Watch out for our interview with Charlie coming soon…
Fans of ‘The Enemy’ by best-selling author Charlie Higson don’t have long to wait for the new instalment in his cult zombie series. But before The Sacrifice, the fourth book in the series, is published on 20 September 2012, it’s horrifying world of zombie ‘sickos’ has been brought to life in a spine-chilling trailer that will whet the appetite of fans new and old.
Written and directed by Charlie Higson himself, this is the fourth in a series of trailers for the series and is the most ambitious trailer Puffin has ever made for a book. Shot in locations around London, including on the Millennium Bridge, the trailer features young actors from Forest Hill School, South London and a cast of zombie-sickos played by fans who entered a nationwide competition to appear in the short film. They bring to life some of the scenes from the new book and a give a taster of the action to come.
The trailer also introduces us to a grotesque new character, ‘Wormwood’ or the ‘Green Man’, so called as his entire body is covered in mould – an effect which took nearly a full day in make-up.
‘The Enemy’ series is set in a post-apocalyptic London after a mystery illness attacks everyone over the age of fourteen. Some survive, but those that do face a more terrifying fate – they turn into hideous zombies with an insatiable appetite for human flesh. Children form gangs and attempt to survive in an unrecognisable world where there are dangers around every corner.
