Survival of the Dead Rough Promo/Sales Trailer





Talk about a treat for Halloween! What looks to be a rough cut of a new promo (for the upcoming AFM perhaps?) for George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead (review here) showed up on YouTube, and we've got it for you right here! Just beware that spoilers abound ... as does a glorious amount of gory gags.

The clip is unfinished with placeholders for "credit block" and "release date". It was put together by E1 Entertainment, which is distributing Survival of the Dead in Canada and was also a co-producing country on the picture. For more on the film's international sales history, click here. In the meantime, we await word from John Sloss’ Cinetic, which is handling US sales, as to an anticipated Stateside release date.

Synopsis
On a small island off North America's coast, the dead rise to menace the living. Yet...the islanders can't bring themselves to exterminate their loved ones, despite the growing danger from those the once held dear. A rebel among them hunts down all the zombies he can find, only to be banished from the island for assassinating his neighbors and friends. On the mainland, bent on revenge, he encounters a small band of survivors in search of an oasis on which to build a new life. Barely surviving an attack from a mass of ravenous flesh-eaters, they commandeer a zombie-infested ferry and sail to the island. There, to their horror, they discover that the locals have chained the dead inside their homes, pretending to live 'normal' lives...with bloody consequences. What ensues is a desperate struggle for survival and the answer to a question never posed in Romero's Dead films: Can the living ever live in peace with the dead?

Can't even cut a watchable trailer. Yep, that's pretty much exactly how bad this steaming pile is.
