Dawning of the Dead gifts a zombie apocalypse this Christmas

Dawning of the Dead Tony Jopia

Uncork'd Entertainment has a special gift for horror fans this Christmas season: a zombie apocalypse. The distributor is set to release director Tony Jopia's zombie film DAWNING OF THE DEAD this December, just in time for the holidays.

Starring Honey Holmes, Leo Gregory, Pixie Le Knot, and Sean Cronin, this movie is not only just three letters off from having the same title as one of the horror genre's all-time greatest films, but it also has a female lead who works in TV news, just like the heroine in George A. Romero's classic DAWN OF THE DEAD.

The story of DAWNING OF THE DEAD: 

While a virus that causes the dead to reanimate brings the world to its knees, the scientist responsible entrusts his cataclysmic findings to Katya Nevin, a troubled ex-war correspondent turned anchor-woman at W.W News. While she and the rest of her crew witness the collapse of society via video feeds from around the globe, a deadly special agent climbs the building floor by floor, his only goal to ensure her silence. Armed only with information and an indomitable will to live, Katya must overcome her crippling anxiety and learn to lead in order to make it out of the studio and into a terrifying new world where only the dead survive. 

The trailer and poster art for DAWNING OF THE DEAD can be seen below. If you like what you see and/or enjoy it when films have mockbuster-esque elements, look for this one when it receives a digital VOD release on December 5th. A DVD release will follow on March 6th.
