Zombies 'Play Dead' in new football film

Before this week, I hadn't heard much about Play Dead, but after munching on the film's Web site, I'm digging this "Friday Night Lights of the Living Dead" football/zombie flick.

Based on Ryan Brown's new book, the horror comedy is about high school football team, the Killington High Jack Rabbits, murdered by rivals. When the players rise as walking dead zombies, they decide to exact revenge and save their souls in one last big game "of salvation and damnation."

The movie premieres at New York City's Zombie Crawl on May 30, which looks friggin's sweet, and the trailer follows after the jump.
