THE SYNOPSIS

Set amidst a southern wedding, ‘Zombie of Honor’ teems with political undertones to address a culture and industry in need of a revolution.

 

It's a beautiful day for a wedding in this quaint Georgia town. Amidst the bustle and gossip of the day, lies a zombie 'movement’ these high-society, southern folk are dead-set against. Live in harmony with zombies? Absolutely not. But without a care in the world, Lizzie Dawson, the brides' younger sister and Maid of Honor is set to follow in her sister's footsteps and be married the same time next year...her day is coming!

While the bride spends the morning getting pampered, Lizzie and the bridesmaids get aisle ready. Somewhere between chit chat, curlers, and mimosas, Lizzie electrocutes the bridal party to death. When Lizzie realizes they are zombies at a boozy brunch their lives are turned upside down. Zombies are the sacrilegious outcasts of society. When the wedding planner is a no show, Lizzie’s takes a chance to show her family she is still one of them by deciding to coordinate the wedding herself.  

 

Lizzie and the zombie bridesmaids work tirelessly decorating cupcakes, hanging twinkle lights, setting bouquets, and avoiding wedding guests all while adapting to being zombies. Who are they going to eat?! Why are their toes blue?! When the time comes to tell her family the news, Lizzie's conservative mother and town Mayor casts the zombie bridesmaids out on their own and pitting Lizzie and her sister against one another. 

With a little help, the sisters come out of the fight stronger than ever and the bridal party makes it to the altar just in time for the ceremony…BUT when all is about to go off without a hitch, the evil mother of the bride leads an attack on the zombie bridesmaids. Lizzie is left with a choice: Stick to the status quo? Or defend her zombie bridesmaids' honor?
