It's A Civil War/Zombie Movie For Pete's Sake!

After a particularly trying week (lots of funerals, an observed holy day of obligation, vows Mass for the SLC lay Carmelites, and a couple of Masses in the Extraordinary form--take that Trautperchild), I am down at mom's and I just watched The Grey Knight (aka The Killing Box). To my knowledge, this is the only occupant of that most esoteric of genres; the Civil War/Zombie movie. The plot is interesting--a battle accidently unleashes forces that turn a Confederate brigade into zombies (albeit intelligent, talking zombies). It is up to a Union officer and his Confederate mentor to stop the menace. It is minimally gory, has some good chills, and has a fairly engaging plot. I first saw it about 10 years ago on HBO. This is the director's cut. Give it a try.
