Doc of the Dead, 2015.
Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe.
Apparently, this is the definitive documentary examining the rise of the zombie in modern pop culture. Hmm…
Think you know zombies? Of course you do, because no doubt you have seen Shaun of the Dead on one of its weekly showings on some made-for-twentysomethings TV channel or own one of the many DVD releases of Night of the Living Dead that likely includes a documentary or an interview with George A. Romero that covers everything you need to know about that seminal movie and the influence it has had. So what does Doc of the Dead have to offer that several dozen DVD extra features doesn’t? Not a great deal, if truth be told.

Norway continues to churn out quality horror films. From Cold Prey (2006) to Dead Snow (2009), Norway knows how to use its wild, snowy settings to create a chilling atmosphere. The latest to come from this Scandinavian country is titled Villmark 2, or Wilderness 2, or Dark Woods 2. This feature follows the original 2003 film and near the same setting. This time several contract workers must clear an ancient sanatorium, but something malicious lingers nearby. The film stars Anders Baasmo Christiansen, Ellen Dorrit Petersen, Baard Owe and Mads Sjøgård Pettersen. As well, the film has been directed by Pål Øie (Hidden). The first trailer for Villmark 2 is hosted here. From the longer synopsis, a sanatorium lies deep in an isolated forest. Here, a janitor manages the building, with five more contract workers set to remove hazardous material, including asbestos. Over a 100 rooms have to be cleaned. However, something or someone lays in wait within this ancient abode. »

Out on DVD and VOD on Monday, Doc of the Dead is the most comprehensive look at the zombie sub-genre within horror. To celebrate its release, Luke Owen sat down with director Alexandre O. Philippe to talk about the documentary, his thoughts on the genre and what’s the worst zombie movie he’s ever seen…
Lo: The film got a great reception at last year’s Film4 FrightFest (read our review here), how has the reception to the movie been for you?
Aop: It’s been great you know. We premiered at SXSW back in March and I’ve been pretty much traveling the world ever since! It’s been pretty non-stop. And the response has been great across the board and it’s been great to share it with fans and audiences around the world. »

What will February bring to Netflix? "House of Cards" returns for its much awaited third season, but not until Feb. 27. If you can't wait for your Kevin Spacey fix until then, "Now: In the Wings on a World Stage" (2014), a documentary of Spacey starring in a production of Shakespeare's "Richard III," is available on Feb. 1.
And the 2004 "King Arthur," starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley, isn't exactly Shakespearean, but look at how many great actors -- like Mads Mikkelsen, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugh Dancy and Joel Edgerton -- have gone on to much bigger things.
You can also stream "Joe," one of Nicolas Cage's best films in recent years; the overlooked indie "The Brothers Bloom" with Mark Ruffalo, Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz; and the barely-in-theaters thriller "The Two Faces of January," starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.
Here's a much larger rundown of what's new on Netflix in February 2015, provided by Netflix. »
