Check out the latest poster for George Romero’s “Survival of the Dead”. I liked the original title, “Island of the Dead” better. “Survival of the Dead” just sounds like, well, that George is running out of title ideas.
Off the coast of Delaware sits the cozy Plum Island where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O’Flynn’s, headed by patriarch Patrick O’Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headed by Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept ‘alive,’ in hopes that a solution will someday be found. The O’Flynn’s, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a cynical band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island, to find that the zombie plague has fully gripped the divided community, and the body count is rising.
Starring Devon Bostick, Kathleen Munroe, Kenneth Welsh, Athena Karkanis, Julian Richings, Alan Van Sprang, Wayne Robson, Joris Jarsky, George Stroumboulopoulos, Matt Birman, Stefano Colacitti, Heather Allin, and directed by George A. Romero.
