The current Japanese fest fave ONE CUT OF THE DEAD isn’t the only new movie to adopt a single-take point of view on zombies; EYES OF THE DEAD brings that first-person experience later this month. Jump past the jump for the details, trailer and poster.

EYES OF THE DEAD arrives on VOD August 24 from Red Hound Films. Ben Samuels wrote and directed the movie, which stars Rosebud Baker, Matt Riker, Ben Samuels, Montana Marks and Amy Rutledge. The synopsis: “After a plague of zombies invades a family’s once-peaceful hometown, the havoc they wreak is deadly. EYES OF THE DEAD is a zombie thriller that immerses the audience in a pulse-pounding, innovative survival experience. Relying heavily on practical special effects [overseen by Steven Tolin] and a POV perspective, what you see on camera is what was filmed on that fateful day of the zombie invasion.”
