I love zombie movies. I love silly jokes. And who doesn’t love Grandma’s Boy? So when I heard about a short film (looking to become a longer one) that rolled up all three and lit ’em up, I had to talk to creators Satheesan Nagenthiram, Steve Kasan and Lance Fernandes. And ask them really stupid questions. Because you could find out all about their film Wasted at their various social media sites. But will you find out what they think about pandas over there? No. No, you won’t. But you will here.
I saw the short, and liked the mashup of survival cheet-sheet story, zombiness and stoner humor. The gore is pretty sweet, with a cartoonish excess that I’ve always been a fan of. Think a low-budget Shaun of the Dead, but with more survival tips. And weed. Definitely more weed.
Here’s a bit of 411 about the project, straight from the stoners themselves:
Wasted is about a group of friends break away from their mundane routines of regular life and have high adventures when the one event they have been waiting for occurs, the Zombie Apocalypse. A hybrid joint of high zombie action, comedy, geek references and plain insanity. It is Scott Pilgrim meets Mad Max.Follow us on Twitter @WastedtheshowOn Facebook WastedshowAlso find more videos here http://www.cinecoup.com/wastedThe Skull & Cross Blunts is us.No work, No rules and No responsibilities, well, you get Wasted.
And herewith, 5 stupid questions. Take it away, fellas!
1) So, what’s up with Aquaman?
If you’re talking about Momoa Aquaman, I personally love it. I like that they changed everything mainly making Aquaman of Samoan/Maori heritage.
2) If you could be any vegetable you wanted to be, what would you be? Why?
Tomato because Tomatoes can be in everything. And, if a tomato becomes radioactive it will come to life and kill. It would be, dare I say, an Attack of Killer Tomatoes!!
3) Pandas. Discuss.
They know Kung Fu at least that is what the movies and Jack Black tells me.
4) Is Winter really coming?
Yes. In Canada we only have two seasons Construction and Winter. But, I really hope Winter is coming otherwise poor Ned & Rob got beheaded for bullshit.
5) Is it really always 4:20 somewhere?
Yes. Quite true I believe NATO has decreed that somewhere in the world at all times must be obliged and inhaled.
