The French Does Zombies with Paris by Night of the Living Dead

You know, I’m a fan of low-budget zombie movies, which when done right, are just really some of the greatest cinema you’ve ever seen. Okay, that’s a tad much, but they can be pretty fun. But that isn’t always the case. More often than not you get these gross-out fest that are just a waste of everyone’s time, including the dog’s. I haven’t a clue how French guy Grégory Morin’s zombie movie, “Paris by Night of the Living Dead” will turn out, but from what I can see, it sure looks like it has potential. Let’s see: hot girl with Uzi and sword — check; cool dude with chainsaw on a motorcycle — check; lots and lots of zombies to be sliced, diced, and blown up — check; pretty cool CGI effects — check.

The boys at QuietEarth wrote about this movie, and I was intrigued enough to take a gander at the 50-second blast-a-second clip below. Not a whole lot about the storyline, but really, what do you need to know? There are zombies running loose in Paris and a hot chick with guns and a sword are out to kill them. ‘Nuff said.

Starring Karina Testa, David Saracino, and a large helping of undead fiends, and directed by Grégory Morin.


Not bad, right? Here’s a 15-minutes behind-the-scenes featurette with the director and his crew on the making of the film (it’s been two years in the making!):
