We haven’t had a war-themed horror flick for a few months it seems, so here’s the first trailer for World War Dead: Rise Of The Fallen to plug that gap.

Starring Wendy Glenn, who made us fans with her turn in the ace You’re Next, this hopefully puts a spin on the found footage genre, promising both gore and fun.

Here’s the synopsis:

The Battle of The Somme marked one of the bloodiest battles in human history wounding and killing 1,000,000 German and Allied soldiers in its wake.

But…there was no winner. Now, 100 years later, a documentary team – led by filmmaker Marcus Singh (RAY PANTHAKI – 28 Days Later) and Emma Washington (WENDY GLENN – You’re Next) – has travelled to the site to unveil the mysteries that led to that horrendous outcome. But what they unearth is something far worse than they could have imagined – the fallen armies, risen, with an agenda to settle the score.

‘World War Dead: Rise of the Fallen’ works on so many levels. It’s scary, its gory and has the right amount of British wit & humour to make it one of the most fun and entertaining Zombie films in ages. The cast work so well together and make you genuinely care what happens to them as they fight for their lives against some truly nasty flesh-eaters.

Its all out zombie war that will keep you on the edge of your seat, or peering from behind the sofa, throughout.

Here’s the trailer:

 

Directed by Freddie Hutton-Mills and Bart Ruspoli, the film lands on DVD on May 4.
