It's touted as a visceral journey across the harsh but stunning landscapes of Africa, where the sole survivor of the doomed final evacuation flight out of the continent has more than just the unforgiving terrain to deal with.
Written and directed by Howard J. Ford and Jon Ford, "The Dead" has screened at festivals such as Fantastic Fest, FrightFest and the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival.
Anchor Bay has announced the February 14th Blu-ray and DVD release of "The Dead", so fans at home will have the opportunity to see the film in a month. Here's the synopsis:
When the last flight out of war-torn Africa crashes off the coast, Lt. Brian Murphy (Rob Freeman) is the sole survivor in a land where the dead are returning to life and attacking the living. On the run in a hostile and inhospitable parched landscape, Murphy has to use his wits and ingenuity if he is to get home alive to his family. When he crosses paths with local solider Daniel Dembele (Prince David Osei), a man frantically searching for his son, they join forces. Two desperate men from two very different cultures fight side-by-side to survive across the incredible vistas of Africa as the world around them succumbs to the deadliest of viruses.
