Must-See: Jurassic Park meets The Walking Dead in The Jurassic Dead Trailer

Published

on

“Evil Always Finds a Way…”

I think I have a new must-see movie.

It’s called The Jurassic Dead and is it, duh, part Jurassic Park and part “The Walking Dead” in that it features a T-Rex that turns those it attacks into zombies!

Talk about a winning premise. Personally, I’d love to see more quality filmmakers take on films like this. After all, it was a f*cking blast to see Mike Mendez’s Big-Ass Spider.

Anyhow, today we have The Jurassic Dead‘s first trailer and poster for, not only your own viewing pleasure, but I’m sure the viewing pleasure of all your unsuspecting friends/family members on social media.

You can check out the glorious poster to the right and the silly-ass trailer below. Like ’em, love ’em, share ’em, and then let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Milko Davis and Thomas Martwick from a script by Producer Michelle Pacitto and stars American professional bodybuilder/Producer Andy Haman, Cooper Elliott, Shale Le Page, Ruselis Perry, Mia Klosterman, and Nicole Goeke.

Wild Eye Releasing will release The Jurassic Dead in the U.S Summer 2018.

Synopsis:

A unit of mercenaries must team up with a group of tech-geek students after American is struck with an EMP attack. Deep in the desert, they find the source of the terror, a mad scientist who has also just created a living dead T-Rex dinosaur, one who turns everyone it attacks into a zombie. Now they must scramble to stay alive and save the planet from the ultimate undead predator.
