The Loneliest Boy in the World trailer: Max Harwood, Ashley Benson star in zombie horror comedy

Well Go USA Entertainment will be giving the zombie horror comedy The Loneliest Boy in the World a limited theatrical release on October 14th, and in anticipation of that date a trailer for the film has arrived online. You can check it out in the embed above.

Directed by Martin Owen (Let’s Be Evil) from a screenplay by Piers Ashworth (St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold), The Loneliest Boy in the World is described as being “a satire and a celebration of family values, of the imagery of horror films, of suburban life, of the American Dream and of the ultimate taboo; death.” The film is

billed as a modern fairytale—except with zombies. When the sheltered and unsocialized Oliver (Harwood) is tasked with making new friends after the sudden and devastating death of his mother, he decides that digging a few up (literally) might be his best bet. However, when he awakens the morning after his excavating escapades, he discovers that his newly acquired friends have mysteriously come to life overnight, launching them all into a series of misadventures as they try to keep their secret safe from neighbors, classmates, and social workers alike.

Max Harwood (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) and Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars) star alongside Hero Fiennes Tiffin (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), Susan Wokoma (Enola Holmes), Evan Ross (Star), Tallulah Haddon (The Last Duel), Hammed Animashaun (The Wheel of Time), Jacob Sartorius (Life of Jacob), newcomer Zenobia Williams, Sam Coleman (Leatherface), Mitchell Zhangazha (Save the Cinema), Nicola Roberts (St. Trinian’s), Alex Murphy (The Young Offenders), Carol Anne Watts (Monstrous), and Ben Miller (Bridgerton).
