Exclusive: The Elderly Fight The Undead In Clip From Horror Comedy 'Cockneys Vs. Zombies'

Zombies! You can’t stop the slow, steady lurch of films in this horror genre, and this year alone we’ve seen them fall in love and wreak unholy apocalypse across the entire world. Now, yet another film will dig up the undead for another twist on the brain-eaters, and we’ve got an exclusive clip to share.

Cockneys Vs. Zombies” finds the very specific locale of London’s East End dealing with the problem, and the comedy riff from director Matthias Hoene has some fun with the concept. Former “Bionic Woman” Michelle Ryan, Harry Treadaway (“Control,” “The Lone Ranger“) and Rasmus Hardiker (“Your Highness“) star in the film penned by James Moran (“Severance,” episodes of “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood“), which puts some bank robbers into the unlikely position of squaring off against some zombies. In the scene below, we witness the residents of The Bow Bells Care Home getting in on the action and disposing of these invaders with some rather creative methods.

“Cockneys Vs. Zombies” opes on Friday, August 2nd in select cities nationwide and Video on Demand.
