Two New Zombie Films For The UK!

While there’s been a deluge of zombie films hitting the DVD market lately, we haven’t actually seen many get a theatrical release. But zombie fans in the UK have two new films coming their way this month alone!

Harold’s Going Stiff – Harold is suffering from an new disease that is slowly turning him into a zombie-­‐like state. A young nurse, Penny, is sent to help ease the symptoms of his illness and they become very close friends. But after a drug test goes wrong Harold’s condition deteriorates and they end up on the run from a group of violent vigilantes.

Cockneys Vs Zombies – A bunch of east-easters fight their way out of a zombie infested London, lead by an unlikely gang of amateur banks robbers and foul-mouthed plucky pensioners.

Harold’s Going Stiff has already won a number of awards at film festivals all over the world, and will be available on DVD next month. You can check the official website for a complete schedule and more information including reviews, videos and a gallery.

Meanwhile, StudioCanal will be releasing their latest zomedy Cockneys Vs Zombies to theaters on August 31st and the latest red-band trailer has already got zombie fans excited. They’ll be posting updates on their official Facebook page, including a contest to win a trip to the London premiere!

Both films apparently feature “pensioners” in starring roles, and we’re not really sure what that fad is all about. An attempt at appealing to a new demographic of baby boomers and retirees, maybe? Regardless, both films look great and we can’t wait for them to make their way across the pond!
