George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead Trailer

This is another new trailer in the same vein as Paranoid Park where I really don't like the movie much but will still gladly run the trailer. Diary of the Dead is zombie master George A. Romero's newest zombie flick, and is an incredibly independent creation with the concept (very similar to Cloverfield) of a guy who tapes a zombie invasion with his handheld camera as he rides in his RV from the countryside to his home. The problem is that the concept was executed terribly and failed - and the film fell apart with the addition of talking-to-the-camera commentary and extensive political undertones.

You can read my full review for the film from the Toronto Film Festival here. Otherwise, take a look at the trailer, as introduced by George A. Romero himself, and let us know what you think.

Watch the official trailer for George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead:

Diary of the Dead was both written and directed by zombie master George A. Romero, of Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Land of the Dead. The movie arrives in theaters on February 15th. Diary of the Dead also debuts at the Sundance Film Festival in a couple of weeks, but given that I saw it in Toronto, I won't be seeing it again.

I'll check this out when it hits theaters even tho I thought Land of the Dead was pretty bad. I think people will try to say this is a rip of Cloverfield with zombies due to the handheld type of filming.

The movie looks cool. I'll give it a shot, I just hope this film won't disappoint me. I thought Land of the Dead was pretty bad. Although, anything he does has to be of better quality than the crappy Day of the Dead sequel that never made it to theatres and is now being released to DVD. btw, I hope they show all the other entires of the contest somewhere ( which they probably will) so we can see all of them.

It's Romero, it's zombies, I'm in.

Would someone buy George a new pair of glasses? And, please, tell him to stop looking over the top of them when he talks to you. He looks like my Grandma trying to see over the steering wheel. Seriously though, the trailer looks like it might be decent, but based on Alex's comments and review, I think that this will probably end up on my wait-for-DVD list.

Mostly of the zombie films is not good for me but I really enjoy Resident evil movie.

Looks like a wait-for-DVD-movie. After Land of the Dead...... However, wait I am waiting for is an also similarly themed concept film, THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES, it looks absolutely terrying and the subtle advertising (adding fake bio sites on the killer) is great. Saw the trailer before the HORRIBLE "One Missed Call' and sitting through the 'Prom Night' trailer.

zombie master, heh maybe at one time, anyway Land of the Dead was probably the worst zombie move I have ever seen, even crappy homemade stuff ive seen was better. Anyway if done right it might be good, but it could be really really crappy. I also saw that preview for THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES and I thought it was a real documentary and at that point it disturbed me and really pissed me off actually, knowing that it is now a faux doc I think I might watch it and yes it does look disturbing.

dont really care...always been a Romero fan....really gets down to the bone on creepy shit....every body makes a flop now and then...look at this Cloverfield scam....what a snow-job....I think this will be far better in the long run...JMO

Why should a movie end up being hacked on before it is released? I like Romero so i will be going to see it even if it will disappoint me. Taking a movie apart on the basis that you have seen it before just makes you sound shallow..... MEH

I don't know what everyone's crapping on about with the "LAND OF THE DEAD"movie i actually thought it was good,but GEORGE A. ROMERO is a legend and will welcome anything he does into my DVD collection anytime.Keep on keeping on ya'll.
