If there’s one person you want by your side during a zombie apocalypse, it’s definitely Tony Todd, whose credits include The Crow, The Rock, the Final Destination movies, and, of course, the fabulous Candyman. And if there is one piece of machinery you want underneath your butt when the world goes to undead hell, it’s an enormous combine (or “zombine,” as you will surely soon retitle it after turning the hordes of slavering ghouls into so much fertilizer).

From exactly where am I getting these pearls of wisdom (which you should definitely be writing down)? From the just-released trailer for the new horror film, Zombies, that’s where!

Written and directed by Hamid Torabpour, Zombies costars Raina Hein (America’s Next Top Model) and Steven Luke (War Pigs). The film arrives in theaters Oct. 21. See the exclusive trailer above.
