Offering the perfect combination of jump scares, ridiculous goriness, and dark comedy, it seems like zombies will never get old. Really, there are few things more entertaining than watching a bunch of pale, dead-eyed folks lump around with their half-exposed bowels making some kind of blood-hungry gurgling sound — except maybe watching a warm-blooded character chop some limbs off said dead-eyed folks.

And there's no time like the barren period between two seasons of The Walking Dead to snoop around for more zombie flicks. Coming straight from the land down under, the witty Me and My Mates vs. the Zombie Apocalypse is coming to the US and Canada this summer, and it looks like it's worth checking out.

'The First Oz-Zom-Com'

Labelled as "the first oz-zom-com" on their YouTube page, Me and My Mates vs. The Zombie Apocalypse revolves around three clearly relaxed Australian telecom workers facing, you guessed it, a zombie apocalypse.

The Best Of Australia's Comedic Talent

The movie is carried by the comedic talent of its three main actors: Alex Williamson, Jim Jefferies, and Greg Fleet, who are some of Australia's biggest comedians.

Williamson has 66 million views on his YouTube channel, shootwilliamson, and has been doing standup shows all over the world. You might know Jefferies from episodes such as Bare on Netflix, Alcoholocaust on Comedy Central, or I Swear To God on HBO. Fleet, meanwhile, is an Australian TV sensation, and created shows such as Thai Die.

If this impressive lineup has got you convinced, get ready to pick up a copy of Me and My Mates vs. The Zombie Apocalypse on July 5, 2016. Lightyear Entertainment is releasing the movie on DVD, VOD and digital channels in the US and Canada.
