Dig on more info and the trailer right here!
From the Press Release: 2011 is a tough year to be a Cowboy – first facing Aliens in the Paramount Pictures summer release, the gunslingers now also have to battle zombies.
Rene Perez’s zombie western Cowboys and Zombies is being released on DVD in the UK on 1st August. The film has been described as “like Deadwood… with zombies”.
Set in 1849, it follows a bounty hunter in the old west’s Jamestown, who gets more than he bargained for when he finds the town over-run by zombies – victims of a virus unleashed by a meteor found in the gold rush.
Cowboys and native Indians unite to fight the undead horde, as guns blaze and mutants growl in this showdown for survival in the weird wild west.
Director Rene Perez said: “We have a gunslinger bounty hunter and an Apache Warrior, and although they are afraid of the zombies, they fight back in a big way. Our story starts with a group of gold miners cracking open an ancient meteor, hoping to find emeralds, but all they get are alien spores which mutate them into ravenous zombies. Our zombies/mutants are faster and stronger than humans. They just aren’t as smart.”
Left Films is distributing the film in the UK, which is now available for pre-order on Play.com and Amazon UK. It’s being released in the USA July 26th under its original title The Dead and the Damned.
