It seems like forever that fans have waiting to for epic World War II zombie film War of the Dead (also known as Stone’s War) directed by award-winning Finnish music video director Marko Mäkilaakso to be completed.
Outdated clips on YouTube date back to 2008, but the multi-national co-production starring Andrew Tiernan (300) has been at least five years in the making, and is already on the record books at the most expensive film ever to be shot in Lithuania.
Finally this week came exciting news that the World Premiere of War is set for next month’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival (October 20-27). But a quick search online revealed no new artwork or official trailer. But all that changes today, as Bloody-Disgusting can now exclusively reveal to fans the official one-sheet and official teaser for the World Premiere of War of the Dead! Check out the bloody zombie Nazi action below…
“Captain Martin Stone is leading a finely-trained, elite platoon of American and Finnish soldiers as they attack an enemy bunker. Underestimating their 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 war’s most terrifying secrets and realize they have woken up a far more deadlier enemy.”
If you’re interested in catching the World Premiere of War of the Dead, the film screens Saturday, October 22, 9.45pm at Toronto After Dark Film Festival‘s Zombie Appreciation Night (fans dressed as the undead get in for a discount!) paired with an earlier show at 7pm, the Canadian Premiere of Deadheads, this year’s festival circuit crowd-pleasing undead comedy hit. The filmmakers for both movies will be in attendance! Complete festival and film information and advance tickets available from October 4 at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival website.
