EXCLUSIVE: A clip from the SXSW zombie doc DOC OF THE DEAD!!!
Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here.
Well, the SXSW Film Festival gets rolling one week from today, March 7-16 in the great city of Austin, Texas. A great number of Ain't It Cool regulars will be on hand covering the films, talking to filmmakers and actors, and maybe even slipping into a panel or two at the Convention Center. I've been previewing a few titles over the last couple of weeks, and one of my favorite documentaries that I've seen so far is one that you will also have the chance to see in mid-March.
DOC OF THE DEAD is something of a definitive overview of zombie is pop culture, which of course begins with tales of voodoo spells and potions, and some of the earliest examples of zombies in film (including PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE) to the most recent examples of zombie culture, including the WORLD WAR Z film and "The Walking Dead" series to zombie walks and zombie weddings officiated by Bruce Campbell.
Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe (THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS), the film includes some truly terrific and insightful interviews with the likes of George A. Romero, Max Brooks, Greg Nicotero, Simon Pegg, Tom Savini, Robert Kirkman, Stuart Gordon, Alex Cox, and several of the actors on NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
DOC OF THE DEAD premieres at SXSW on March 10 and on EPIX on March 15, during the channel's 24-hour Zombie-thon, and we just happen to have an exclusive clip from the film. Please enjoy some of our favorite talking head discussing what their survival strategy would me if zombies really did roam the earth.
