Osombie movie sceneOsama bin Laden rises from his grave to continue his evil-doings as a flesh-eating zombie in the 2012 action-horror movie Osombie.

We kid you not…

Also known as Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead, the film kicks off with Colorado yoga instructor Dusty (Eve Mauro) heading to Afghanistan on a desperate rescue mission to save her brother, Derek (Jason Wade), a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama bin Laden is still alive. After arriving, Dusty falls in with a team of NATO commandos on a secret assignment and soon discovers that Derek is not so crazy after all: Osama has in fact returned from the dead and is making an army of zombie terrorists!  When the soldiers crash headlong into the growing zombie apocalypse, Dusty and the troops must destroy the root of the zombie insurgency before it infests the rest of the world.

Directed by John Lyde and written by Kurt Hale, the unrated Osombie premiered on disc in Europe in the summer of 2012 to dreadful reviews, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t poised to become a low-budget, high-camp cult favorite. In an interview with the producers, Vanity Fair hyped the film (possibly unintentionally!) as being filled with “sword-fighting, blood-splattering, head-exploding action.”

There have been no bonus features announced for the discs.

And the zombie apocalypse continues…
