So you haven’t had a chance to watch George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead, which is playing now on VOD, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3, and are afraid that it won’t be in any theatres near you come May 28th? Then we have a date that may very well interest you!
Mark down August 24th on your calendars as that’s the day the movie will be hitting DVD and Blu-ray from Magnolia/Magnet. From what we hear, the package is gonna be pretty stacked, too. Amazing that we’re finally getting a release that’s better than our UK cousins! Whodda thunk it!?!
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.
