New Release: Platoon of the Dead

Platoon of the Dead (US-2009; dir. John Bowker and Joe Sherlock) -- released on DVD.

Three soldiers must fight to survive the night in a seemingly abandoned house, when a zombie platoon attacks.

It stars ARIAUNA ALBRIGHT (Polymorph), TOM STEDHAM (Torment), CHRIS KEOWN (Uncle Bingo), MICHELLE "AME" MAHONEY, TYLER DAVID, AMANDA BOUNDS and JONATHAN JACOBY. Executive Producer is J.R. Bookwalter; Written by John Bowker; Produced and Directed by John Bowker and Joe Sherlock.
Nice to see a film abandoning the current fad for making the cause of the zombie plague an infection -- whether "natural" or by way of biological-warfare research gone wrong. This looks distinctly supernatural, which appeals to me.
