The folks at Genius Products informed us today that The Mad, the new zombie flick starring Billy Zane that we last told you about right here, is being released direct to DVD on May 22nd. Genius promises “heaping helpings of gore with gut-wrenching sound effects, gallons of goopy blood, and over-the-top special effects.” Maybe this time the increasingly ubiquitous “unrated” tag will actually mean something.
The first look at the DVD artwork can be found to the right, and the disc’s special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette and a deleted scene. Not a whole helluva lot, but then that’s what you get when you’ve got to set aside a budget to pay Billy Zane. Great to see him back doing horror again!
For those who have forgotten, The Mad follows a doctor (Zane) and his daughter as they set out for vacation, being waylayed at a truck stop when a zombie outbreak, caused by diseased meat, looks to ruin their time together.
