Are Zombies the cure for Humanity?

Ah, the Zombie genre. Like it’s namesake, it keeps coming back to life. Maybe Sony Pictures new UK thriller, PATIENT ZERO will manage to squeeze out more scares for us hungry fans. For now, we’ll feed you the new trailer.

Featuring DOCTOR WHO‘s Matt Smith as a some sort of Military analyst who can communicate with the undead, PATIENT ZERO presents a ticking-clock scenario where survivors search for a cure via the original carrier of the disease. The hunt intensifies when they meet Stanley Tucci (THE HUNGER GAMES), who seems to be some sort of evolved Zombie messiah who claims Humanity is the disease, and they are its cure. Immunize that.

Directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky (COLD HELL) and starring GAME OF THRONES‘ Natalie Dormer and Clive Standen (EVEREST), PATIENT ZERO is scheduled for release on digital August 14th and theaters September 14th.

Will PATIENT ZERO land with the thud of a cadaver? Or offer new tastes? Time will tell. For now, take a bite of the trailer below.

In the pandemic thriller, Patient Zero, humanity is battling intelligent, adrenaline-fueled creatures born from a viral super-strain. After being bitten, human survivor Morgan (Matt Smith) realizes he is asymptomatic and can communicate with the infected, leading the last survivors on a hunt for Patient Zero and a cure.
