How very bizarre. So I'm flipping through DVD Planet over the weekend and I came across a film called They Came Back. The tagline on the site was " Why have the dead suddenly returned?" And it's from Wellspring.
So I'm thinking, A zombie movie? What in the world is Wellspring doing releasing a zombie movie?
And here it is.
It's an art zombie movie. From France. About the dead suddenly coming back to life and trying to return to their lives. Man, that's eerie as hell.
ScottC says parallel development, and that's the truth. Never heard of this French film before now. And from what I've read about the film, there are some differences. The dead have some kind of secret reason for being back in the film. And they don't come back completely there, at least in the cabeza department. And the effect doesn't seem to keep going back and back.
Not defending myself here, but this is the first time I've written something only to find afterwards that something really, really damn similar had been done before. Usually I have an idea and start to develop it and then hear something that makes me stop.
Just weird, that's all. Now I need to find the thing and watch it. Because a French zombie art movie sounds fascinating regardless. I mean, this is the country that did Brotherhood of the Wolf, for God's sake.
