The Dead, the zombie film set in Africa, is set to play Film4's Frightfest and Fantastic Fest in the very near future -- and I'm hoping that reports from people who get the opportunity to see it are positive because this new trailer makes the film look like one of the best zombie movies ever.
Directed by the Ford Brothers, the story focuses on an American engineer who crashes off the coast of Africa. He teams up with a local military man in order to try to find the man's son and figure out a way to get back to America -- but they'll have to traverse the deadly African landscape while fighting off hordes of flesh-eating zombies.
Early trailers for the film were impressive, but this new clip is easily the best of the bunch. The creepy African zombies are a fantastic addition and the story looks surprisingly compelling too. Truthfully, it reminds me of Capcom's Resident Evil 5 .
Twitch was kind enough to share the new clip, which you can check out after the jump. If you love zombie films, I think this is one you're going to be very excited about. Now let's all just hope the full film is as good as the new trailer.
