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.

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

brenrod says:

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.

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.
