The dead are back in Romero’s follow-up to Diary of the Dead, which is now FINALLY known as Survival of the Dead, and lucky fans in Austin, Texas will get to see it first here in the States as part of Fantastic Fest ’09!
When the idyllic retreat of Plum Island falls victim to the zombie plague, a new breed of clan war breaks out. On one side is the camp who want to exterminate all the undead with a wickedly diverse array of brain-splattering head-shots. On the other devoted family members take the stance that “zombie-ism” is a disease, the undead have rights, and they must be kept alive until a cure is found. Unable to simply “agree to disagree,” the two clans go to war and make their island microcosm a whole hell of a lot bloodier. An undead parallel to the tribal wars that are plaguing our own society today, SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD exposes the futility of such conflict and the need for tolerance of the beliefs of others.
