Oh, yah. You heard right. The man that virtually started rock n' roll has taken it upon himself to help rid the world of the walking dead; and to this I say SWEET!
What I'm talking about is the film BUDDY HOLLY vs THE LIVING DEAD, which is actually about rocker Holly and a group of bopping teens who have to fight against the living dead. In actuality it's about conformity, fanaticism, idolization and the evil descent of wholesomeness; but I prefer to simply think about some kooky zombies getting their heads bashed in by a 55 Fender Stratocaster.
The film will be directed by Justin Cash Kirkpatrick and contains a bevy of 50's stereotypes. We've got Bobby, a rebel wrapped in leather and blue jeans, the very definition of cool. Rosie, she’s Bobby’s girl, tough as nails but sweet as cotton candy. Jimmy, a closet bookworm just trying to fit in and the new guy in town. And Peggy Sue, cuter than a pail full of kittens, she's along for the ride and in over her head. And of course a young , unknown rocker by the name of Holly. The group attends a show of Holly's when on the outskirts of town a group of corpses re-animate because of government experimentation and have to be brought to justice by the sexually oppressed teens.
I really love this idea. I'm super excited and would love to see a slew of horror films containing classic rock icons fighting numerous monsters. We've had Elvis vs a mummy in BUBBA HO-TEP, now Holly vs some zombies. How about Chuck Berry vs Frankenstein and Jimmy Hendrix against Godzilla. Seriously! Is someone writing this down, this is good stuff!
