Now this is pretty damned cool. Magnet Releasing commissioned Charlie Adlard, illustrator of Robert Kirkman’s zombie comic epic The Walking Dead, to create his own unique version of the one-sheet for George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead and the results are — of course — badass.
Magnet has released the film here in the US via VOD, XBOX Live, Playstation Network, and Amazon and then you can dig on it in theatres as it begins its 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.
