Meagan Navarro writes that it wields "its satire in an engaging way that keeps this zombie comedy moving along at a quick and entertaining pace." Starring Iani Bédard, Roy Dupuis, Marianne Fortier, Anne-Élisabeth Bossé, & Claudia Ferri. Some zombie fun from Canada.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Julien Knafo's Brain Freeze, direct from YouTube:
When an exclusive golf club uses modified fertilizer to keep their courses green all year, they unwittingly release a plague on their affluent community. Contaminating the water supply, the fertilizer turns people into a ravenous clan of emerald-eyed zombies. Can a teen & his baby sister get off the quarantined island before turning into grass? Brain Freeze is both written & directed by Quebecois filmmaker Julien Knafo, making his feature directorial debut after co-directing the film Lucidité Passagère previously, as well as a few shorts; he also works as a composer. This initially premiered at the 2021 Fantasia Film Festival earlier this year, and also played at Cinéfest Sudbury. Knafo's Brain Freeze is streaming on Cinedigm's Screambox streaming service run by Bloody Disgusting. It's available to watch today! Who wants to kill some zombies?
