I was lucky enough to catch The Ford Brothers’ sequel to their critically acclaimed zombie hit, The Dead, at FrightFest last year. You can read my review here, and I am over the moon that I have been quoted on the front cover of the US release for the film. The Dead 2: India is an amazing horror film, and anyone who enjoyed the first film will love the sequel, and anyone with an interest in zombie films should seek this out.
The Dead 2 arrives on DVD and Blu-ray in the US on September 16th, however there are no confirmed dates yet for here in the UK. We will keep you posted.
In anticipation of the films US release, a new batch of stills from the film, and the Blu-Ray artwork, have been released, and you will find the stills and artwork above and below.
Widely regarded as one of the most popular of all the recently made zombie films, The Dead has enjoyed international praise, critical acclaim and success since its initial release a few years ago. The film was the first horror film entirely filmed in Africa. It was only fitting that the next stop be another first for the genre; India, where the challenges of filming a horror film are as unique as the dramatic setting.
The Dead 2: India was produced by Latitude Films in association with Road Trip Pictures. Howard J. Ford serves as producer, Amir Moallemi & Josephine Rose (Wiggin EP) executive produced with Jon Ford as the director of photography.
The Dead 2: India is written and directed by Howard J. Ford and Jonathan Ford, and the cast includes Joseph Millson, Meenu Mishra and Anand Krishna Goyal.
A ship docks fresh from Somalia which contains one infected worker that passes unnoticed into the very heart of India’s overpopulated bustling streets, setting off an unstoppable chain of events. Meanwhile, American turbine engineer Nicholas Burton (Millson) is working in the peaceful stunning Indian countryside when he receives a call from his love, a local girl who lives on the outskirts of the slums of Mumbai. She reveals she is now pregnant and scared for her life as chaos and terror have taken ahold of the cities as the dead return to life and attack the living. Nicholas has to battle his way across their 300 mile distance, all of which is ferociously infected. With the help of a young street kid, he has to rely on his wits and sheer brute force to try and save them all.
