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.
While attending the press junket today for the legendary George A. Romero’s latest movie, Survival of the Dead, Dread Central had the opportunity to speak with the Godfather of the modern zombie film about what the future holds for the writer/director now that Survival is set to be unleashed in theaters on May 28th.
The new short film "Our Days Are Numbered" from producer Coven Delacruz and Condemned Productions has two of our favorite things -- zombies and hot chicks -- so of course we have to share this press release about it that just landed in our inbox.
A new mash-up novel in the tradition of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, only this time turning The Beatles into zombies, entitled Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion, is hitting store shelves on June 22nd; and it's already being considered for a feature film.
With Nazi zombies being everyone's go to villain nowadays, it's only fair that the country that spawned the master evil race take its own crack at delivering some undead mayhem! Board up the windows! It's time for Rammbock!
Wow. The surreal moments just keep on coming. When I did my part in George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead, I had no idea where it would lead. Seeing the finished product was cool, and seeing the fan reaction for the most part was even better. I couldn't be more pleased. But now comes this. The strangest news story I've ever written.
In the LA area next Tuesday, May 11th, and looking for a little zombie mayhem to take part in? Then look no further as that's the date that the next chapter in George A. Romero's epic franchise, Survival of the Dead, will be having its premiere at the Arclight in Hollywood with George in attendance! Even better? We've got twenty-five (25) pairs of tickets to give away so you can see it on us!
Of all the things I've been lucky enough to do and accomplish in my career working within the horror industry, the one I am most grateful for was the opportunity to not only meet but befriend a true living legend in our industry ... George A. Romero. Simply put, the man is my idol, and even though we've grown close, I still get the butterflies every now and then. It was in September of last year that the phone call came.

First-time filmmaker Joshua Hull doesn’t have a flashy Hollywood story about how he got into writing and directing films.

How many times have you found yourself in this situation? You're just hanging out and watching TV when all of a sudden *BOOM* zombies come pouring in through your living room window. Happens to us all the friggin' time and now we are no longer getting caught with our pants down (depending on what we're watching on said TV of course).
Anyone who knows George A. Romero knows that when it comes to movie making and special effects, the man loves to tinker, always reinventing himself and his movies. Another thing about George is that he's always looking to find young talent who know how to work (and work cheap) with the maximum results!
Dread Central recently caught up with writer/director John Skipp during the Never Sleep Again event this past weekend and talked to him about his brand new project he has coming up, Rose. The creator describes the project as "a freaky shot-in-3D feature with a radically whacked-out approach to the undead. Call it Pee Wee’s Playhouse meets Night of the Living Dead".
Every good hero needs a heroine, and the role of Lori has just been filled for Frank Darabont's adaptation of the acclaimed Robert Kirkman comic book series The Walking Dead for AMC.
