Osama Bin Laden is back, and this time he's dead. Or more specifically undead, rising from his watery grave to start a zombie apocalypse that only a rogue group of cheap actors soldiers can stop.
Why just have zombies when you can have zombies that will threaten the American way of life? This trailer might not show too much of the plot (probably because there isn't much of a plot), but it does give a pretty good idea of what you can expect from a film called Osombie. If you like explosions, kicking and broad racial profiling, this may be the film for you.

With a title that manages to be brilliantly obvious whilst also not making any sense (the words Osama and zombie don't really blend together naturally, do they?), what else would you expect from a director whose last film was called You're So Cupid? Despite having the effects budget of a mid season Doctor Who episode, Osombie looks like it might be fun, if not the kind of fun you're ever likely to see inside a cinema. Part of me hopes this is what became of Kathryn Bigelow's mooted Bin Laden film that was put on hold, what with him dying n'all.

One to file under "so, this is a thing", I'm still not sure if this is a good or bad idea.
