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 in select theatres? Not to worry. As we reported earlier, August 24th is the date you’ll be able to own the flick on DVD and Blu-ray, and we’ve got a bit of artwork for you to boot.
Eagle-eyed DC reader Matt B alerted us to the fact that over on Walmart.com the Blu-ray and the DVD are available for pre-order. Even more interesting, it seems as if there are two different DVD packages coming – a single disc and a two-disc Ultimate Undead Edition. Check out the artwork below, and look for more soon!
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.
