Survival of the Dead’s one sheet is offically KICKASS. In cases your new Survival of the Dead is George A. Romeros next zombie horror movie and by default it’ll be great.
Early previews of the film say its focused on a generational feud between two Irish families. One Family believes they should keep the living dead alive until a cure is found or until they can find a alternative food source for the decaying shambling dead. The rival family believes that all zombies should be killed immediately. Theres also some focus on children zombies which creep me the fuck out. It has been noted that Romero is slowly moving away from Zombies being mindless by giving them higher cognitive function… hope not That dude off Land of the dead was too smart for a zombie…
Off the coast of Delaware sits the cozy Plum Island where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O’Flynn’s, headed by patriarch Patrick O’Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headed by Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept ‘alive,’ in hopes that a solution will someday be found.
The O’Flynn’s, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a cynical band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island, to find that the zombie plague has fully gripped the divided community, and the body count is rising.
Survival of the dead is slated to be released via video on demand on April 30, 2010 and in theatres on May 28, 2010.
