More Spanish-Speaking Zombies!

OK, I know that zombies don't talk, but bear with me. I've been covering the Spanish undead flick [REC] (which is now officially being remade for American audiences by the makers of The Poughkeepsie Tapes, by the way) when along comes news of yet another living dead film, this one from Chile.
Jorge Olguin's Descendents (a.k.a. Solos) is being touted as the first zombie movie to come from South America. Apparently, it tells the story of a band of children trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world that's been ravaged by ghouls and marauding military troops. I'm a sucker for zombies, so I'm already there, but this does look pretty impressive--and the involvement of children, usually a horror movie taboo, makes it quite intriguing.
Twitch debuted the trailer yesterday, and you can check it out here:
