The first trailer
for the upcoming zombie horror movie called Contracted
has been released for viewing. The movie, starring Najarra Townsend
and distributed by IFC Midnight, will have a limited screening on November 22. According to the movie's Twitter account
will also be made available via video on demand (VOD). This is a zombie movie in which explores another way of contracting a zombie infection instead of other methods such as blood-on-blood contact, getting bitten, getting scratched, and/or already getting infected from the start.
Townsend plays the story's protagonist Samantha who's a known party girl. The trailer establishes that Samantha is probably bisexual due to having a female lover but having a one-night stand with a mysterious guy named Simon. Due to relationship complications, Samantha moves back with her mother in which the relationship itself is also complicated. At a party, she cheats on her girlfriend by having a one-night stand with Simon. After that one-night stand, she's afflicted with a mysterious infection that's causing her to cough blood and causing her body to slowly decompose.
In short, Samantha got a zombie STD. This is possibly the first film that explores the idea of getting infected by the zombie plague through sexual intercourse.
