"Survival of the Dead" George Romero

Get ready! George Romero does it again. According to Wikipedia, this movie's plot goes like this "On an island off the coast of North America, local residents simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while hoping for a cure to return their undead relatives back to their human state."

This is set to debut this month at the Toronto International Film Festival and will screen at the Venice Film Festival, where it will compete for the Golden Lion, the most high profile prize Romero has ever been up for.

I don't know about you, but I always hoped he had one more in him, and apparently he did! Can't wait to see it!


  1. As long as it's better than the remake of Day of the Dead and Land of the Dead. Those almost made me ashamed of being a Romero fan.

  2. I agree! The original "Day of the Dead" was creepy and cool. "Land of the Dead" was a horrible nosedive. Insiders seem to be excited about this one and as long as he remembers what freaked us out about the original "Night of the Living Dead," then it should be good. I'll probably wait until closer to release day and see what the critics think. I know a lot of them are closet "Night of the Living Dead" fans.

  3. HUGE zombie fan...when done right. Thanks for the FYI on this one. I was wondering when someone would do one where they featured them trying to undead the undead...maybe Romero will do it right.

    FYI, I also ran across another one that looks like it has potential. Colin. It's an anti-hero zombie flick...we get to follow the zombie, Colin, during his "life" as a zombie rather than the typical following people trying to dodge them. Again, was wondering why it hadn't been done yet, but now I see it has. (I think it's coming out in 2010. You might find a trailer on YouTube, but here's the film's site:

    Oh boy! Sounds great. I'll check it out. I always wanted to see one where a mother's child turns and she keeps the child hidden away from CPS and such, afraid he'll be taken away, and the husband become disgusted and she's determined to keep her only child at home. That would be so creepy. Imagine going to sleep at night with your zombie kid down the hall? Yikes!
