Battlefield Death Tales retitled

Battlefield Death Tales, the Jim Eaves/Pat Higgins/Al Ronald follow-up to Bordello Death Tales, has been picked up by Safecracker Pictures, who released the previous film. But it won't be called Battlefield Death Tales. As you can see from this image, the film is now called Zombie Death Tales.

Personally, I don't think that's as good as the original title, partly because there are a million films called Zombie This or Zombie That, and partly because only one of the three stories is about zombies. Plus it takes away the distinctive aspect of the film - that these are all war stories - and aren't all zombie films 'death tales' by definition?

But I suspect that films with 'zombie' in the title sell a lot better than films with 'battlefield' in the title...

Safecracker have this pencilled in for a 13th August release.
