Out to prove that not only animals can be turned into bizarre hybrids, THE BURNING DEAD sets out to create some messed up zombies!! THE BURNING DEAD comes to us from director Rene Perez, writers Jason Ancona and Jeff Miller, and stars Danny Trejo, Thomas Downey, Moniqua Plante, Nicole Cummins, Kevin Norman, Robert F. Lyons, Kyle T. Heffner, Julia Lehman, Tom Nagel, Jenny Lin, Robert Amstler, and Morgan Lester. Ready for the plot crunch? Are you sure?? Okay, here it is:
THE BURNING DEAD pits a a horde of lava-filled zombies against a sheriff charged with the plight to rescue an estranged family from a volcano eruption. Trejo plays Night Wolf, a Native American warrior who knows way too much about the curse that unearthed the coffin dodgers.
Move over SHARKTOPUS … get outta the way ARACHNOQUAKE … piss off SHARKNADO. Now there’s lava-filled zombies to f**k up your day!! THE BURNING DEAD comes to us from the same team who brought us AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN, which was surprisingly well-written and gory. Uncork’d Entertainment is releasing THE BURNING DEAD (formerly titled VOLCANO ZOMBIES) on March 3, 2015 on various digital platforms and VOD and will then release it on DVD on April 7, 2015.
Check out the trailer below and some stills from the film. The trailer carries the original title, VOLCANO ZOMBIES, but I think you’ll get the idea!!
