DEAD 7 — Say Bye Bye Bye to Zombies because Backstreet’s Back, Alright!

While looking for movies to watch I came across a story too random to possibly be true; Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys fame co-wrote a screenplay about zombies and turned it into a movie with his 90s boy band friends.


DEAD 7 stars Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, and Howie Dorough from The Backstreet Boys, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick from ’N Sync, Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees, and basically all of O-Town (Erik-Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick, and Dan Miller). DEAD 7 has not surprisingly been described as a collection of tropes that recall everything from The Magnificent Seven to The Walking Dead to Inglourious Basterds:

This post-apocalyptic Western follows a group of gunslingers as they look to rid a small town of a zombie plague.

90’s boy bands v.s. the dance-move impaired seems a little unfair to me, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued enough to watch at the very least 10 minutes of it. Double points if they steered clear of making it a musical. Here is a favourite from the past:

Yeahhh, 90s music video production value; nothing like it. Take notes all you numerical directions, some quality fun’ness went down back then.
