Diary of the Dead poster

01.20.2008
To answer the question posed by the new poster for George Romeroís DIARY OF THE DEAD, on Faceboook. Iím not certain what the marketers behind this poster were trying to achieve by asking me that question, but if they intended to show me what an insignificant life I live, they succeeded. Theyíre also showing me that for his fifth zombie movie, George Romero is turning his (digital) camera on the YouTube generation. Itís blogger brain these undead crave. DIARY will be shot POV style, much like movie-du-jour CLOVERFIELD. A bunch of college kids are making their own horror movie when the zombies attack, and Iím not sure if the camera is found or if weíre watching things as they unfold, but this being a Romero film, you can bet it will be rife with gore, guts, and social commentary. Opening on February the 15th.

Extra Tidbit: Romero is calling this movie a reboot of the 'Dead' franchise, or in his own words, a "rejigging of the myth."

Wait... so he's rebooting his own franchise? Is that really necessary?

Meh. What's that camera recording? the screen on the camera doesn't look like anything in the background. or is that the point? anyway i find myself bored by his movies of late and i would like him to do something besides zombies. he's talented, but its getting old.

Romero

pretty much started the franchise, so what you mean is, 28 days / weeks later wish they could compare, and exist as a side dish to Romero's work. If it wasn't for him you probably wouldn't be able to enjoy any zombie movies we have today.

Again

You would think that this guys family was turned into zombies, I mean is there any other kind of movie he can make! And he calls it a remake? There all remakes everyone after the first one is a remake. This wont compare to 28 days/weeks later it will be immature and stupid for the 6th time! If you cant get it right by the 4th try just give up.

Sweet

Badass poster. I cant wait for this. Every time Romero makes a zombie movie magic happens. So lets hope he doesnt break the cycle.
