Why did no one tell me that George A. Romero was making another movie?! By the looks of the trailer, it will be filled with fantastical zombie killing scenes, as I have come to expect from Romero’s zombie flicks. Have I not mentioned how awesome the zombie death scenes were in Diary of the Dead?! Made the whole movie, if you ask me. You can watch the official trailer for Survival of the Dead and see for yourself just a taste of what I’m talking about:
Some people say that the “of the Dead” series has become drawn out and cliche, but I say: “NEVERRRRR!” (and shake my fist in the air). Romero’s continuing saga never fails to entertain me. I mean, COME ON! The guy’s been doing this for OVER 40 YEARS! It’s no wonder he has devised some of the most original and creatively theatrical ways to kill zombies that I’ve ever come across in the various forms of zombie media.
This, along with the fact that I personally enjoy Romero’s directorial style, has me all excited for Survival of the Dead, and I will most certainly be purchasing the DVD (to add to the collection). I would also go to see it in the theaters, but I expect it will be limited release, which means it probably won’t be in any theaters around here… we’ll see what happens this Friday (May 28). Otherwise I may have to wait until August 24 for the DVD release!
If you’re interested, you could actually watch Survival of the Dead right now on Amazon’s V.O.D. service… but it’ll cost ya… $9.99 to be exact. I’m not sure if it will still be available once the film is released, or up until the DVD release, so get while the getting’s good!
