The living dead return to Blu-ray at the end of the month!

In an early announcement to retailers, the Asylum will be releasing 'Zombie Apocalypse' to high-definition on December 27.

Golden Globe® winner Ving Rhames ('Pulp Fiction'), Taryn Manning (TV’s “Hawaii Five-0,” “Sons of Anarchy”) and Leslie-Ann Brandt (TV’s “Spartacus”) battle the living, feeding nightmare in 'Zombie Apocalypse.' The cast also includes Eddie Steeples (TV’s “My Name is Earl”), Johnny Pacar (TV’s “Make It or Break It”), Gerald Webb ('Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus,' 'Battle of Los Angeles') and Anya Monzikova ('Iron Man 2').

The film, which debuted October 29, 2011, as part of Syfy Network’s Saturday Original Movies, garnered the most watched Saturday Original movie of the year among adults 18-49 and 25-54, with 2.1 million total viewers.

Ramona (Taryn Manning), Billy (Eddie Steeples) and Kevin (Gerald Webb) have just come down from a hideaway in the mountains months after a zombie apocalypse. They are immediately beset by a dozen zombies and rescued by Mack, Cassie, Hammer, and Julian who are on their way to Catalina Island, the last refuge of humanity. They take the newcomers under their wing as they hunt for supplies, kill massive amounts of zombies, and try to survive.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is only $24.95.
