Trailer of the Dead

01.06.2009

…OF THE DEAD

George A. Romero is currently filming his latest zombie opus, simply titled (at least for now) …OF THE DEAD, and though he's likely quite busy, he still manged to put together the below promo trailer to give us a little early taste of what he's been up to. The official plot synopsis goes a little something like so:

On a small island off North America’s coast, the dead rise to menace the living. Yet…the islanders can’t bring themselves to exterminate their loved ones, despite the growing danger from those the once held dear.

A rebel among them hunts down all the zombies he can find, only to be banished from the island for assassinating his neighbors and friends. On the mainland, bent on revenge, he encounters a small band of survivors in search of an oasis on which to build a new life. Barely surviving an attack from a mass of ravenous flesh-eaters, they commandeer a zombie-infested ferry and sail to the island.

There, to their horror, they discover that the locals have chained the dead inside their homes, pretending to live ‘normal’ lives…with bloody consequences. What ensues is a desperate struggle for survival and the answer to a question never posed in Romero’s Dead films: Can the living ever live in peace with the dead?

No release date is set as yet but we'll hit you up with it as soon as we know.

…OF THE DEAD

Extra Tidbit: More power to Romero for sticking to zombies but what if he tried a non-zombie film right now, huh?

death to joblo video, and more

im tired of having to go to your cheap youtube-wanna-be site to watch EVERY single clip... Learn to embed already

edit ; i just edited this post and wrote a long rant about this film and its title and then it said i wasnt logged in, damn it--

basically, why not "island" seems like a better and more intriguing title than all the other "dead" films?

and this looks better from what I could tell (which wasnt much- small vid and very dark scenes) than the last two... Oh, and I honestly

heres hoping it at least wont be so heavy handed and obvious about its "symbolism" (which I put into quotes because it doesnt really qualify as symbolism if it directly addresses its "symbols" and their deeper, more sociological meaning)

double-edit: anyone see that failed zombie pilot, Babylon Fields, about zombies in a small town that come back and are basically human, with all cogntive abilites, and just bad skin, joints, etc? It starred the ray stevenson, the actor who played the new punisher... That show took a semi-comedic angle on a similar premise to this film (on paper)... it was clear they were going to explore the notions of integrating zombies into everyones daily lives....

Having recently seen Martin, Crazies and Knightriders at a Film Festival (where I also met the man himself) I've gotta say I'd love for him to do another film like that, that isn't to do with zombies. But then I liked Land and Diary, so I'm happy with his zombies too.

I was so so about Land of The Dead but have grown to appreciate what it is. I rarely say this and in fact hate when other people do but I'll say it now: In the case of Dairy those who didn't like it just didn't get it.
This one looks just like any othe zombie trailer.Doesn't say much. I like the concept though and can't wait to see it. Romero still has kept his touch I think.

Island of the Dead

Diary still is hard to talk about.

Land isn't much better, either.



Here's hoping this next one sets the bar again.
