Sadly many zombie films in this day and age rely on computer generated images and in turn the film suffers, or at least in my opinion it does. What ever happened to good old fashioned latex?

Well my friends, Kevin King’s latest flick, ZOMBIE HUNTER, has answered our calls as this one is full on practical effects and I am loving every single piece of this, and oh, it also stars Danny Trejo! Pretty awesome.

Below we have the first official poster and some awesome zombie photos from the film courtesy of their official Facebook page.

Synopsis: “Zombie Hunter follows the vengeful HUNTER in his journey through the post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested wasteland. Killing in the name of the family he lost, he teams up with a group of survivors and face the deadly mutations that challenge their survival.”

ZOMBIE HUNTER is written and directed by Kevin King, and stars Martin Copping, Danny Trejo, Clare Niederpruem, Jade Gordon, and Jason Wixom. The film is being produced by Kevin King, Chris Le, Rocky Mudaliar, Jason Faller, Kynan Griffin, Brian King, Spencer Bowen

Hive Films has announced that MVD has picked up North American DVD rights for British independent horror ZOMBIE UNDEAD. Produced and Directed by Rhys Davies, from a script by Kris Tearse, ZOMBIE UNDEAD is a tense and claustrophobic horror. Following a terrorist’s biological attack, a plague of the living dead is unleashed and a small band of survivors battle against the toughest odds.

Two years in the making, it was shot in England by first time film makers driven by a love of classic horror. A small central cast plays alongside the hundreds of extras who make up the zombie hoards.

Rhys Davies says: “All we had at the start was a vision. A vision to produce, as first time film makers with no budget, a great looking cinematic zombie film. Securing this distribution deal vindicates the dream. Hive Films and everyone involved with Zombie Undead is delighted to be working with MVD and to see our film released in such a key territory as North America.”

Zombie Undead was selected for screening on the opening night of FANTASPORTO 2011, which described the film as “The purest British gore you can find.”

ZOMBIE UNDEAD is slated for released on DVD and VOD this month.

DARABONT TO BRING LIFE TO ‘THE WALKING DEAD’

Frank Darabont (THE MIST, SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) will be writing and directing the mini-series version of the Image Comics hit ‘THE WALKING DEAD’ created by Robert Kirkman for AMC.

This from Shock Till You Drop:

AMC and Frank Darabont (The Mist) are inching ever so close to teaming up to adapt the Image Comics graphic novel series “The Walking Dead,” written by Robert Kirkman.

Darabont will write and direct! Incredible. It’s been rumored that the series would go to Showtime  or HBO, however, Darabont could make this work for AMC.

Variety says that Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Motion Pictures and David Alpert of Circle of Confusion are also on board to executive produce.

The story is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live.

AMC Senior Vice President of Programming Joel Stillerman said the series will stay faithful to the tone of the original novels. “This is not about zombies popping out of closets. This is a story about survival, and the dynamics of what happens when a group is forced to survive under these circumstances. The world (in ‘Walking Dead’) is portrayed in a smart, sophisticated way.”

I know I’ll sure as hell be looking forward to this one!  It’ll be fuckin’ awesome.  Forget the shitty CGI in THE MIST, Frank Darabont is one of the few directors who could really breathe life into this comic and make it a badass fuckin’ flick!
