In the horror comedy Kitchen Sink starring Vanessa Hudgens, three very different teenagers must prevent an alien invasion. The action takes place in the town of Dillford, where humans, vampires and zombies have uncharacteristically lived together peacefully, although with clear class destinctions. The social order has vampires at the top, humans in the middle and zombies at the bottom. But when something unexpected occurs, it puts an end to peaceful life in Dillford, and mortal combat breaks out, resulting in humans vs. vampires vs. zombies. A teenage vampire, zombie and human join forces during the crisis in an attempt to save the town.
The project is being described as “a monster mash-up movie in the vein of Zombieland.”
One of the film’s producers, Matt Tolmach, was quoted in Variety saying, “Kitchen Sink has all the chaos and carnage of a classic genre movie, but at its heart it’s a comedy about three kids just trying to survive the pain and awkwardness of high school, where every day feels apocalyptic.”
The film also stars Nicholas Braun (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Mackenzie Davis (That Awkard Moment), Patton Oswalt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Rachael Harris (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb), Joan Cusack of TV’s Shameless, Denis Leary (The Amazing Spider-Man franchise) and newcomer Josh Fadem.
The movie was directed by Robbie Pickering, who previously worked with Rachael Harris on the comedy drama Natural Selection. The screenplay was written by 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel.
Kitchen Sink opens in theaters nationwide Sept. 4, 2015.
