Zombie Apocalypse Shows its First Viral Teaser Here!

Today is a good day to be a zombie fan folks, as The Asylum and director Nick Lyon (Species: The Awakening) have debuted the first teaser trailer for Zombie Apocalypse. There are make-up effects, pitched battles and actress Taryn Manning in a shower scene, all in under two minutes. The clip shows solid production values and The Asylum, from the promotional material, seems to be backing a winner here based on the story and the cast. Also starring are Ving Rhames (Dawn of the Dead), Gary Weeks (Deadland), Johnny Pacar (The Dead Undead) and Lesley-Ann Brandt (InSight).

This title will debut on television first through the SyFy Network. The first air date is October 29th at 9:00pm and this is just two weeks after the premiere of "The Walking Dead." Perhaps there is a competitive air afoot. Then, not much later, The Asylum will release this title on DVD December 27th. The film's story involves a viral outbreak called VM2. 90% of the world's population is wiped out or turned into raving lunatics, while the cities are quarantined. The characters in the film are trying to break out of these fenced off areas. Except, between them and escape lie millions of the infected and the undead. Check out the entertaining trailer below.

Director: Nick Lyon.

Writers: Craig Eagle and Brooks Peck.

Producers; David Rimawi, David Michael Latt, Paul Bales.
