World War II didn’t last as long as anyone waiting for the eventual release of Marko Mäkilaakso’s WWII zombie flick “War of the Dead”. I kid, I kid. It hasn’t been that long. It just feels like it’s been that long. But wait no longer, kids — or at least, you won’t have to wait too much longer. UK-based Momentum Pictures has announced that “War of the Dead” will be bringing the zombie war home on May 28, 2012. The press release only mentions DVD and not Blu-ray, so it appears this will only be a DVD release only.

Here’s a reminder what “War of the Dead” is all about:

At the beginning of World War II in 1939, in a secret bunker near the border of Russia and Finland, the Nazis began “Anti-Death” experiments on captured Russian soldiers. Two years later the project was abandoned with all records destroyed on the orders of Adolf Hitler and the test subjects buried in mass graves nearby.

Soon after those events, an elite squad of US soldiers is teamed up with a Finnish task force and sent on a mission to seek out and destroy the bunker along with any inhabitants remaining there. Following an ambush en route to their target, during which the Allies lose a considerable number of men, to their shock and horror they later find themselves face-to-face with the same enemy soldiers they had eliminated in the earlier skirmish. The big problem this time around is the enemy is more fearless than before and much harder to kill. After all, they’re already dead.

Starring Andrew Tiernan (300; The Pianist), Samuel Vauramo (The American), Mark Wingett (Snow White and The Huntsman; The Bill; Eastenders) and Jouko Ahola (Kingdom Of Heaven).

It looks like it’s the movie or bust, since special features include a perfunctory “Making Of” and a trailer for the movie. Official DVD cover art below:
