Zombie Osama Bin Laden? What will they think of next? If that doesn’t draw you into “Osombie”, nothing will. Obviously, you know that this film needs to be taken with a very large grain of salt. But believe it or not, this film works.  It is a nice mix of action and horror. There are swords, guns, zombies and exploding heads.  How can you say no to all that? I mean the terror isn’t really there but the special effects are decent for a low-budget film.  Did I mention again this has a Zombie Osama Bin Laden? Shake you head if you want but this is worth checking out for a good laugh.

Officie Premise: Dusty (Eve Mauro) is on a desperate mission to rescue her brother, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama Bin Laden is still alive. In Afghanistan, she falls in with a team of Special Forces soldiers on a secret assignment. When the group crashes headlong into a zombie apocalypse, Dusty and the troops realize they must find and destroy the root of this evil before it s too late.

Believe it or not the Blu-ray presentation on this low-budget action/horror flick looks impressive.  The 1080p transfer also compliments the effect work quite well. The audio track included, DTS-HD Master Audio track, doesn’t break any new ground but works with the action scenes.  Though on the downside of this release, there are zero special features includes, as this is completely bare bones.  I was hoping for a make-up effects featurette or at least a commentary track from the director explaining himself for bringing back Bin Laden and then killing him again.  This release is still worth checking out for a decent laugh.
