From the "WTF Tuesday" files...
Here's a project I remember profiling on the old site, I believe it was in 2011. At the time, I had little information on it, so I shared very little.
2 years later, according to our friends at Quiet Earth this afternoon, the film is heading to theaters and VOD next month.
Directed by Mike Maria, the film is titled The Return of the Moonwalker, which sees Michael Jackson coming back from the dead, as a zombie. Yes, that's right - you read that correctly.
Here's an official synopsis:
Michael Jackson's hand has been stolen from his crypt in LA!! The culprits: two love-struck leather dwarves, acting on the orders of Dr. Cagliostro, a time-traveling sorcerer posing as the manager of a “punk circus” in Berlin. The mysterious mystic's mad plan: use the risen Michael to rouse the masses and ignite a global revolution! Realizing something strange is afoot, two lesbian ghost hunter girls and three horny college dudes team up to infiltrate Cagliostro's circus. Things come to a head when the rapidly decaying Jacko-Zombie Messiah takes over the circus and starts his own "Rainbow Revolution" one that quickly descends into chaos.
I'm sure this will offend many.
Quiet Earth says that The Return of the Moonwalker opens theatrically in Germany at the end of this month; and will be available on VOD globally in March.
Here's the trailer for a glimpse at the ridisculousness to expect. You'll find the poster underneath:
