This new red-band trailer for George A. Romero's next zombie film Survival of the Dead actually makes the movie look like it's going to be a fun flick to watch. It's a much better trailer than what we've seen from the film so far that's been released. As much as I love zombie films this is a movie I really didn't have a lot of excitement for. The last few zombie films that Romero has made just haven't been very good, but this new one looks like it has some promise. I love the island setting of the film, and it looks like the characters actually have some life in them.
Check out the red-band trailer below, and let us know what ya think!
Immediately following the events of "Diary of the Dead," "Survival of the Dead," is the 6th film from George A. Romero to look at a world where humans are in the minority and the zombies rule.
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 bodycount is rising.
As the battle between humans and zombies escalates, the master filmmaker continues to reinvent the modern horror genre with wicked humor and pointed social commentary.
