Synopsis: A mysterious virus hits an isolated elementary school, transforming the kids into a feral swarm of mass savages. An unlikely hero must lead a motley band of teachers in the fight of their lives.
Release Date: September 18, 2015
Thoughts: Into every trailer binge a little questionable hilarity must fall and Cooties sure fits the bill as one of the more oddball coming attractions I’ve seen in some time. Not that it doesn’t look like a B-movie hoot because it does, even though I’ve a feeling I’ll hate myself later for saying so. Holed up in the teachers’ lounge avoiding a pack of infected children are the likes of Elijah Wood (The Wind Rises), Alison Pill (Snowpiercer), Leigh Whannell (Insidious), and Rainn Wilson. If played right, this could be a neat-o little camp fest. On the other hand, the film’s one joke could already be played out by the time you’re in your seat waiting for this one to begin. I dig the poster art above and am more than a little interested to see the kids go all Rabid Grannies on their teachers…so I’m in.
