There’s a new trailer (embedded after the break, naturally) out for Zombies of Mass Destruction (review here) and an interview with director Kevin Hamedani. Word of warning on that new trailer — it kind of spoils a lot of the movies best gags. (Bloody Disgusting)

A few more details have emerged on the upcoming Italian zombie movie fun of Eaters (mentioned in yesterday’s news post, and there were two trailers in there, too!). It’s about a mad scientist screwing around with a zombie virus because he thinks it’s the next stage of human evolution. Not totally original, but considerably better than “four to ten random strangers hole up in a mall/theater/church/whatever to try and survive the sudden zombie apocalypse.” Dread Central has a more detailed synopsis and some cool images. (Dread Central)

Enjoy pictures of a scantily clad woman kicking zombie ass in these Resident Evil 5: Gold‘s “Mercenaries Reunion” screenshots. (Kotaku)

The zombie apocalypse comes to the Roaring ’20s (that’s the 1920s) in We Will Bury You, an upcoming comic miniseries from genre actress Brea Grant (Midnight Movie, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, Heroes) and her brother Zane Grant. Shock Till You Drop has an interview with Brea that goes into the details. (Shock Till You Drop)

Zone of the Dead, a Serbian zombie film starring none other than Ken Foree (Peter from Dawn of the Dead!), hasn’t seen release in the US but the filmmakers are going ahead with a sequel called Wrath of the Dead, which will once again star Foree.

You can already rent it from Blockbuster, by the way, so there’s no need to wait to see it. (Dread Central)
