    Is it going to be a coherent, ongoing story or a collection of one-shot episodes, ala the Masters of Horror series? I kind of hope its the latter...

    I believe each episode is a contained story, to keep in the spirit of the magazine. On the Facebook page, they mention it's similar to Twilight Zone.

    Seems pretty cool.

    Hope this does well and is eventually aired in the US.

    I'm down. Several billion bonus points if there's animated episodes or callbacks/reimaginings of the movie stories.

    The only way I'd want to see this is if they do an expanded retelling of the B-17 zombies segment. The rest of the movie was an incoherent, smutty mess, but that one segment is easily the best part of the film, and could and should be expanded on.

    Because, c'mon. Zombies on a B-17. That. Is. AWESOME.

    It does look pretty cool, but I laughed a little at the blatant use of the TDK's theme in the first trailer.

    However, the second one using Mozart's "Dies Irae" gained a few points on my book.

    This looks really cool, hope to see it soon.

    No, it was the music used in one of (If not all.) the trailers for JJ Abrams Star Trek. I
