Zombie Roadkill sounds like the title of a movie I would have come up with when I was 15-years old. Better yet, the plot for it sounds like something I also would have dreamed up when I was a gore-loving teen. And I mean both those things as total compliments. From Ain't It Cool News:

"Academy-Award nominated actor Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3, Sideways, Wings) co-stars as a tough as nails Park Ranger who teams with an unsuspecting teenager, played by David Dorfman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Ring films), to escape a cursed stretch of highway that resurrects roadkill in the form flesh eating zombie animals. This new breed of terror is not just playing dead.

Zombie Roadkill centers around a group of college kids as they are driving on an unfamiliar road. Everything seems fit for a road trip to the lake but, when the group accidentally runs over an unsuspecting squirrel, they quickly realize there will be a price to pay. The cursed road brings the zombie squirrel back."

Okay, not only is "tough as nails Park Ranger" a great character description, but it's perfectly fitting for Haden Church, as you can see from trailer over at AICN. The Ghost House Pictures-produced series won't kick off over at FEARNet until October 4th, but apparently the series will be a part of Fantastic Fest, so if you attend (and you should!) you'll be able to catch it early and on the big screen.
