Yes, This Movie Exists: Osombie Arrives in Time For the Holidays

7 December 2012 9:04 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Sometimes, a radical terrorist has to be killed twice.

The Truth: The first trailer for zombie flick Osombie debuted in February while the movie was still searching for distribution. Now, just in time for Christmas, the DVD and Blu-Ray are being released by Arrowstorm Entertainment (December 11), a little over a week before Academy Award–winning director Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty enters theaters. Osombie will probably do little to take away from Zero Dark Thirty's Oscar heat, but is definitely trying to feed off of the movie's "hunt for Osama Bin Laden" buzz.

Elves, Dwarves, Orcs And More Go To Battle In The Shadow Cabal Trailer

14 November 2012 1:35 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

I’m sure “The Hobbit” will be great and all, but when you compare the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on those films to what the filmmakers behind the independently-produced “The Shadow Cabal” are working with, there’s no denying Arrowstorm Entertainment and Mainstay Productions know how to maximize even the smallest of budgets. From director John Lyde, the film tells the story of an agent of the Order named Keltus (Richard McWilliams) as he attempts to hunt down the mysterious Shadow Cabal. After hitting a dead end, Keltus teams up with an elven bounty hunter (Danielle Chuchran) and orc raider (Paul D. Hunt) in order to get back on the  [ Read More ]

Osombie (2012) Review

2 November 2012 10:12 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Osambie. The trouble with silly gimmicky titles is that as viewers of Nymphoid Barbarian In Dinosaur Hell will confirm theyre usually the best part of a moronic unwatchable film. Kudos to director John Lyde then for squeezing a lot from a little and giving us a good looking movie with above average zombie makeup and production values that at no point brings to mind the cheap stupid tackiness of say Nazis At The Centre of the Earth. Thats the good news. »

Watching the Clock with Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead: A Movie Review

1 June 2012 10:20 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*a screener of this film was provided by Signature Entertainment. Director: John Lyde. Writer: Kurt Hale. Cast: Corey Sevier, Eve Mauro and Jasen Wade. "Why are there no Walmarts in Afghanistan? Because, there is a Target on every corner." Sadly, this is as good as the jokes get in John Lyde's Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead. This reviewer had some hopes that this film would be a little more comedic. After all, the source material involves Osama Bin Laden returned from the dead as a zombie. Unfortunately the film focuses only on some light banter between a squad of American special forces, who are sometimes strangely shirtless. The Osombie needed a devious plan to keep events tense; maybe then, the film would not have shambled about so much. The film starts off in Pakistan at Osama Bin Laden's final hideout. The American squad goes in by »

Osombie

Stars: Corey Sevier, Eve Mauro, Jasen Wade, Danielle Chuchran, William Rubio, Matthew Reese, Andrew Hancock | Written by Kurt Hale | Directed by John Lyde

The official synopsis for Osombie goes something like this: “Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado, who is on a desperate rescue mission to save her crazy brother Derek, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama Bin Laden is still alive, despite having been buried at sea. In Afghanistan, Dusty falls in with a team of Nato Special Forces on a secret assignment. Turns out Derek is not so crazy after all, and that Osama has returned from his watery grave and is making an army of zombie terrorists. When the group crashes headlong into the growing zombie apocalypse, Dusty and the troops must find and destroy the root of the zombie insurgency before it infests the rest of the world.” However the film can be summed up more succinctly than that, »

New Posters for Dark Tide and Osombie

10 February 2012 9:23 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Halle Berry slips on a bikini for the first official poster for director John Stockwell’s “Dark Tide”, which is due out On Demand March 8th and in limited release March 30th. Basically direct-to-dvd. Remember the days when Halle Berry in a bikini would have guaranteed a wide theatrical release? Oh well. Here’s the teaser trailer in case you missed it: Meanwhile, here’s a new poster for director John Lyde’s “Osombie”, his Osama Bin Laden zombie movie that’s getting lots and lots of airplay recently even among the mainstream press. Lyde is the director of a little-known, low-budget action movie called “The Eleventh Hour” from a few years ago that I thought was pretty good, especially given the (lack of) resources he had to work with. Here’s hoping “Osombie” becomes the cult hit that he needs to make bigger productions. More “Osombie” goodness can be »

Bin Laden is Back in New Zombie Horror One-Sheet for Osombie

10 February 2012 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Welcome back for another edition of News Bits.  What is it you ask?  Well, the film world can get quite overwhelming at times in the news that releases.  Unfortunately some of this news is just too small to warrant a full article.

* Funny tweet from Marlon Wayans explaining why his character isn't in G.I. Joe 2.

Osama Bin Laden Zombie Thriller Gets A Surprisingly Cool Teaser Trailer

9 February 2012 5:51 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Did you ever wonder why our government didn.t show any real proof that despised terrorist Osama Bin Laden was killed by our special forces? The body reportedly was dumped overboard and .buried. at sea, for various reasons. Some argue that is the proper course of action for an Islamic burial. Others contend that we didn.t want a burial site to serve as a shrine for the criminal.s assorted followers. Director John Lyde has a different theory, though. He thinks we buried Bin Laden because he.d turned into a zombie. That.s the teaser trailer for Lyde.s Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead, a horror-comedy-thriller that imagines Bin Laden emerging from the sea to create a zombie apocalypse in Afghanistan. Ok, so I don.t know if it.s meant to be a comedy, but I was laughing my ass off at the sight of »

Trailer for Osombie Hunts Down a Zombie Bin Laden

8 February 2012 7:33 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

It's only been 9 months since Seal Team Six accomplished their mission to hunt down and kill Osama Bin Laden. Unfortunately, after burying the known terrorist at sea, Bin Laden has returned as a member of the undead and a Nato Special Forces team will have to hunt him down and stop a zombie apocalypse. Such is the premise behind Osombie, the indie zombie movie from producer-director John Lyde (You're So Cupid!) and screenwriter Kurt Hale (Church Ball).

Osombie is one of two movies involving Bin Laden — The Hurt Locker's Academy Award–winning director and screenwriter Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal have been working on an untitled thriller about the terrorist since before the May attack that ended his life. We're going to guess that Bigelow's project is the more serious of the two, since the Osombie trailer (via SlashFilm) is filled with A) a zombie Osama Bin Laden, B »

Trailer: Bin Laden is Back in Osombie

6 February 2012 11:37 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Osama Bin Laden is back.  Except, this time, he's a zombie in the indie horror film Osombie.  No, we're not making this up.  

The film is currently in post-production and a trailer has been released.  Surprisingly, the production value is fairly solid and it approaches the material with a straight face.  Eve Mauro co-stars; you might remember her from Wicked Lake.  And Corey Sevier, of the upcoming Apartment 1303, is the leading man who finds every chance to tear off his shirt.  Behind the camera is director John Lyde.

After the jump, find a full synopsis and the trailer itself.

6 February 2012 12:16 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Someone's going to have to say... enough!" You've got to see this, I can't believe it's even real! Osombie is a feature-length zombie film, packed with "violence, mayhem, guns, blood and discussions about Pokemon. Oh, and zombies. Lots of zombies." Starring Corey Sevier and Eve Mauro, the project is some wild action B-movie about Osama Bin Laden who returns as a zombie, and some guy and girl who go to Afghanistan to find and kill him and his zombie horde. While the film is shot and edited, it has a Kickstarter to collect more funds to finish, but this teaser trailer (via Tmb) has actual footage and effects, and it looks crazy. Have fun!
