Even more upcoming zombie goodness

I now officially declare Europe as the sovereign of the Zombie Movie Kingdom. As if Shaun of the Dead and Rec (and most probably Rec 2) weren’t enough, here are three more to whet your appetite for undead action.

You are right about one thing – it is awesome. It’s one of the best zombie films I’ve seen in any language! Kudos to the French for making such a cool movie.


  4. […] This action packed French zombies/cops/robbers film is one of my favourites. I posted on it on December 3rd 2009 and later did a full review on it. Get it, it’s available on […]
