The Dead Rise Again and Again: News, Movie Poster, and Trailer

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

"The Dead," not to be confused with George a Romero's "...of the Dead," is a zombie genre film set in the deserts of Africa. Filming, which took place in Ghana and Burkina, Faso is complete and now in post production. Third time English director Howard J. Ford, with help from brother Jonathon Ford, helm this independent terror flick and the trailer has a definite Romero feel as the undead stumble slowly around, in what looks like a mostly unthreatening manner. However, the unique and isolating backdrop of West Africa with a cross racial set of characters could spark some creative life in, what looks to be a thrilling story. Why the fascination with zombie films? And what do zombies represent in modern culture? Hopefully some of these questions, along with some excitement, will be given attention in this latest zombie film "The Dead."

Wow! I've just watched a slew of crap looking trailers on zombie/living dead type fare but this one looks amazing. A breath of fresh air - the whole Africa thing is as cool as hell. Worth a look just for that... Anyone know where you can buy a copy or when it's coming out?
