Zombie Town trailer: R.L. Stine movie starring Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase gets September release

A trailer has been unveiled for the R.L. Stine adaptation Zombie Town, starring Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase

Just a couple weeks ago, we were wondering when the film adaptation of R.L. Stine‘s novel Zombie Town would be released – but now a trailer for the movie has arrived online, along with the announcement that Zombie Town is going to be receiving a theatrical release in the United States on September 1st! So to figure out whether or not this is a movie you’ll want to catch on the big screen in a week and a half, check out the trailer in the embed above!

Stine’s Zombie Town sees a quiet town upended when 12-year-old Mike and his friend, Karen, see a horror movie called Zombie Town and unexpectedly see the title characters leap off the screen and chase them through the theater.

The cinematic adaptation was directed by animator Peter Lepeniotis. Marlon Kazadi (Child’s Play 2019) and Madi Monroe (Attaway General) are the leads in the film, which is described as “a mystery teen romancer”. Also in the cast are Henry Czerny (Mission: Impossible) and Kids in the Hall members Scott Thompson and Bruce McCulloch, plus Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase, who have worked together multiple times over the decades: Saturday Night Live, Spies Like Us, Caddyshack II, The Couch Trip, Nothing But Trouble, the music video for Ray Parker Jr.’s “Ghostbusters” theme song, an episode of Family Guy.

Zombie Town is executive produced by Trimuse Entertainment, Toonz Media Group, Lookout Entertainment, Viva Pictures, and actor Kim Coates.

Following its theatrical release, the film will be heading over to the Hulu streaming service. It’s also expected to get a release through ABC Australia sometime before the end of the year.

Zombie Town was given a PG-13 rating for “some language and bloody images“.

What did you think of the trailer for Zombie Town? Will you be watching this movie during its theatrical run? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

The presence of Aykroyd, Chase, and a couple of Kids in the Hall in the cast has already guaranteed that I’ll be watching this movie at some point. I won’t be seeing it in a theatre, but I’ll watch it eventually.
