It’s not all bobby socks and Clearasil for Jonny Warner when he drops the “h” from his name, dives head-long into the town’s nuclear reactor, and returns to 1950s high school life as a zombie. Zombie Prom follows the angst-ridden teen love of Jonny and Toffee as they try to navigate the waters of high school during the atomic age. Not only must they face the injustices generally placed on zombies, they must also face the tyrannical Principal Delilah Strict, as well as the probing eye of sensationalist reporter Eddie Flagrante who exploits the lovers in his “cause celebre” of zombie civil rights.
Features Will Hawkins as Jonny Warner, Julia Klavans as Toffee, Dallas Milholland as Delilah Strict, and Joshua Simon as Eddie Flagrante, with Katie Culligan (Coco), Philip da Costa (Joey), Jordan Clark Halsey (Josh), Kelsey Painter (Candy), RJ Pavel (Jake), and Stephanie Wilson (Ginger).
