DISCOVERY SCREEN: DOC OF THE DEAD
Like it or not, the zombie is here to stay. And zombies will be setting up home in Frightfest's Discovery Screen One on Sunday 24th August at 15.30 as Alexandre O. Philippe's Doc of the Dead takes an affectionate look at the impact of the undead on popular culture. The documentary examines the journey of the zombie across all media and its rise to its indisputable 'King of the Monsters' status it holds today.
Brought to the screen by the creators of the hit documentary The People vs. George Lucas, Doc of the Dead delves deep into the evolution of the zombie genre in film and literature, as well as its impact and influence on pop culture, to deliver a comprehensive, fast-paced, highly entertaining look at a contemporary social pandemic of global proportions.
Doc of the Dead hosts a rich and entertaining dialogue with zombie authors, filmmakers and scholars, and features a host of zombie icons (Max Brooks, George A. Romero, Simon Pegg, Robert Kirkman, Bruce Campbell, Greg Nicotero, and many more!)
