New: Evilution

Another zombie apocalypse is underway and it’s an alien infection that’s to blame:

A microscopic alien life form has been discovered and it has the ability to possess the living and resurrect the dead. The US military has tried to communicate with it but that didn’t work so instead they’ve foolishly decided to create a genetically engineered version of the alien to bring back dead soldiers on the battlefield. Unfortunately the alien won’t be controlled, turning soldier against soldier. An idealistic scientist kidnaps the last “pure specimen” of the alien to try and reverse the damage and holes up in a tenement complex to do so. From there it’s all downhill, as the alien gets loose and starts creating a horde of zombies out of the tenants. The scientist and some survivors now have the task of destroying the infected. After all, if cannibalistic dead escape out into the city, then it’s the end for the human race.

Hmmm, where have we heard this story before? Slither meets Shivers meets Resident Evil meets any number of Night of the Living Dead‘s progeny… Plug in your own titles!

Still the trailer looks pretty good and generally speaking it isn’t originality that is driving the zombie hordes…
