The Zombie Plan for Middle East Peace

The logical extreme of just about everything in the world

Print Email

In a few days time, what’s being heralded as one of the first Israeli action horror movies (other than this clip of Ehud Barak singing at a military graduation) will be screening at a film festival in Israel (h/t Tal Kra Oz). The film Cannon Fodder marries two important geo-political staples: the enmity between Israel and Hezbollah and the enmity between mankind and zombies.

The result: blood, gore, some questionable dialogue, and an unlikely alliance between the IDF and Hezbollah as they..try to fend off a zombie invasion. (I think,) Here’s the trailer.

Do not watch if you’re skittish. And be on the lookout for Liron Levo, who’s been in a slew of good movies in recent years.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

LOL, you really dig up some classics! Maybe they should call it “Canaan Fodder”.

in messianic times the dead are raised from their graves to come to Hashem. perhaps they are good zombies?

Lol no plans are going to work there.

Lillian_SeizeTheLatte says:

THIS. It might be the best combination of Middle Eastern politics and zombies since, well, ever. (And it’s certainly better than Oszombie.)

Dana says:

Are you joking??

Shimon says:

Great idea – but it looks cripplingly low budget even from the trailer. Apparently the Israel-related scenes may be the only reason to watch the new blockbuster World War Z.
