Zombies are probably the only movie concept more overused than WWII, so it’s fitting that they’d eventually end up in the same movie.  This one’s called Stone’s War, formerly War of the Dead.  It premieres at Cannes and will be out in June.

"In the frozen arctic forests, Captain Martin Stone is leading an elite platoon of American and Finnish soldiers as they attack an enemy bunker. Underestimating the enemy’s strength, they are quickly beaten back into the forest. As they try to regroup, they are suddenly attacked by the same soldiers they had just killed a few minutes earlier. Forced to flee deeper into Russian territory, they discover one of the most terrifying secrets of World War II and realize they have woken a far more deadly enemy. Death is no longer the final frontier." [Source]

Wait, I thought space was the final frontier, it’s death now? Anyway, a movie about Nazi zombies that’s totally serious?  Did the guys from Metalocalypse make this?  Scandinavians are really into zombies and Satanism, and that would be cool if they had any sense of irony whatsoever.  Look guys, I just want to listen to Slayer, I don’t actually want to drink animal blood.  

I hope the apocalypse actually happens and that it’s just like an Adam Shankman movie.
