Lifetime never seems to run out of the thrillers and chillers they churn out for us every weekend without fail. This Saturday, they’re airing a movie that has elements of horror as well. That’s right. Zombie at 17 will premiere at 8:00 p.m. EST on Saturday night, October 27, 2018, and it promises to be quite a scare-fest for viewers. We’ll give you some details on the plot and cast of Zombie at 17 right here.
Zombie at 17 Plot
Teenager Tia Scott (Celeste Desjardins) is a regular 17-year-old girl whose life is pretty uneventful except for the death of her older sister in a hit-and-run incident some time ago.
Things get terrible when she starts showing strange symptoms and then learns, to her horror, that she has contracted a virus that is slowly turning her into a zombie.
Tia is desperate to find a cure for her life-altering illness, and in panic and fear, she turns for help to a loner at school named Flynn Murson (Seamus Patterson). Murson is a self-proclaimed expert at paranormal things and pretty hard to communicate with, given his loner status.
Tia’s life gets even worse when a friend of her boyfriend, Connor Foster (Carson MacCormac), is brutally murdered. Tia knows for sure that Connor’s friend Jason Ellzey (Connor McMahon) is involved, and she goes to the cops. That makes her a target for her enemies, and the clock is ticking as the virus consumes her.
In a final attempt to save herself, Tia enlists the help of her mother, Kate Scott (Laurie Fortier), and a reclusive doctor in the hope that they will either stop the disease or find a cure for it.
All this needs to be done at lightning speed before Jason Ellzey finds out that Tia Scott is a snitch. Will Tia be saved from becoming a full-blown zombie? Will she be able to protect herself from Jason?
