Evil in the Time of Heroes
Slick, wacky, and chomping at the bit with gobs of human-on-zombie-violence, Evil In the Time of Heroes is a Grecian take on Shaun of the Dead crossed with 28 Days Later. Millennia ago in ancient Greece, blood-thirsty zombies begin wreaking havoc on humans, and only a mysterious cloaked hero (Billy Zane) and his otherworldly weapons can save them. Flash forward to the present day when Athens is once again plagued by the undead, and a ragtag band of human survivors is on the run. Among them are a taxi driver who seems to be immortal, a pair of hot-blooded soldiers with some serious chemistry, and a doctor who can’t stand to get his shoes dirty while stomping zombie heads. Meanwhile, the elusive hero is back — but zombies are only half the problem. With less than a day before Greece is bombed to contain the zombie virus, it’s a race against time for the remaining humans. A highly cinematic bloodbath that’s just as clever as it is gory, Evil In the Time of Heroes has it all: lighting-fast action, realistically terrifying zombies, and a healthy dose of fun.
