Teaser trailer video at the link!
Much of the planet heaved a sigh of relief last year when U.S. forces finally killed the world’s most wanted terrorist. But what if Osama bin Laden, who was buried at sea on May 6, 2011, rose from his watery grave and led a murderous zombie jihad against the West?
That is the unhinged plot of the low-budget independent film coming this summer from Arrowstorm Entertainment. Called, appropriately enough, “Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead,” the film was directed by John Lyde and stars Corey Sevier (“Immortals”) and Eve Mauro (“Land of the Lost”). In this full-length feature (which may provide the final nail on the coffin of the ubiquitous zombie genre), Mauro plays Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado (what else?), who follows her brother Derek to Afghanistan (aka the mountains of Utah). Derek, a longtime conspiracy nut, is convinced that Osama bin Laden is still alive even though he was buried at sea. And whaddyaknow! It turns out that for once Derek is on to something! Dusty soon find herself “embedded” with a group of hunky NATO Special Forces who do everything in their power to stop bin Laden’s undead terrorist army. Will they succeed before the evil leader orchestrates a worldwide zombie apocalypse? Will this film succeed where the U.S. has failed—making al-Qaeda look so ridiculous that the organization loses all credibility among its faithful followers? Or will bin Laden have the last laugh by destroying the careers of everyone involved with this thing?
The trailer has to be seen to be believed. Take a look (after the break) and decide if you want to contribute to the film’s Kickstarter campaign. The filmmakers are only $5,000 short of being able to get their film in theaters this summer. Where do I sign up?
