Medieval zombie romp (yep, you read that right) Knight Of The Dead will hit DVD shelves in the UK on July 1, it has been announced.

Released by Signature Entertainment, a trailer has popped up showing just what gut-muncher fans can expect from this opus, and it seems to be a cheap-and-cheerful approach, some corny dialogue and plenty of entertaining on-screen carnage.

The plot seems interesting enough – a band of crusading knights, escorting the holy grail through a valley of black death, happening upon an outbreak of the undead, so we shall certainly give this a watch.

Directed by Mark Atkins, who has worked on the likes of Jack The Giant Killer and the Haunting Of Winchester House, the horror flick stars the likes of Feth Greenwood, Dylan Jones and Lee Bennett.

    Couple of banal lines,random murder of a baddie, make a lifelong enemy (some fat bloke who seems to be able to run marathons alongside his grandad – no problem catching up with the others at all
    wrong turn into zombie land – in spite of the large ‘Watch out for the zombies’ notice – probably in Welsh
    Bit of Michael Jackson lookalike thing going on – randon eating of healthy armored fit young lads by shuffling white painted ARRGHHH OHHH “i’m a zombie” types.
