Has there been anything of worth in the world of zombies in the last five years or so? It feels like the last time the walking dead were relevant was Edgar Wright’s savvy send-up “Shaun of the Dead,” with a footnote to the genre being the angry politics of George A. Romero’s “Land Of The Dead” and the popular success of empty-headed ventures “World War Z” and “The Walking Dead.” There’s no shortage of zombies in the mainstream now, and the novelty of another skin-snacking apocalypse has worn off. You really need to bring a new gimmick to the table if you’re going with zombies. Hence, one-joke premises like “Cockneys Vs. Zombies.”

Now, yet another film will dig up the undead for another twist on the brain-eaters, and we've got an exclusive clip to share.

Only a few weeks back, we were commenting on how the vampire genre, which has dominated the spookier side of cinema for the last several years, what with the likes of "Twilight" and "Let The Right One In," was seemingly giving up the ghost, as it were, with zombie movies suddenly dominating the news. On the back of the immense success of AMC's "The Walking Dead" and the recent horror-comedy "Zombieland," six projects were announced in the course of three weeks, adding to a whopping twenty already in development. Could there possibly be room for one more?
