We had a RoMERO mission not too long ago. It was at an honest-to-God Clown College in Central Florida. The college was isolated enough that it was easy to contain, and there were no uninfected witnesses, so it was easy to contain. Only one Zed made it to local civilization, and people's natural Coulrophobia kept them away, avoid this crazy-seeming angry clown. When we got her out of there, the locals were relieved and
It certainly was odd retiring that many zeds, all in makeup. Made the whole thing surreal.
Tally this trip, 28 clown-zombies retired, 8 zombie staff members. Truth effectively suppressed in the middle of nowhere. No injuries to Romero team. Cover story back home: It was a weekend and I wasn't missed at my day job. You're welcome...
Anyway, I told you that story to tell you this one...
One of our members is an actor when not on Missions. B Movies. Really bad ones too. Shoestring budgets. A lot of the stuff he's involved in goes straight to DVD. Because of the nature of the work, a lot of the actors do set-up work like lights and sound and props. A lot of backstage people double as extras. So he does some writing and producing and stuff too.
This mission inspired him to write a screenplay. Regarding, you guessed it, Clown Zombies.
It was easy to get permission from higher ups in the RoMERO chain of command. Who is going to believe Zombies are real? Much less Zombies at a Clown College.
So he took his inspired from the Romero mission. He expects a release this spring, so watch for it at those odd independent venues that show bad, but so bad they are fun, indie films.
He told me a bit about it. In one scene there is a clown car where 50 zombies fall out of a sub-compact, the hero gets to say “they just keep coming!!!”
There are zombies dragging around unicycles with seltzer bottles in their hands. There is one part with zombies on a circus trapeze, going for a hand off, and the arms of one come right off, and he falls to the net.
Picture an Undead, in full clown regalia, including big floopy shoes with a horn it: "brrraaaaaaains ~honk~ BRAAAAAAINS! ~honk~"
Eventually the people of a nearby small town get terrorized until they organize and fight back. Their reistance is made all the easier because no one has any qualms about shooting a gat-dim CLOWN in the head.
Don LaFontaine voice: "In a WORLD where clowns really ARE out to get you... and eat your brains... Coming soon, to a theater no where near you."
Add it to your Netflix queue.
