Halloween kicks off with Zombie Apocalypse, as part of SyFy’s launch of a new slate of holiday-themed Saturday Original movies. Zombie Apocalypse, stars GoldenGlobe winner Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, Mission Impossible, Dawn of the Dead), and will premiere tonight, Saturday, October 29 at 9PM (ET/PT).
Said Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies: “Syfy is committed to finding new and different ways to destroy the world in our Saturday Original Movies. Since 2002, we’ve unleashed natural disasters, unnatural disasters, creatures on land, sea and air, and iconic fantasy characters. Now we’re taking over the holiday seasons, one terrifying movie at a time.”
In the Halloween-themed Zombie Apocalypse, a zombie plague has wiped out 90 percent of the world’s population. A small group of survivors, led by Rhames, fight their way across the United States to a rumored refuge on the island of Catalina. The movie also features Taryn Manning (Hawaii Five-O, Sons of Anarchy). SyFy plans other holiday themed movies for Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day.
