Another (clearer) trailer here

I sacrificed a portion of my evening for 5 nights for this and wasn't disappointed, despite being a fan of the oafish, lumbering zombie. Brooker's response to Simon Pegg's article is here, if you haven't seen it, Lex, MA!

Wow! That looks awesome. Thanks for posting about. I hadn't heard of it over here. I hope it hits DVD.
