Lost in the Web: Zombie Roadkill

I have to admit that if it hadn’t been for fellow Lost in Review critic John Coovert, I would never have known that this webseries existed.  Because the truth is that I have never been a big fan of the horror genre and if you repeat this I swear I will deny all knowledge but I am a scaredy-cat.  Yes, that’s right horror movies of any type freak me the frak out.  There I admitted it, are you happy now?  Sheesh, can we move on already because even though I am not a fan of horror movies Zombie Roadkill is not a horror series.  Oh sure it has blood and carnage and zombie squirrels.  Don’t bother reading that last over again I wrote zombie squirrels and I meant zombie squirrels.

Zombie Roadkill is a 6 webisode series executive produced by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spiderman) and Robert G. Tapert (Drag Me to Hell) which premiered on FEARnet on October 4, 2010.  I realize that the webseries has been online for a while now but that should not be a deterrent to checking it out.  This being FEARnet I expected massive blood lost, oozing wounds, and penetrating bones.  What I got instead was whacked out squirrels, a half eaten eyeball (followed immediately by a flashback to an 80’s movie called Summer School, a must see by the way), and a slightly insane human version of Smokey the Bear.
