Cannon Fodder (Basar Totahim)

, 2012

There is a new conflict in the Middle East.

Israel’s first zombie film is helmed by director and champion of Israeli indie cinema Eitan Gafny. Paying homage to horror icon George A. Romero, Cannon Fodder is Israel’s answer to 28 Days Later. Using more than 150 litres of fake blood during its making, and with a cast of ex-IDF* special-ops soldiers, the film shocks with gob-smacking gore and authenticity in its combat sequences. IDF trooper Doron Geva (Liron Levo) spearheads a mission with a battalion of soldiers he has never fought alongside before. As the mission unfolds the team discovers that a biological weapons test has gone horribly wrong, forcing them to fight against a horde of ravenous zombies hungry for their flesh.
