A Utah production company announced today that it has shot a movie based on the premise that Osama bin Laden rises from his watery grave and leads an army of zombie terrorists in a violent jihad of the undead.

In the feature-length film, "Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead," a NATO Special Forces unit races to defeat zombie bin Laden and his flesh-seeking militia, while also stopping the infection from spreading to even more terrorist corpses.

According to the film's executive producer, Kynan Griffin, the script was written before the real al Qaeda leader was killed last May; once that happened, Griffin said, it was "too good to pass up."

"We've just had a lot of fun with it," Griffin said. "We had some great special effects makeup people that had done a lot of Hollywood work. Lots of actions, lots of zombie violence."

Griffin also said that despite the film's unconventional plot, its feedback thus far has been "overwhelmingly positive."

"We have the view that we are not going to please everyone with any film, but with this we know there are a group of people who will love it and those who will not love it," he said.

The low-budget film is being released by Arrowstorm Entertainment, a production company that has previously made fantasy and sci-fi movies. It was filmed entirely in Utah last November and is set to be released sometime this summer.
