'Doc Of The Dead' Zombie Documentary To Premiere At SXSW

If you love (or are terrified by) zombies like we are, then you're going to want to catch "Doc Of The Dead" when it premieres at SXSW Monday March 10, then on EPIX Saturday March 15. Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, who was behind "The People Vs. George Lucas," and co-produced by Geekscape, "Doc" explores the modern zombie genre and how it evolved, and decomposed, into its current state.

According to the film's synopsis, it's "shot and edited in a cinematically edgy, high-octane style," and will host "a rich pop culture dialogue with zombie experts and celebrities, seek participation from YouTubers and indie filmmakers, and investigate the possibility and ramifications of an actual zombie outbreak."

Since the teaser trailer premiered last year, this has been one to watch for. It not only tracks the popularity of zombies and the phenomenon that surrounds them, but also includes commentary from a lot of that bring the undead to life (as does the kick-ass poster from "The Walking Dead" artist, Charlie Adlard, shown here). In fact, the film boasts a lot of friends of Paranormal Pop Culture, including "World War Z" writer Max Brooks and Matt Mogk of the Zombie Research Society, and "Zombie Autopsies" author Steve Schlozman. It also includes interviews with George Romero, Simon Pegg, Greg Nicotero, Robert Kirkman and Bruce Campbell. Actually, if you head over to "Entertainment Weekly," you can catch an exclusive clip of Brucie talking about officiating a zombie wedding.

If you need more convincing than that, watch this teaser for "Doc Of The Dead."
