Voltage Pictures has put up a new promo trailer of Survival of the Dead, the upcoming zombie horror movie directed by zombie guru George Romero:
SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD
Plot: “On an island off the coast of North America, local residents simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while hoping for a cure to return their un-dead relatives back to their human state.”
Humor, zombies, and action: Director George Romero is bringing a quite good zombie movie. If only it was also starring the best zombie slayers ever: Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil 4) and Woody Harrelson (Zombieland)! :)
Comments Off on George Romero Survival of the Dead
A first featurette has been released for Dead of the Dead, the new zombie movie directed by George Romero (who’s like a living god in the zombie genre). The clip features some behind-the-scenes footage and also a few interviews of the film crew:

I really enjoy the part with the featured zombie Steve Barton: the big guy is talking like a kid about playing as a zombie in a movie directed by George Romero.
The movie is taking place on an island, so it’s probably local zombies we saw in this featurette of Survival of the Dead, because I don’t think zombies can swim… :)
The world could end in a cataclysmic apocalypse in 2012, but if it doesn’t then it will civilization shall fall because of an apocalyptical zombie plague, like in Survival of the Dead, George Romero’s latest zombie movie (formerly known as George A. Romero’s Island of the Dead, …Of the Dead or Island of the Dead).
Update: Here’s the first Survival of the Dead trailer:

Plot: “In a world where the dead rise to menace the living, rogue soldier Crocket (Alan Van Sprang) leads a band of military dropouts to refuge from the endless chaos. As they search for a place ‘ where the shit won ’ t get you, ‘ they meet banished patriarch Patrick O ’ Flynn (played with zeal by Kenneth Welsh), who promises a new Eden on the fishing and ranching outpost Plum Island. The men arrive, only to find themselves caught in an age-old battle between O ’ Flynn ’ s family and rival clan the Muldoons. It turns out that Patrick was expelled from the isle for believing that the only good zombie is a dead zombie, while the Muldoons think it ’ s wrong to dispatch afflicted loved ones, attempting to look after their undead kinfolk until a cure is found. But their bid for stability on the homestead has turned perverse: the undead are chained inside their homes, pretending to live normal lives – and the consequences are bloody. A desperate struggle for survival will determine whether the living and the dead can coexist.”
The only way to get rid of a zombie plague would be to nuke the contaminated areas. Taking care of the zombies, like this family does in the movie Survival of the Dead, would just hasten the end of Mankind because zombies are irrationally nasty! ;-)
