Disney XD gets zombie-fied with new original movie Bunks, premiering October 27 - Homegrown horror is first-ever Canadian original movie for Disney XD

TORONTO, Oct. 7, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Disney XD braces itself for an unforgettable supernatural ex-fear-ience with the world premiere of the first-ever Disney XD Canadian original movie, Bunks. Debuting Sunday, October 27 at 8 p.m. ET, the action-packed, zombie comedy - or zom-edy - follows Dylan and Dane O'Reilly, troublemaking brothers who accidentally unleash a curse on their camp that brings every campfire story to life. Filmed in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Kenora, Ontario, Bunks is a not-so-typical coming of age story about brotherhood, leadership and the great outdoors.

Brothers Dylan (Dylan Schmid) and Dane (Aidan Shipley) are always getting into trouble, so when their parents decide to send them to military camp for the summer, they devise a plan to sneak into Camp Bushwhack, an idyllic island camp. Posing as camp counsellors, the brothers fumble through quintessential camping activities, leading a rag-tag cabin of 11-year-olds through canoe trips, dodgeball disasters and more. But, the real trouble begins when the mischievous pair accidentally awaken a curse that brings campfire stories to life and sets a massive zombie outbreak into motion. Now, instead of just faking it, Dylan and Dane must learn what it really means to be leaders, and team up with their campers to save Camp Bushwhack.
