A Little Bit Zombie is a 2012 zombie comedy horror film that was directed by Casey Walker.[1] The film received its world premiere on February 4, 2012 at the Victoria Film Festival in Victoria, British Columbia and was released on to DVD on July 16, 2013. The movie stars Kristopher Turner as a young man trying to control his new hunger for human flesh in order avoid the wrath of his fiancee.[2]

Filming took place in Sudbury, Ontario during June 2011.[3] The movie was crowdsourced through Walker's initiative called My Million Dollar Movie over a five-year period, during which he raised over a million dollars by allowing people to back the film by "purchasing" a frame.[4][5]

Synopsis[edit]

All Steve (Kristopher Turner) wants is to make his incredibly controlling fiancee Tina (Crystal Lowe) happy, even if it's at his own personal expense. His best friend Craig (Shawn Roberts) and sister Sarah (Kristen Hager) accompany Steve to their family's cabin in the hopes of convincing him that she's not right for him, but with no success. When Steve is infected with a strange virus via a mosquito bite, he begins to turn into a zombie and hunger for brains. Despite this new turn of events, all Tina cares about is getting married and doesn't care that Steve is starting to miss various body parts. Now Steve must try to control his new urges while also trying to avoid a zombie hunter (Stephen McHattie) out to end his existence.
