Inspiration can come from anywhere, and I’d like to think that the folks behind this upcoming horror comedy heard some kids exclaiming “ewwww cooties!” and it sparked the idea for a movie. Or not. Either way, a movie called “Cooties” is coming and the first trailer has dropped.
Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Leigh Whannell, Nasim Pedrad, Ian Brennan and Jorgé Garcia star in the movie directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion and co-written by Leigh Whannell (the “Saw” franchise). It follows a cafeteria school virus which turns elementary schoolers into zombies —their teachers have to band together to save the day. If it sounds ridiculous, that’s probably the point.
“Cooties” hits VOD and opens in limited release on September 18th.
