Zombie Pirates

Zombie pirates or, “pirate zombies,” are not exactly new to the horror genre. If what few remaining brain cells serve me correctly (and why wouldn’t they – I let them live), a recent example would be the cursed pirate zombies in the ba-jillion dollar Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Then there was Jolly Roger: Massacre at Cutter’s Cove (2005), which featured a ghost pirate zombie. There were more, but like I said, limited brain cell resources.

So Zombie Pirates, releasing January 21, 2014, carries on in the fine tradition of swashbuckling, swording, stabbing and, presumably, a treasure chest full of flesh-eating.

Zombie Pirates

What to expect: “A dangerous young woman offers up human sacrifices to a ghost ship of the dead in return for an ancient treasure. When she comes up one sacrifice short, her zombie masters exact their bloody revenge in this gory tribute to Spain’s popular Blind Dead Euro Horror series.”

Night of the Seagulls

A little obscure reference, but the Blind Dead series is an excellent inspirational source, i.e., Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971), Return of the Blind Dead (1973), The Ghost Galleon (1974), Night of the Seagulls (1975). In fact, I pattern my own moral stance on seagulls.

So we’re promised a dangerous young woman, human sacrifice, a ghost ship that may or may not have proper running lights, taxable ancient treasure, zombie masters (i.e., Republicans) and gory bloody revenge, the best kind of all reprisals.

P.S. Seagulls rock.
