Exclusive video: Tom Savini speaks for EPIX’s Zombie-Thon

SAVINIEPIXZOMBIELETTERFEAT

The EPIX HD channel is being taken over by the undead this Saturday, March 15, with movies and a new documentary on tap. Tom Savini, one of the guiding forces of the modern genre, recorded a special video to promote it, and we’ve got it exclusively past the jump.

Savini reads a letter from the “Zombie Wars” in the clip, which is appropriate, as WORLD WAR Z author Max Brooks will introduce George A. Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD during EPIX’s Zombie-Thon, which will also host the world television premiere of the epic WWZ movie. Also premiering that night, at 8 p.m. EST, is DOC OF THE DEAD, an original documentary from the creators of THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS featuring words with Romero, Brooks, Savini, Bruce Campbell, Simon Pegg and Greg Nicotero. Here’s the complete Zombie-Thon schedule (all times EST):
