An adventurous wheelchair-bound woman drags her hyper-cautious cousin and friends into the outback to test off-road wheelchairs, but they encounter killer kangaroos with a taste for human flesh.
Good setup for a horror spoof, and i suppose after Black Sheep it’s only fair that each country will get a national animal version of the same parody…
With these kinds of films it is really the humor that will make or break it, and the premise by which the zombie animals are discovered is less relevant in the grand scheme of things. However this does have an interesting way of getting the heroes into the danger zone, and adding complications with the wheel chair.
Is their a ring leader or Alpha Kangaroo they need to kill before they call it a day? In other words what is the definitive goal they are pursuing that will determine whether they survive or not?
Hope this helps.
I like the killer kangaroo twist.
This is in essence a ‘Monster In the House’ film (per Blake Snyder’s genres). You nailed two of the three essential ingredients: a house and a supernatural monster. Your house is the outback and the supernatural monster is of course your kangaroos. What is missing is a sin. Something like greed in JAWS when the town officials plan to keep the beaches open during the profitable tourist season and their retribution is the killer shark.
My suggestion is to introduce a sin. Maybe the buddies who go to the outback are rowdy beer guzzlers, and they are developing the off-road wheelchair to go out and tear up the environment on drunken binges. Or maybe some form of corporate greed.
The idea is that the Kangaroos provide a form of comeuppance for the sins of the group. Nothing to heavy-handed, just an extra thread to round out the story.
