DOC OF THE DEAD to Infect Hot Docs Film Festival

What better place than Toronto -- the home of the first ever recorded "zombie walk" -- for a documentary about zombie culture to have its International Premiere?

Alexandre O. Philippe's "definitive zombie culture documentary" Doc of the Dead will be infecting the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival and raising corpses from their graves for its International Premiere: Saturday, April 26th at 12am midnight.

Brought to the screen by the makers of THE PEOPLE vs. GEORGE LUCAS and shot and edited in a cinematically edgy, high-octane style, DOC OF THE DEAD hosts a rich pop culture dialogue with zombie experts and celebrities, such a George A. Romero and Simon Pegg, and investigates the possibility and ramifications of an actual zombie outbreak.

*Attending Hot Docs: Director Alexandre O. Philippe*

Premiere - Sat, Apr 26 - 12:00AM Midnight - Bloor
Screening 2 - Sun, Apr 27 - 9:30PM - Hart House
Screening 3 - Sat, May 3 - 9:45PM - Royal

Doc of the Dead will have a special 1-week digital release on iTunes 24 hours after it's Hot Docs premiere on Sat, April 26.

  1. Zombie culture is quite varied, with people of all political and social stripes finding themselves drawn to these stories. We are actually urban liberals who write zombie fiction and keep a bug out bag in our luxury skyscraper apartment.

  2. Very enjoyable trailer for what looks like a well put together documentary about the zombie-culture. I particularly enjoyed the bit about throwing pizza rolls at the chained up zombie hooker to get her to shut up. Very clever.

    Thanks for bringing my attention to this and for sharing the trailer. I'll look forward to checking it out.

    Thanks also for your ongoing work providing high quality entertainment and information on us freaks who still think zombies and the related sub-culture are cool. You've been doing this for years and it's appreciated.
