Survival of the Dead LA Premiere Hijinx! Revealed: New Game and App on the Way!

So last night was the LA premiere of George A. Romero’s next entry into his legendary Dead franchise, Survival of the Dead, and of course the Dread Central staff was on hand to take part in the ensuing shambling shenanigans.

The movie went over well and everyone had a great time, but when the master took the stage, the place erupted with a standing ovation! George sat for a few moments and chatted as candidly as possible with fans in true Romero style. Listening to the man, it becomes obvious that either this guy doesn’t know how big of a legend he is, or he just doesn’t care.

During the Q&A he revealed to the audience that he’s in talks with an unnamed video game developer to create a zombie shooter that abides by his rules and that he also has an App of the Dead in the works for iPhone, etc. Good news for people who wanna take the rotting flesh with them.

Speaking of which, there was plenty of rotting flesh on display at the event as fans dressed to the nines in full zombie regalia to pay homage to the man himself. You can dig on some of the images from the evening below in all their iPhone taken fuzzy goodness!

Stars Devon Bostick and Kathleen Munroe may have gotten away from Zombie Creepy for now, but next time I’m putting the bite on them for sure!

Next to meeting Debi (happy tenth anniversary, sweetie!), George allowing me to become a zombie and take my place in his world was the best and most cherished thing that’s ever happened to me. Having not seen each other for a while, we hugged and both became a little teary. It really was a sweet moment. Glad someone captured it.
