Fresh Trailer For African-Set Zombie Flick THE DEAD
About to premiere at the Film4 Fright Fest in London before moving on to appearances at Fantastic Fest and Sitges, the Ford Brothers' upcoming zombie picture has been winning a load of advance admiration and excitement based on the early trailers and the novelty of the film's African setting. Me? After being burned badly by recent French zombie effort The Horde - which I think is pretty awful - I've been staying at a cautious distance and waiting to actually see the thing before speculating. And while I still haven't seen the complete picture I do, at least, have a new trailer to share with a good amount of footage that should be new to fans of the earlier promo spots. Check it below.
In the very near future, most of the world has succumbed to the virus of the living dead. After crashing off the coast of Africa, Lt. Brian Murphy battles for survival across the terrible terrain of Africa in search of a way to get back to his beloved family in the USA. Saved by local military man Daniel Dembele, who is also searching for his son, both men join forces, all the while battling against the ever-present threat of the living dead.
