I always thought that a great concept for a zombie film would involve Edward James Olmos showing up and using unconventional teaching methods to educate the undead about calculus. Nevertheless, the genre is still running strong thanks in part to upcoming zombie movies like the new German flick Rammbock. It’s like Rambo, but with a few extra letters. Okay, not really.
Just when Michael arrives in Berlin to visit his ex-girlfriend Gabi, a terrible virus starts spreading across the city at a rapid pace, turning people into mindless homicidal maniacs. Much to Michael’s concern, Gabi’s not home; instead, he meets Harper, a teenage plumber’s apprentice at work in her apartment block. Together, they manage to barricade themselves when raging hordes of infected people swarm the building. Surrounded by these thirsty zombies, Michael and Harper have their hands full to survive – and it will take all of their ingenuity to make their way out to try and find Gabi. [QuietEarth]
Trailer looks promising, though not exactly a *cough* game changer. But I will admit that the concept for a zombie film about survivors who blockade themselves indoors does sound intriguing…certainly not Edward James Olmos using unconventional methods to teach calculus, but still pretty good.
Head on over to Undead Backbrain for a collection of movie stills from Rammbock.
