ZONE OF THE DEAD


a.k.a. APOCALYPSE OF THE DEAD (USA/UK), APOCALYPSE OF THE LIVING DEAD (Germany)




After the Night, after the Dawn, after the Day… comes an epic fight for survival in the realm of the walking dead.


Zone of the Dead brings the world’s most famous zombie killer - KEN FOREE versus the living dead, for the first time after George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978). Also starring KRISTINA KLEBE from Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007).


Transporting a valuable human cargo of state prisoner, a group Interpol agents headed by Agents Reyes and Milius are forced to make an unscheduled detour when they encounter the remnants of a catastrophic ecological disaster. They find themselves besieged by a vast army of rampaging, blood-thirsty zombies who will stop at nothing to devour every morsel of human flesh in sight. As Reyes and Milius fight for their lives, they realize their only chance for escape is in joining forces with the treacherous criminal in their care. But this man has a past as deadly and terrifying as the monsters out for their blood.

"Apocalypse of the Dead is surprisingly entertaining and filled with genre love. There’s good action, a good story, and a lot of reverence for the genre filmmakers who inspired this production. It’s definitely a good first outing for the directors and for Serbian zombie movies." - Bloody Disgusting

“It does deliver moments of genuine dramatic tension and plenty of zombie action setpieces for fans of the genre, building to an effective action-packed climax.” – Coventry Telegraph
