Just got the DVD cover art and specs for George Romero’s latest zombie opus, “Diary of the Dead” in the mail. In the film, students shooting an indie horror movie discover that the world is literally ending around them as zombies rise from the grave to, well, you know, do what zombies do — eat brains and generally cause a bad time had by all. The entire film is shot from the perspective of the cameras, and re-introduces Romero to his former independent filmmaking days. DVD cover art and specs below.
A group of film students are making an independent horror film when they become trapped in a world being consumed by flesh-eating zombies. In an obsessive, unflinching eye, one filmmaker documents each death on camera. As the lucky survivors take final refuge, the film continues to roll, recording every detail for future generations… if any survive.
