Romero Hoping to Shoot Two More 'Dead' Films Back-to-Back

George A. Romero

There is no other name more synonymous with zombies than the legendary George A. Romero. His 6th "of the Dead" zombie film, Survival of the Dead, is finally due out in theaters later this month. But what's next? Well, our friends from ShockTillYouDrop just walked out of an interview with Romero earlier today and learned that he has "ideas for at least two more Dead projects that he would love to shoot back-to-back, schedule permitting." Of course, it depends on the success of Survival, but if it does well, "he says returning for two more entries would feel like home to him & bringing his family back together." Sounds good to me!

STYD also learned from Romero in the interview that these next two prospective films will "push the news ideas he's applied to the undead in Survival." I won't ruin what that idea is in Survival, but once you see it, it will all make sense, although I think he has plenty of ideas to run with (besides the one I'm thinking of) after Survival. The first four of the Dead films followed a big arc and presumably he'll finish another story arc with these four (including these final two). If you're a big fan of Romero and want to see more zombie movies from the legend, then you better make sure you hit theaters later this month when Survival arrives.

He'll keep going till he's Undead. Congrats on the next zombie movie, his movies keep the good horror theme that most modern one's fail to do (like Saw). Glad to be a true horror fan.

Loving it! They've all been enjoyable...not in theaters, but at home some late night with popcorn and a girl to grab hold of ya 'cause they jump at everything! lol Land was the only lame one and lame is being generous.

Land was way better than Diary. Way, way better. I haven't seen Survival yet, but I hear it's not much better than Diary.

So have you seen survival Alex? What'd you think of it? Been on the fence about watching it; I love Romero, but diary was awful.

Land was a turd compared to diary

Jimmy Love on May 11, 2010

No way! Diary was boring as hell. What did it have, maybe 5 or 6 zombies in it? And lame zombies at that. At least Land had zombies, and action, and interesting characters, and some kind of a semblance of a plot. Instead of Diary of the Dead, they should have just called it Diarrhea of the Dead.

It really irks me when people try to call this shit "true horror". Horror is supposed to scare you. Romero's films may have been considered frightening back when his ideas were fresh in the 60's and 70's, but today they are just pure garbage. It's not horror if it can't scare you, and if something gets overused as much as zombies people just stop caring. It eventually just boils down to people enjoying these movies because of the cheesy death scenes. Romero is starting to use his zombie franchise the way Lucas uses Star Wars. Please do something new.

Patton Oswalt said he wished he had a time machine, because he would go back to the early 90's and kill George Lucas with a shovel, I wish someone did the same with George Romero.

I saw a screening of Survival of the Dead. Avoid it as much as you can. It sucks so, so bad. It will destroy your life. A quote from a viewer who was exiting the screening after me: "That was awful... that was like an abortion. How can you make both the best zombie movie ever and the worst?"
