Zombie Film: The Dead

Taking a break from my usual development related posts, the sole reason for this one is to show you the trailer for The Dead – a zombie movie shot in Burkina Faso. I particularly enjoyed the shots of family courtyards, the Domes de Fabedougou, and driving through millet fields.

In the first zombie road movie set against the spectacular vistas of Africa, the Dark Continent becomes a dead zone. A stunningly shot horror fantasy announcing the arrival of the Ford Brothers on the global genre scene, THE DEAD is as much an emotional journey through terror terrain as it is a physically demanding and beautiful-looking one. Shot in life-threatening, never-before-seen locations in Burkina Faso, French-speaking West Africa, and Ghana, including the Sahara Desert, on 35mm film by the award-winning Ford Brothers, THE DEAD is one of the most unique zombie movies of all time.

    Success! I knew it’d be great when he cleans out the pockets of the the first zombie he kills and a wad of 5,000 CFA bills comes out.
