Beginning bright and early this Saturday morning, EPIX will host an all-day marathon of exciting zombie movies, features and exclusive interviews including the debut of director Alexandre O. Philippe’s brand new documentary Doc of the Dead. The undead invasion kicks off at 6:00 a.m. EST and will feature a number of classic (and not-so-classic) zombie films; all leading up to the world television premiere of World War Z.
In addition to interviews with Zombie Research Society founder Matt Mogk, the television network will air a special, never-before-seen introduction to Night of the Living Dead by author and zombie expert Max Brooks. Even the new grindhouse trailer for this day-long extravaganza looks amazing! So check out the complete schedule embedded below and mark your calendars right now for Zombie-thon this Saturday, March 15th.
