Trailer: George A. Romero's ...of the Dead

by Joey Paur

George Romero has been busy working on his new Zombie film ...of the Dead. Which is so for the title of the film until he fills in the blank. The title Island of the Dead has been floating around which would make sense because the movie takes place on an Island. I didn't have high hope for this one because its been a while since Romero has done a good Zombie film. But this one seems like it could be decent. It looks like he is doing something a little different with the situation and characters.

The story goes something like this:

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?

So what do you think?
