If zombie teen romance isn’t your bag, you’ll be happy to know that zombies are easily shoehorned into any premise that needs a few more exploding meat buckets (also the name of my indie band/mother’s maiden name), including one in which we kill Osama again. That’s the premise of Osombie, the trailer for which appears below (actual tagline: “Osama. Will. Die. Again.”). As the disclaimer warns, it contains “scenes of violence and gore and muscular men with their shirts off.” These are a few of my fav-or-ite thiiiiings…. The thing about a plot in which Osama Bin Laden is a zombie is that it if Osama is back on Earth hunting for brains, it assumes that being knee-deep in virgin afterlife poon maybe isn’t Allah it’s cracked up to be. …Oh God, I’m sorry, that was a horrible pun. I deserve to be stoned to death for that one.

Follows Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado on a desperate rescue mission to save her crazy brother Derek, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama Bin Laden is still alive. 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 Osama Bin Laden has returned from his watery grave and is making an army of zombie terrorists.
Osombie was directed by veteran editor John Lyde, from a screenplay written by Kurt Hale. The film was independently produced, and has already been shot and edited. This is also on Kickstarter as they’re looking for funding to finish post-production sound and music. For more info on the project, visit their Kickstarter. [via FirstShowing]
Hmmm, I’m sick of zombies-as-metaphor, but I do enjoy zombies-as-excuse for exploding skulls, so this could be good.
