Zombie Driftwood, a new low-budget, very funny British horror comedy.
Produced by Sundance Festival 2010 award winner Dave Mcwhinnie and directed by Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Bob Carruthers, the film sees a Caribbean cruise ship full of American passengers who are mysteriously turned into zombies before arriving at the Cayman Islands, intent on cannibalism, boozing and souvenir shopping! Caught up in the mayhem are the members of a touring British metal band and a zombie Adolf Hitler who hopes to lead the zombies to world domination – if only he didn?t have to present a weekly talent show on Zomby TV. The result is a surreal mixture of cinematic lunacy as the zombies discover they too have rights and the besieged patrons realise that music can be a potent weapon in the fight for survival.

In a contemporary re-imagining of the classic tale, Jack Black stars as Gulliver, a big-talking mailroom clerk who, after he?s mistakenly assigned a travel piece on the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of very tiny people. At first enslaved by the diminutive and industrious Liliputians and later declared their hero, Gulliver comes to learn that it?s how big you are on the inside that counts.
