Alejandro Bruges' movie seems like a clear nod to past zom-com Shaun of the Dead. But the title (and the fact that the film seems to follow two friends (one lean and one stout) are the only similarities I can see between this film and Simon Pegg's flick. The trailer looks promising, so let's keep our fingers crossed for a new spin on the zombie craze.

Still no word about screenings yet, but we'll keep you posted. Although we suspect it will pop up at a few festivals soon.
