Canada’s been good to the entertainment industry for premiering top celebrity talent – in fact they have even been good enough to grace audiences with Kim Poirier, a successful actress, television host, singer, and producer.  Her beauty is evident, but that aside Kim is as intelligent as she is talented.  For the past couple years Kim has had a big role in helping Moving Pictures Media Group with their various entertainment-related projects.

So, what more can we expect from the Canadian native that rose to Hollywood glory?

Kim will soon bless zombie fans with her presence in the late film by Moving Pictures Media Group titled, 100 Days of Death, based on the popular “Days of Death” trilogy written by brilliant novelist, Ray Ellingson with outstanding art work from Tommy Castillo.  The story is set when a lone man who finds himself grouped with other survivors in a stand-off against the world swept by a violent epidemic.  Perhaps we should expect Kim’s role in the film to be key in the group’s survival.  The novel has been a huge hit and as spokesperson/host for Moving Pictures Media Group, Kim has revealed that the film’s production is currently underway with a phone app and video game in fruition, as well as a comic book which is currently awaiting a Kickstarter.com campaign to help fans get more involved with the project.

One thing about horror movies is that they never fail to entertain.  Since George A. Romero’s cult classic Night of the Living Dead, we’ve seen the genre grow in popularity and take different creative directions, leaving fans just as hungry for more films as zombies are for brains.  We’ve seen zombies in heart racing horror pictures (Dawn of the Dead, 28 Days Later), action/sci-fi hits (Resident Evil saga), comedy (Shawn of the Dead, Zombieland), and the most recent fresh take on romance with Warm Bodies, which grossed $19.5 million during Super Bowl weekend.  Oh, and let’s not fail to mention AMC’s Walking Dead which made television history with the largest series premier that drew in just over 53 million viewers.  100 Days of Death will give us its own take on how humans not only struggle to survive among zombie hordes, but amongst each other as well.  What also gives zombie fans something new is how the zombies themselves evolve as time goes by.

Kim is no stranger to zombie films as she was one of the lead cast members in Zach Snyder’s 2004 hit Dawn of the Dead.  She had been in other horror films as well such as Decoys 1 and 2.  Any role Kim gets, she accepts proudly as she admits, “With every character I play, I feel so lucky to have the chance to express myself in this way.” 

Kim suffered an unfortunate (but cool) fate in Dawn of the Dead, so let’s look forward to seeing what she’ll bring to the screen come 2013 with 100 Days of Death!
