Being ugly has never been so stinking rotten!

As a final zombie battle looms, an ugly dude with a heart of gold, and major martial arts, dodges bullets from survivors who think he's a zed head, blends in with the Undead when he isn't bashing them, and drags along a special zombie lady and two human kids he meets, in a quest for sanctuary.

Equal parts action and comedy, with a dash of pathos and romance, the spatter is tempered by one of the most unlikely families you've ever encountered, “The Ugly Dude” takes the familiar zombie mythology to new places. It even warns you to think twice before unceremoniously disposing of that opera CD we got for your last birthday from Aunt Beulah!

Yep: Zombies, laughs, scares, action, opera, romance, a new origin story.

What more would you want?

A metaphor about the evils of prejudice? It's that too!
