“Greatest deed Luke Skywalker ever did was take down the Death Star, right? As far as I’m concerned, that’s what everybody needs. You need that one bad-ass thing that lets you live on forever, you know.”
Cocksure Entertainment has released the teaser poster and trailer for Night of the Living Deb. Directed by Kyle Rankin (Infestation), this looks like a fun indie horror comedy.
Maria Thayer (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Michael Cassidy (The O.C.), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks) and Chris Marquette (Freddy vs. Jason) star.
After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but she can’t remember much of what got her there. Pretty boy Ryan only knows it was a mistake and ushers her out the door… into a full-scale zombie apocalypse. Now, a walk of shame becomes a fight for survival as the mismatched pair discovers that the only thing scarier than trusting someone with your life… is trusting them with your heart.
Fanboys is my favorite movie…… I know a lot of people must say this, but it was an extremely underrated movie, only being shown at movie festivals and in smaller venues at first. Fanboys finally sparked some interest and I found out that it was finally coming to a theater near where I live. I saw it back in Feb. 09 and I loved it. It was in one of those wicked small theaters that holds like 90 or so people, and there were literaly 4 people there.
I loved it so much that I have it on DVD, iTunes, etc. and watch it on a regular basis. I want everyone out there who loves this movie to know that I love this movie for what it truly is.. It’s a roadtrip comedy 3 Star Wars/Comic die-hards who cross paths with one of their old friends after a few years, and have a hard time reconnecting because he has gone on to be a business man, where as the other 3 guys have been living life with each other, working at a comic book store. One of the 3 guys, Linus, is dying of cancer, and the other 2 finally decide its best to tell their old friend this, so in any hope they can get together and work things out before he’s gone.
Back in grade school, all 4 of them as friends mapped out a mission in which they’d travel from their hometown in Ohio to Lucas Ranch in California to steal a viewing of Episode I before it comes out. Because unfortunately, odds are Linus will not be alive long enough to view it at its release date. So Botler, the lost friend, finally decides to come out of his shell and bring up this plan again to the guys.
The roadtrip is full of cameos, trekkie enemies, fanboy allies, and a lot of fun along the way. Throughout the trip the guys are trying to make Botler realize that, when it all comes down to it, life’s only about having fun and doing what you believe in.
Towards the end of the movie there’s a scene at a campsite that the guys are staying at, and Linus comes up to Botler, who is finally drawing comics, like he had always wanted to go pro at. Botler then explains that he’s sorry for the past 3 years, and wished he could change it all around. Linus says he wouldn’t have wanted him to, stating you “Gotta keep the flaws….Crappy effects, real puppets. It’s what makes it so good." It’s such a touching and emotional scene.
At the end of the movie, it shows the other 3 guys (after Linus passes away) the premier night of Episode 1. They all toast to Linus as the movie starts, and the film ends.
I think the plot, script, cast, and meaning of this movie couldn’t have been made better.
I literaly love this movie. It’s my favorite movie other than the real saga itself. If anyone feels the way I do about this movie, please like this and reblog it, in hopes of spreading the word about this one-hit wonder classic of a film. Fanboys Forever!
