Cooties, a horror/comedy film was released both in theaters (very limited) and pay-per-view this last weekend (September 18). It was produced by Glacier Films and SpectreVision, a production company focusing on the horror film genre co-founded by Elijah Wood, who also stars in the film.
Without going into much detail, the film is about a bunch of fourth-graders (i.e. 9 and 10 year-olds) who catch a highly contagious virus originating in an infected chicken nugget. They turn into zombies and kill several of their teachers as well as each other. Meanwhile teachers are killing children. Lots of dismemberments, face eating, disembowelments, exposed brains and other good fun. (The movie was filmed in 2013 and is rated R, which means the kids theoretically won't be able to watch it until 2020 when they're 17. But I'm sure many have seen it already or will shortly.)
Cooties premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014, and was picked up by Lionsgate. Lionsgate decided to reshoot the ending, given their additional financial resources.
Since the new ending didn't look all that expensive to film, does anyone know what the original ending was, as screened at Sundance? I can't find any mention other than "they filmed a new ending".
