of the dead

We have a couple new viral videos to share with you from George A. Romero's new zombie film, Survival of the Dead, and a little behind the scenes look that to our friends over at bloody-disgusting. The zombie film is set to premiere September 12th at the Toronto Film International Film Festival's "Midnight Madness" which is hosting a zombie walk that leads up to the premiere of the film.

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?

Check out the videos below featuring and let us know what you think this new Romero zombie film will be like. Are you looking forward to it?
