18th century and zombies – this movie would be worth having money thrown at even if Sir Ian McKellen, Andrew Buchan and Gillian Anderson were not involved. But they are,
and as I’ve already been a good Mrs. Joyful this month and donated to worthy causes, I feel now the time has come for italics and the frivolous ones!
Edited to add: curse and botheration! Time is already up – film makers, you should inform your target audience in time. There go my hopes of ever becoming a ship’s boy – but anyway, there’s a short video clip, so I leave the link here.
It’s 1730 and the beautiful Buxom Strumpet, laden with goods from far flung shores, sails home to it’s little port town. All is not well however as she carries a plague most foul. The disease spreads fast and soon the inhabitants of Upper Trollop are ravaged, blood thirsty beasts. A band of survivors, led by Lord Frederick Fortitude, battle their way across town to jump aboard the Buxom Strumpet and sail to safety in France…or so they think!
The Buxom Strumpet is a ship?
… or so the maker of this exquisite piece of footwear must have thought. At first glance, it’s a shoe as worn by a fashionable lady in the mid-18th century. But at the second glance – well, at the second glance, it’s the roaring twenties in all their glory.
Now’s the moment to hit the back button if you’re not old enough for naughty shoes.
