Romero’s Survival of the Dead Gets Release Date

4 Comments

For a while there it didn’t seem like George Romero’s ridiculously titled “Survival of the Dead” would ever see the light of day, or if it did, it would be doing so on DVD shelves everywhere. Thanks to the folks at Magnolia Pictures, though, you can expect to see “Dead” in theaters May 28, 2010, or if you’re really anxious, catch it when it lands on Video-on-Demand a full month earlier on April 30, 2010. Releasing a film on VOD months before its theatrical release date used to be an anomaly, but it’s become pretty routine in recent years.

In Romero’s latest “Dead” entry, survivors of a zombie plague find themselves on an island where the inhabitants are trying to co-exist with their dead relatives. Obviously, things go awry pretty fast.

Here’s the unofficial trailer for “Survival of the Dead” in case you missed it:

    saints preserves us but this actually looks good…enough humor alone to make it worth the price of a rental at the very least…I like the guy lighting his smoke on the flaming head…too funny….

    This looks strained i hate to say! Romero has been a hero of mine since i was a kid (a long time ago!) his films always had a political understatement, they had meaning and a serious one at that, which always gave the fantastical side of the film an edge of realism, in other words more SCARY! this looks run of the mill, effects for effects sake and stupid humour that spoils a good horror film or in this case a franchise! Just like the master John Carpenter, ideas must just run out and then you cash in! Dario Argento is another, amazing ground breaking earlier stuff then ……YAWN! no originality. Sad, but thats life i suppose, i wont be rushing to see this. When did humour become a neccessity of horror films? Oh yes, when they tried get past censors.
