Independently made zombie films are the scourge of our genre. The scourge, I tell ya. I would love to see a moratorium put on them for a period of no less than five years, just to force indies to do something different. Of course, when they can put together an indie zombie movie that looks like might be something different, I’m willing to give it some gooey Dread Central loving.
Enter Zombie Allegiance, which is described by writer/director Tony Nunes thusly: ”The film takes place in a post nuclear WWIII America, where those who were not killed from the bombs were turned to zombies by a second biological attack. The world is mostly dead, and those who survived are either vigilantes or desperate survivalists. One such group of survivalists find themselves defending their lives from much more than zombies and vigilantes, when strange disappearances start to occur. Religion, politics, and the fundamental struggle of right and wrong construct a backdrop to what is much more than a zombie/slasher flick, but a true account of American values.”
See? Now that sounds like it could be a lot of fun, and the trailer you can check out below only further solidifies this belief. When you’re done, go make friends with Zombie Allegiance on MySpace, and keep your eyes open for updates!
