Welcome to Willard, an idyllic town in a 1950s parallel universe, where the sun shines every day, everybody knows their neighbour and zombies carry the mail.
Visually captivating, sly and clever, Fido follows the Robinson family, who have been hesitant to get a zombie of their own even though everyone on the block has one. All that changes when Mom (Moss) buys Fido and the loveable brute becomes young Timmy’s best friend. Fido is a funny, satirical and refreshing movie with an all-star cast and a standout performance by Billy Connolly as Fido.
“Currie’s zombie comedy is in a class by itself.”
— Lori Fireman, Now Magazine
“When we screened Fido to the students they responded so positively. I think Reel Canada is a wonderful way of creating a strong conduit to our films.” — Andrew Currie, filmmaker
Currie attended Simon Fraser University and the CFC. His feature films Mile Zero and Fido garnered international acclaim and awards. He is currently working on the features Scatterbrain and The Invisibles and developing Fido into a TV series. His most recent film is The Steps.
