An interesting Kickstarter project, this story is seen through the eyes of Lorna Thompson (Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones), a lonely suburban schoolgirl, who joins a mutant gang of teenagers on a quest to discover their true identities.
They uncover a global conspiracy, which they must find the strength to fight before civilisation is destroyed. Battling this conspiracy won’t be easy, as they find out that the “1%” that control the finances and political offices around the world are actually aliens. These aliens arrived 34 years ago and have had plenty of time to integrate themselves, disguised as humans, into our world.
This film is epic and deals with themes of universal appeal, such as identity and self-discovery (who we are and how we fit into the world), loyalty, trust and abuse of power.
It seems the weather’s getting worse each Halloween, although it’s hard to complain about the weather while Hurricane Sandy’s causing death and destruction. Our thoughts go out to all those who have lost loved ones, friends, family or their homes.
This year we had about a foot of snow a couple of weeks prior to Halloween, which definitely put a dent in our prep work. Unfortunately, the snow didn’t melt in time, either, and Oct 31 was cold (about -12C) and foggy.
It didn’t seem to put much of a damper on the kids’ excitement though, we still had a good strong turnout of princesses in winter jackets, goblins in winter jackets and other assorted fiends and critters. All in winter jackets.
If the lack of hockey has got you down or you’re getting tired of boring football or baseball there’s always MMA or…. take part yourself in the 2012 Zombie Wars!
It’s 2012 and the world is in chaos since the spread of the undead infection. Hordes of undead have engulfed the planet, eliminating most of the human race.
Over a heavily infected area of western Canada, a biplane carrying the only known cure for the infection crashed landed on a small island.
The best remaining humans have been gathered to brave the infested island to save humanity from annihilation. They are called The Hunters, and are humanity’s only hope for survival.
The Hunters’ mission is to recover all the lost cure scattered across the island within a critical time frame. Should they be overrun, the hope of saving humanity from annihilation will be lost and the Zombie’s will have taken over the world.
Participants can choose to be either on the Hunters team or the Zombies team.
The event takes place Saturday, August 11, 2012.
