Saturday 7th June 2008
Welcome to Willard, a small town lost in the idyllic world of the '50s, where the sun shines every day, everybody knows their neighbour and rotting zombies deliver the mail. Funny, frightening and just a little bit twisted, the multi award winning Fido is now released on DVD by Entertainment In Video, to rent on 9th June and to buy on 23rd June 2008.
A boy-and-his-dog movie for grown ups, Fido boasts a great ensemble cast including Carrie-Anne Moss (Disturbia, The Matrix trilogy), legendary stand up Billy Connolly (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events), Dylan Baker (Spider-Man 3) and Tim Blake Nelson (Meet the Fockers).
Years ago, the earth passed through a cloud of space dust, causing the dead to rise with a craving for human flesh. A war began, pitting the living against the dead. In the ensuing revolution, the corporation ZomCon was created and succeeded in defeating the legions of undead. They domesticated them, making them into industrial workers and servants.
ZomCon would like the people of Willard to believe they have everything under control... but do they? At least one person doesn't think so. ZomCon's head of security has moved in across the street from eleven-year-old Timmy Robinson (K'Sun Ray), who is already a little suspicious of this newly created world.
Timmy's mother (Moss) however refuses to be the only housewife on the block who doesn't have a zombie as a servant. When she brings a six-foot tall model home, Timmy discovers in him a new best friend whom he immediately names Fido (Connolly).
Even though Dad (Baker) has a bad case of zombie-phobia - he has never recovered from having killed his own zombie father - Timmy is determined to keep Fido, even if he does have a nasty habit of eating the neighbours.
Sometimes, it takes a dead man to teach us all what it means to be alive...
