of limbo. If you anoint a Zombie-Cat Person with holy water, they will be forever dead, but their souls will return to heaven.
