The Celluloid Social Club
TRAILER for FIDO directed by Andrew Currie, written by Robert Chumack, Andrew Currie & Dennis Heaton; starring Billy Connolly, Carrie Anne-Moss, Henry Czerny, Tim Blake, Sonja Bennett & Mary Black. FIDO is certainly not your average zombie movie. After all, how many zombie flicks do you know that star a Scottish comedian (Billy Connolly) as the title character? Far from being a typical gore fest, FIDO is a clever satire that has everyone in stitches. This often strange and delightful tale follows Timmy Robinson (K'Sun Ray), a lonely boy whose family is the only one on the block without a zombie. One day, in a desperate attempt to 'keep up with the Joneses', his mother (Carrie-Anne Moss) surprises the family with a six-foot rotting zombie soon-to-be-dubbed, Fido. A perfect addition to the family portrait. Trouble ensues, however, when Fido eats the next-door neighbour... A boy-and-his-dog movie for grown ups, FIDO will rip your heart out.
