Zombies and unprotected sex? Yup, that is certainly one way to get our attention: Check out the awesomely creepy trailer for writer-director Eric England's "Contracted," an indie horror about a young sexually-active woman (Najarra Townsend) who has a one-night stand with a random stranger, only to discover she's been infected by a mysterious and rare venereal disease, which appears to be turning her into a zombie. (Just remember kids: no glove, no love.)
Contracted tells the cautionary tale of Samantha (Najarra Townsend), a twenty‐something party girl with little discipline and even less direction. After experiencing a lapse in her relationship with her lover (Katie Stegeman), she's forced to move back in with her overbearing mother (Caroline Williams). Samantha's only means to escape seems to come in the form of a flower competition that she's determined to win. Things take a turn for the worse when Samantha spends the night with mysterious man (Simon Barrett), leaving her hung‐over and guilt‐ridden. However, something else is wrong with Samantha. Something is infecting her. Unsure of the disease or the man who gave it to her, she must attempt to hide it from her loved ones. Now, Samantha realizes she is not just the victim of an STD, but rather the host of something much more catastrophic. Prepare to witness a zombie film like you've never even imagined.
