We have mentioned Howard J. Ford’s African zombie movie The Dead a few times now and while it has been making its rounds on the film festival circuit for some time now I’ve been waiting for its release as I’m sure some of you have been as well.
According to STYD Anchor Bay/Starz has picked up The Dead for U.S. distribution with a DVD release expected some time this year.
I love me a zombie film and it being set in Africa has me even more intrigued hopefully it lives up to out expectations.
Synopsis: “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.”
