Local filmmakers unleash zombie doc Doc of the Dead at SXSW

Zombies are a genuine pop-cultural phenomenon, starring in cable TV's most popular show, sitting at the center of tentpole film franchises and appearing in more video games than Mario and Master Chief combined. And now, in the brand-new Doc of the Dead, our strange cultural fascination with the undead is getting the thorough post mortem it deserves.
