Re-killing Bin Laden: ‘OSOMBIE’
Now you have to admit that this looks dead-good, eh? If ever you wanted proof that you can’t keep a good man down (or a dead evil one), here it is. Osombie is an independently-produced, feature-length zombie film, packed with violence, mayhem, guns, blood and discussions about Pokemon. Oh, and zombies. Lots of zombies. We featured the first Bin-Zombie film (Zombinladen – The Axis of Evil Dead) back in September 2011, but this production takes it to a whole new level.
The story follows Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado, who is on a desperate rescue mission to save her crazy brother Derek, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama Bin Laden is still alive, despite having been buried at sea. In Afghanistan, Dusty falls in with a team of NATO Special Forces on a secret assignment. Turns out Derek is not so crazy after all, and that Osama has returned from his watery grave and is making an army of zombie terrorists. When the group crashes headlong into the growing zombie apocalypse, Dusty and the troops must find and destroy the root of the zombie insurgency before it infests the rest of the world.
Osombie is packed with desert (Utah, that is) action, cgi explosions, and cgi blood, but the fun factor is looking mighty high. It stars Corey Sevier (The Lost Future, Age of Dragons) and model Eve Mauro. It’s been shot and edited, and the filmmakers are currently seeking a post-production budget on Kickstarter.
