Frost Road is like a zombie film in reverse?
Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010
Back in December last year came news that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 director Keith Arem was making a movie called Frost Road. Details of the plot were quite vague – a small coastal Eastern town which is suddenly and inexplicably devastated by an invisible contagion.
Now Arem has given some more info about the plot while speaking to USA Today and it sounds rather good.
“It revolves around this man who wakes up behind the wheel of his car,” he told the paper. “He has crashed headfirst into this tree in the middle of this forest in the middle of nowhere. He comes to, he’s been injured. He’s bleeding from his head and thinks it is from this car crash. He finds a cell phone in the car and tries to call 911 and there’s a strange interference that is somehow blocking his call. He makes his way down to this town of Frost Road and finds that this entire town has died, everyone is gone and whatever happened just happened recently. For whatever reason, he is immune to what happened.”
“Our main character is immune to what is happening while something is affecting the townspeople. They are essentially ripping themselves apart,” Arem says. “It becomes a sort of a zombie film in reverse. Instead of this constant threat of being attacked by all these plagued victims, this becomes a story of survival and keeping these people alive.”
There is an official site for it but not much on it at the moment.
