We've been tracking the progress of Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro’s Brazilian zombie picture Beyond the Grave for a good while now, and why not? When you've got the same effects crew doing your make up as handled the latest from the legendary Coffin Joe and are citing the likes of Jodorowsky and Sergio Leone as key visual influences there is lots of reason for hope. Well, the full trailer for the film has just arrived and while it definitely shows it's budget limits a little bit this thing looks like some bloodily impressive stuff. Not content to do 'just another zombie movie' Pinheiro builds his film around a cop tracking a serial killer in a world that just happens to be in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. And those visual influences? The Leone is definitely there and I see a lot of Dick Tracy style 1950's comic influences as well in everything from production design (particularly the cop car) to the way Pinheiro saturates the colors in his film. And the creature effects are mighty nice, too.
