“In the Wild West, to fight the undead, you have to resurrect ’90s boy bands.” That’s the tagline for SyFy and the Asylum’s new movie Dead 7, and that — plus “from the makers of Sharknado” — tells you all you need to know. Written by the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, who stars in the film along with his wife Lauren Kitt, his bandmates A.J McLean and Howie Dorough, ‘N Sync’s Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons, and Erik-Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick, and Dan Miller of O-Town, the film follows the exploits of the former stars as they, yes, fight zombies in a post-apocalyptic Wild West. The official trailer has now arrived, and it is ridiculous. Watch it below.
Dead 7 premieres on Syfy Friday, 4/1 at 8PM ET.
