Sometimes the past comes back to bite you in the ass, neck, face, etc.
Ever come across a flick with a premise so silly, you just go with the flow? You tap out to its narrative? And surprisingly wind up enjoying it? Yeah… well, that was me with WITNESS INFECTION. A comedy-horror that blends two of the most unlikely of genres: zombies and the mob.
The overall premise of WITNESS INFECTION shines a spotlight on two mob families transferred from the Witness Protection Program to the same city by mistake. As the art of old rivalry arises, there is an underlying threat oblivious to both families: a deadly infection. The rest… is up to God!
Zombies and mob families and chaos, oh my! Ridiculously fun and entertaining would be the best way to describe this flick. Directed by Andy Palmer, WITNESS INFECTION is the perfect example of what happens when you allow a production to present itself the way it’s intended. Are there issues? Sure. But the fact that it flows by without taking itself seriously is what makes this piece a charm, even if it entails blood and guts for the glory.
