Be prepared for a Zombie invasion as Saturday nights in March on Horror Channel give rise to Season of the Dead, a collection of modern zombie movies. Highlights include the channel premieres of critically-acclaimed Maggie, a heart-breaking take on the Zombie genre starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joe Dante's Burying The Ex, a radical blend of classic horror and screwball zomedy. There are also welcome returns for post-apocalyptic zombie actioner Extinction, directed by Inside helmer Miguel Angel Vivas, Matthias Hoene's ultra-splatter comedy horror Cockneys Vs Zombies starring Michelle Ryan and John Erick Dowdle's [REC]-inspired Quarantine.

Zombie Project Ltd has joined forces with producer/director Juliane Block (8 Remains, 3 Lives) on a Brit Indie zombie action thriller, Hobbes House.
Starring Mhairi Calvey (Abduct, Eden Grey), Kevin Leslie (Rise and Fall of the Krays), Makenna Guyler (King of Crime) and Waleed Elgadi (A Hologram for a King), the three-week shoot commenced on February 17 in locations around Bristol.
Hobbes House concerns down-on-her-luck Jane Dormant (Mhairi Calvey) who learns about the death of her Grandmother, and travels to a remote estate to attend the reading of the will. She's expecting a life-saving inheritance, but the trouble is, so is Jennifer (Makenna Guyler), her estranged and more successful half-sister, who has arrived with her lover Nigel Thatcher (Kevin Leslie) in tow. But when a storm cuts the estate off from the outside world, the brewing family tensions have to be put to one side when a horde of blood-thirsty zombies invade. And it's not the money they're after...
Writer and director Juliane Block said: "I started my film career in 1999 with Zombie make-up. I'm so thrilled, now, after 20 years to return to my roots, and to shoot an entire feature on British soil, one of the greatest countries for Indie horror films!"
