Although I thought we were going to have much to write about regarding George Romero's newest zombie film Survival of the Dead until it hits theaters in about a month or so, this new poster courtesy of MTV has completely turned me around. This absolutely gorgeous poster was drawn by Charlie Adlard, an artist most well known for his work on Image Comics' "The Walking Dead" series of zombie comics. If you haven't seen a trailer for this yet, you can check out a red band trailer from back in March. It wasn't that great, but it's worth seeing if you're a Romero fan. However, everyone needs to check out this awesome poster below!
Click on the poster to see it slightly larger over on MTV. I wonder if this will be printed and sold anywhere?
On an island off the coast of Delaware, local residents caught in a family feud must simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while trying to find a cure to bring their un-dead relatives back to their human state.
Survival of the Dead is both written and directed by the legendary George A. Romero, of all things zombies and horror, from Night of the Living Dead to The Crazies to Dawn of the Dead to Creepshow to Day of the Dead to Monkey Shines to Land of the Dead. This is technically set in the same universe as Romero's Diary of the Dead from 2007 and is a spin-off/sequel of that film. This first premiered at Fantastic Fest last year with a Romero introduction. Magnet Releasing is bringing Survival of the Dead to theaters this May 28th.
Coolio...can't wait. Given I don't see these on the big screen and I won't be able to if I wanted to, but I might have seen it at the drive in. Perfect for that really thinking zombies are coming up on you while you sit quietly and secure in your car. Muwhahahahaha! idk, looks fun for Netflix!

@2, yeah your right it is total pants, i saw it a month ago and suck balls so badly in such a boring....Yawn..... way. Mr romero had a bit more budget on this flick but seemed to use it on head shots, nowt wrong with a head shots but there is farrrrrrr tooooooo many and not enough other inventive ways to deck a zombie. truthfully i think Romero has just about run out of steam with his zombies flicks sorry to say. Diary was a much better film.

You can watch this on Comcast on Demand right now. It is one of those "before it hits theater deals" for $9.99. I watched it this weekend and personally didn't like it. It didn't even feel like a GR movie. I was hoping for more of a Land of the Dead feel, but it was a let down.

Seriously, you guys? you really care about "what you've read"? I'm just saying i've seen the shit and it's worth checking out. any zombie fan will appreciate it and any Romero fan will too. I have to say, it's better than his last two. just don't judge it cuz he's old school.
