Bio-terror. Zombies. South Africa.

The newest zombie film to come out of South Africa looks chaotic, intense, and is definitely something that will bring people to the cinema.  The movie is titled Last Ones Out and was directed by Howard James Fyvie, and stars Christia Visser, Greg Kriek, Mfihlakalo Mazwembe, Tshamano Sebe, Vukile Zuma, and Jack Hein.

Synopsis:

Imagine waking up after an operation in a dirty hospital in a foreign country and realizing that you are completely alone. You scream until your voice goes hoarse, only to be rescued eight hours later by a young doctor covered in blood.

For Henry, an American visiting Southern Africa, this is no bad dream. Instead, this is his reality. After waking up alone, he finds himself caught in the middle of an African viral outbreak that has swept across the entire region. Aided by three others – Sunet – the young doctor, Siseko – an older hospital worker – and Vincent his nephew – the party must journey across an empty African region to the central evacuation point in time to make it out alive.

However, along the way they discover that they are not alone. Something unnatural is hunting them. Something that will not stop. Something that is no longer human. Forced to work as a team, Henry and Sunet draw closer together as their love relationship gets pushed to the test in this action-packed character-driven story from breakout director Howard James Fyvie. Last Ones Out is a thrilling road-movie through the wild and untamed landscapes of a deadly and infected Africa. The question on everyone’s mind is… will they make it out alive?

Last Ones Out premiered in Cannes earlier this year, and has since had several screenings in Capetown, South Africa.  No word yet on a United States theatrical release, but let’s keep our hopes up.  In the meantime, here’s the trailer:
