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.
