Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.05.18] Canada zombies drama

It seems like Netflix's commitment to spending $500 million in Canadian content over the next five years is already starting to pay off for Canadian films.

The streaming giant has announced that they have acquired the award-winning French Canadian horror movie The Ravenous (Les Affames in French) which premiered at TIFF last year, where it won Best Canadian Feature, before making a successful festival run.

Written and directed by Robin Aubert, the movie unfolds in a remote village in upstate Quebec where a portion of the residents are turning into zombies. The remaining survivors take shelter in the nearby woods searching for other uninfected. The movie stars Marc-Andre Grondin, Monia Chokri and Charlotte St-Martin.

Yes, it's another zombie movie but from the trailer, this one also looks like it has some interesting mythology at play; it's the only way to explain the weird tower of crap in the middle of a field with a bunch of zombies just staring at it.

The Ravenous will land on Netflix on March 2, with the exceptions of Canada, Latin America and Eastern Europe - essentially: everywhere it has a theatrical distribution deal.

Recommended Release: Pontypool
