Ok, so I’ve been hearing a lot of hype about the new French zombie movie “The Horde”. It seems that the French can make a pretty kickass horror flick when they put their minds to it, and it seems they got their best minds together for this one. The film revovles around a gang of criminals and a group of corrupt cops coming head to head with a zombie apocalypse. Alliances are forced as the two groups fight to survive the outbreak. Guns, blood, violence and screaming fast moving zombies. What more do you need?
From the look of the trailer, and other clips found on Allocine, this movie is not to be missed by even the most basic Zombie fan. View the trailer below.
If I am to believe all the hype on the Internet (and we all know the internet NEVER lies) it would appear that the Novel “Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament” is being turned into a feature length film. Breathers is a romance story about a newly minted zombie finding his way through his new unlife. The film is to be written by Diablo Cody of “Jennifer’s Body” fame and some other boring flicks (sorry Diablo, tough to beat out flesh eating Megan Fox).
I am not sure about a Zombie romance. Emotional attachment to the undead can only lead to disaster. And I am sure Diablo Cody will breathe some interesting life to this lifeless character (in the undead sense, not the literary sense).
If you click here you can check out the trailer for Bing Baileys “Portrait of a Zombie”. The movie takes place in Ireland and revolves around an American film crew filming a documentary about a family with zombie issues.
It looks and sounds like a pretty solid piece. But if I see one zombie leprechaun, I’m gonna smack someone. Check it out.
According to Bloody Disgusting The Wagner/Cuban Companies’ Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that it has acquired US rights to George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead”.
Survival looks to be a progression of some of the themes from Land of the Dead. The zombies appear to have some sort of intelligence and are seen moving about in the trailer below. As well, the blood and gore levels seem to be far above the minimum required levels for a good Zombie flick. Overall I can’t wait to see this movie.
So some guys in Toronto are trying to put together a Zombie short film festival. I think that might be the most awesome short film festival EVER conceived. So, I’m posting it here.
As it stands, anyone can join. There’s a (tentative) $20 entry fee and two rules.
The film must be 20 minutes or shorter.
It must be about zombies (duh)
It’s in Toronto and hopefully being held at the Revue Cinema. For more information go to http://zombieshortfilmfestival.blogspot.com and check out the details. As it stands the entire event is conceptual and tenative. Without support it’s doomed to failure. So go out there, make a cool zombie film, and submit it so this can happen!
