Zombies in SXSW First Wave!

doc_of_the_dead_posterThe SXSW film festival doesn’t kick off until March, but already zombies are being represented, although not in the usual manner.

Doc of the Dead will see it’s world premier at the annual music, film, and interactive conference and festival held in Austin, Texas and which runs March 7th to 15th.

Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, this is a documentary investigating the rise … get it … of modern zombie culture, how the genre has evolved and is influencing pop culture.  It also delves into the possibility of an actual zombie outbreak.   Obviously this was created before the current apocalypse.

Check out the trailer below:
