Winnipeg-born actor Kristopher Turner will soon be seen across North America starring as psychiatrist Dr. Gavin Murphy in the upcoming CTV/NBC hospital drama Saving Hope. But before he landed that prestigious gig (as well as his recurring role on the MuchMusic drama The L.A. Complex), Turner starred in first-time director Casey Walker’s horror comedy A Little Bit Zombie as Steve, a harried  husband-to-be who tries to keep his brain cravings hidden from his future bride.

 

Are you a horror comedy fan?

I certainly am now. That movie was one of the most fun I’ve ever had working on a set. It was a blast. And most of it came down to our director Casey Walker who had complete control over this film. It was a crowdsourced movie before even Facebook was around. He started crowdsourcing it in 2006. It’s been a grassroots project right from the beginning, and with this being his first big feature and having complete control over it, it was such a freeing experience to be able to be creating this and not having other producer notes coming over our head; like, we got to make the movie that we wanted to make.

 

What can horror fans expect from this movie?

In the same way it’s paying homage to and making fun of the horror genre, it’s making fun of the romantic comedy genre. It’s sort of taking the piss out of and paying homage to all those zombie worlds.

 

Saving Hope premieres on CTV and NBC Thursday, June 7, at 9 pm ET/PT.

If you’ve followed the Resident Evil movie franchise this far, odds are you have accepted the fact that they value action over horror, are not terribly well-written and don’t religiously follow the video game series that inspired them. With those expectations in mind, Resident Evil: Afterlife, the fourth live-action RE film, boasts some astonishing set pieces, impressive visual effects and a wholly ridiculous story.
