ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction
Every year the After Dark Horrorfest terrifies audiences (or at least tries to) with a crop of indie flicks that would normally never see a theatrical release. Up until now said movies have only been available on DVD, but word has just come they're headed to Blu-ray in special double feature editions this January!
Definitely the biggest DVD release this week is the After Dark Horrorfest box set with, if not eight films worth dying for, at least a couple that are worth your time; and the fun of the thing is figuring out which ones they are. But that's not all that's coming out March 23rd; read on for the rest.
It's that wonderful time of the year again! As of March 23rd you'll be able to take home either the entire set or just your favorite movies from this year's After Dark Horrorfest 4, and we've put in the hours to find out what is worth your time and what was best left dead and buried. Dig it, baby!

Get ready, kids, as we have yet another trailer debut for one of the eight films to die for showing during the After Dark Horrorfest 4! This one has the lovely living dead flavor we all crave so very much! Are you ready for the Zombies of Mass Destruction?
Horrorfest 4 kicks off in exactly two weeks, and no doubt many of you have been wondering if it'll be happening in your home town ... and if not, how far will you have to travel to be a part of it? Well, wonder no more as After Dark Films has released its up-to-date list of cities and locations for the fest.
Yesterday we showed you the official Horrorfest 4 poster for The Final, and today we got a peek at the one-sheet for the "political zombedy" known as ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction.
Just as we suspected upon first learning that ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction had been acquired by After Dark Films, it was confirmed today that the "political zombedy" is the fifth film scheduled for Horrorfest 4, After Dark's one-week nationwide film festival (aka 8 Films to Die For) that's running from January 29nd to February 4th in 2010.
Not only has ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction gotten a rating by the MPAA, but this news also yielded another interesting tidbit of info -- it seems that the self-professed political zombedy was acquired by After Dark Films. Does this mean that it will be one of the "8 Films to Die For" in this coming January's After Dark Horrorfest IV? Probably, but let's wait for the official announcement, shall we?
Remember when were talking about Red 5 Comics' ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction being turned into a feature film? Well, this isn't it. Instead it's the trailer for another film of the same name that was already in production at the time of that announcement. Confused? Us too.
The writers of both Outlander and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which both managed to come out on the exact same day, have been announced as nabbing scripting duties for ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction, the Red 5 comic created by Underworld trilogy star Kevin Grevioux.
I’ve always said one sure way we could get out of this conflict in the Middle East is if we could somehow send over a squad of zombies to take care of our enemies. The creators of the comic ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction agree with me, as do the folks at Benderspink, who’ve just nabbed the movie rights for the Red 5 comic according to Variety.
