In just a few days, March 15th to be exact, the next entry into George A. Romero’s legendary Dead franchise will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD in the UK from Optimum Home Entertainment. You know, the place across the pond with the stacked home video releases as opposed to the lovely bare bones crap we get here in the States (still angry about Paranormal Activity).
Below you’ll find the Blu-ray art courtesy of DVD Active. Strangely enough, news of what types of supplemental materials will be included is still pending. Maybe we’ll end up on top this time around? Who am I kidding?
Magnet will be releasing the film in the US on April 30th via VOD, XBOX Live, Playstation, and Amazon and then follow that release with a limited theatrical run on May 28th.
Like its predecessors, Romero’s Survival of the Dead (reviews here and here) takes place in a desperate, nightmarish world where the dead walk the earth, relentlessly attacking the living. It is the story of Plum Island – a beautiful refuge whose isolation allows two powerful families to maintain a semblance of order in the wake of the zombie holocaust. But as the inhabitants slowly die off, the two clans become sharply divided: The O’Flynns believe that the undead must be destroyed without exception, while the Muldoons insist that afflicted loved ones be kept “alive” until a cure is found. The result is an escalating showdown with echoes of a classic Western stand-off that erupts in brutality and violence.
