The Dead is, unsurprisingly, one of the most critically acclaimed zombie movies in recent years. For it takes the genre back to its roots by -- if its press release is to be believed -- being the first horror movie entirely shot in South Africa. The film is due on DVD and Blu-ray on February 14th from Anchor Bay (and is there a better way to say "I love you" than with zombies?). After the jump, check out The Dead's trailer and Blu-ray cover art, as well as a gallery of images.
What's The Dead about? Here's the film's synopsis...
When the last flight out of war-torn Africa crashes off the coast, Lt. Brian Murphy (Rob Freeman) is the sole survivor in a land where the dead are returning to life and attacking the living. On the run in a hostile and inhospitable parched landscape, Murphy has to use his wits and ingenuity if he is to get home alive to his family. When he crosses paths with local solider Daniel Dembele (Prince David Osei), a man frantically searching for his son, they join forces. Two desperate men from two very different cultures fight side-by-side to survive across the incredible vistas of Africa as the world around them succumbs to the deadliest of viruses.
