The Dead (2009)

Johnny Thunder here with news of a zombie flick, but one with a different setting than we've seen in a while. Africa - yup, Africa - is the setting for this Rob Freeman-starring and Howard and Jonathan Ford collaboration. Intrigued? Me too......

Here's the official synopsis:

After crashing off the coast, Lt. Brian Murphy battles for survival across the vast terrains of Africa in search for a way to get back to his beloved family. Joined by local military man Daniel Dembele who is also searching for his son, together both men join forces all the while battling against the ever present threat of the living dead!

No information is available yet about distribution and whether this is headed straight to On Demand and DVD, but I will keep you posted.

Here's the official site including the zombitastic trailer, along with the IMDB link.

Looks like it might have some interesting possibilities given the locale. What do you think?

  1. I'm surprised it's not being trashed as "racist". Didn't the video game, Resident Evil 5, catch a lot of flak because of the setting and circumstances ie: Africa and zombified blacks? Anywho, p.c. b.s. aside, I think it looks great! Thanks for the update JT.
