Mr Burns


Directed by Garney Johnson

Think Walking Dead minus zombies plus The Simpsons! In this outrageous dark comedy, we find a group of strangers in a post-apocalyptic setting bonding over a mutual affection for The Simpsons, particularly the “Cape Feare” episode from season 5 when Sideshow Bob first tries to kill Bart Simpson.
