Official Trailer for Danish Zombie Film Escaping The Dead!

This awesome little piece of Romero-esque goodness landed in the DW Inbox yesterday and all I can say is - holy shit! Escaping the Dead is a new Danish zombie horror film based on...well, just readt the synopsis:

"Escaping the Dead is inspired by a series of articles about the death drug "Krokodil" that was published about the same period of time when Ronald Poppo had his face eaten by a naked man hooked on bath salt in Miami. It is the perfect zombie plot: a death drug that turns people into zombies. The film has its starting point in a typical day for the lead character, David. David is the local marihuana pusher, but he is the kind of dealer that smokes more than he sells. In the meantime the country has been hit by a new death drug and when David and his partner in crime Ahmir is offered some exceptionally cheap cocaine they see it as an opportunity to earn big money at the big techno concert the following Friday, but the cocaine turns out to have a terrible side effect that creates a giant zombie outbreak that spreads across the entire Copenhagen. In the film we follow David and his bloody fight out of the city.

Directed by Martin Sonntag and Bastian Brinch Pedersen, the film stars Bastian Brinch Pedersen (who is also the co-director and producer of the film) as David, Rama Øzel as Ahmir, along with Daniel Hutera, Ali Öezkan, Iben Ma Bønnelycke, Nicolai Huan Nguyen, Camilla Ludvigsen and Kim Sønderholm ("Blood Fare", "The Winedancers", "Sinister Visions") playing Lars the policeman."

Check out the trailer (yes there are some subtitles - learn to read)



No release date yet here in the states, but you can believe me when I saw that we will definitely be keeping our eyes on this one.
