Movie Monday: Extinction Trailer

It’s been a while since a terrifying zombie movie has been released.

Of the big-budget popular zombie movies to be released in the last several years, the three that come to mind are

  1. Zombieland, which was funny
  2. World War Z, which was action-packed but not terribly scary, and
  3. Warm Bodies, which was a sweet and sappy teenage love story.

However, today I read an article on blastr that got me so excited: Lost’s Matthew Fox battles snow zombies in first trailer for sci-fi flick Extinction.

We’ve been waiting for word of this intense post-apocalyptic sci-fi film since it began filming in Budapest back in 2014, and now it’s finally secured a distributor and official U.S. release date.

My excitement only grew when I read the synopsis:

For nine years, Patrick (Matthew Fox), Jack (Jeffrey Donovan) and his daughter Lu (Quinn McColgan) have outlasted the zombie apocalypse by shutting themselves off in the snowbound town of Harmony.  The monsters have seemingly disappeared, with no sign of other survivors, but the constant fear of the unknown is starting to take a toll on this makeshift family.  When Patrick goes scavenging for food, he discovers the undead have returned and evolved into something terrifying, beyond imagination. Will the last breath of the human race survive a second zombie apocalypse?

My heart leaped with joy (and my skin prickled with goosebumps) when I watched the trailer:


The wait for a terrifying looking zombie movie is over! Anxiously anticipating this one now. What about you?
