Words like gore, horror, fear, death, and doom have become synonymous with the zombie apocalypse since its inception. But who said the zombie apocalypse had to be limited to just this?
A few laughs in risky times won’t get you murdered, especially if you’re sitting on your couch, snuggling a blanket, watching it all unfold from the comfort of your own home.
If you’re looking for a positive spin on a zombie outbreak, Blumhouse Television and Epix are launching Unhuman, and we can assure you that it will be out soon. Everything we know about the upcoming zombie comedy Unhuman so far.
When Will the Unhuman Movie Release?
Unhuman, a horror comedy starring Brianne Tju, is the latest collaboration between Blumhouse and EPIX. A film about a ragtag group of misfit teens and a race of aliens will be released digitally on June 3rd, 2022.
This school field trip begins very typically for the unfortunate students. To prepare them for a go outside to touch the grass, their jerkish principal (Peter Giles) offers an impassioned lecture.
The bus is full of your high school stereotypes—the jock who bullies the unpopular students, the Dungeons and Dragons nerds, the popular girls, and just about everything in between—all ready to enjoy their sort of day off at whatever location the school came up with that’s vaguely related to their coursework.
When the principal is attacked, they receive a message from the U.S. Office of Civil Defense warning them of a chemical attack that will turn everyone into zombies. Somewhere to hide is urgently sought by those who remain.
Who Will Be in the Cast of Unhuman?
Veteran horror writer Marcus Dunstan is in charge of the scripts for this installment, having worked on the Saw series starting with the fourth film. Patrick Melton, who wrote the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark film with Dunstan, is also a co-writer on this picture.
All four executive producers are Alex Krueger, Jeremy Gold, Chris McCumber, and Jason Blum.
The cast comprises:
- Drew Scheid
- Brianne Tju
- Benjamin Wadsworth
- Uriah Shelton
- Joshua Mikel
- Peter Giles
- Lo Graham
- Blake Burt
- C.J. LeBlanc
- Angel Lia Spitale
- Ali Gallo
- Dana Wing Lau
What Will Unhuman Be About?
The official synopsis of Unhuman is as follows:
“The dead will have this club for breakfast. Blumhouse Television and EPIX bring you the story of a high school field trip gone bloody awry. Seven misfit students must band together against a growing gang of unhuman savages. The group’s trust in each other is tested to the limit in a brutal, horrifying fight to survive and they must take down the murderous zombie-creatures… before they kill each other first.”
As per what we perceive of it, it will be a different perspective on the zombie genre. The series will follow a bunch of high school kids who will find themselves in a zombie apocalypse. The take is very different than the other zombie series like The Walking Dead, Z-NAtion, and Black Summer where the underlying feelings are purely fear, death, and survival.
However, with a bunch of teenagers, it would be anything but completely serious. Humor, sarcasm, sass, fun, laughter, and friendships, everything will be there in the upcoming Blumhouse production.
There are shades of Zombieland in the trailer, yet this film bestows superlatives on its stars based on how probable they are to succumb to the undead.
While one of the D&D geeks gets freaked out and throws his weapon, Brianne Tju’s character takes command and comes up with a plan to survive, earning her the title of “Most Likely to Survive.”
Because of their contrasting personalities, the group must work together regardless of how likely they are to kill, get killed, or get everyone killed. In the conclusion, it’s evident that the majority of pupils will be able to identify themselves and cope with their terrifying new situation.
