A longtime contributor to the films of Rhode Island's richard Griffin (Exhumed, Nun of That, Atomic Brain Invasion), Nunes is bringing old friends along for the ride. Sara Nicklin and Michael Reed star, and I've loved them in the four films I've seen them in so far, so I'm on board.
I know what you're thinking. There's already enough low budget zombie movies that if one were to do nothing except watch one right after another for the rest of their life they'd barely make a dent in the pile before croaking. Most indie zombie films take themselves too damn serious. i don't think that's going to be a problem here. Check out the trailer below. The tongue is planted so firmly in cheek one may need a strong pair of hands and a crowbar to prey it from mouth.
