Zombie films

Aparently everyone is nice in Canada

eatingprivatebryanThere is a popular perception that Canada is a country entirely populated by non-threatening and affable people. According to a  new advertisement for the Toronto Film Fest, even the country’s zombies are friendly.

The spot features “Antoine Zombé,” a zombie whose dream of becoming an actor was initially hampered by his inborn politeness.  Even when auditioning for parts in zombie movies, the hapless Antoine is passed over. “Less polite Canadian, more zombie!” he’s told.

Digging deep, he taps into his inner-zombieness and goes on to a stellar career in such films as “Rest in Pieces,” “Raging Zombie” and “Eating Private Bryan.”
