13 Eerie with Katharine Isabelle and Brendan Fehr

 Coming to DVD April 2nd from Entertainment One. This looks a lot like a slasher, what with the Friday the 13th knockoff font (a font I've decided is called Thursday The 12th) and the woods and all. But this is actually a zombie film set in the woods (Video Dead?). Then, the tagline is "We Prey For You", so that's a dead giveaway it's about zombies. Either way, the first name on the poster is Katharine Isabelle, so I'm sold. Especially after her excellent performance in American Mary, I'll watch pretty much any horror film she signs onto.

 Six ambitious forensic undergrads are pitted against one another on a scientific expedition to a remote island, vying to win an esteemed trainee position with the FBI. Unbeknownst to everyone, the site was formally used as an illegal biological testing grounds for life-term criminals who were left for dead. Behind the mission is Professor Tomkins, who together with FBI agent Veneziano have devised a series of experiments to test the would-be agents to their limits. Three mutilated cadavers taken from the medical labs have been planted around the island in a reconstructive test which the undergrads will be assigned tasks in order to discover what may have caused the fatal injuries.

Even before the undergrads have started their experiments, the zombie criminal convicts are systematically hunting them down and what started as a fight for an esteemed career in the FBI is now a fight for their very lives.

I think if you're going to use a font that similar to the Friday the 13th font you should at least try not to have 13 in your title.

I love this shot of Katharine, anyone think she looks a lot like Virginia Madsen in this picture?
