WATCH: First Trailer for SYFY’s DAY OF THE DEAD Series Spills Its Guts

The first look at SYFY's DAY OF THE DEAD series brings guts, scares, and humor — check out the brand new teaser now!

Day of the Dead

From the disturbed mind of director Steven Kostanski (Psycho Goreman) comes SYFY’s Day of the Dead. The new series is a “love letter” to the grandfather of all zombies George A. Romero. Meanwhile, the first look comes to light thanks to SYFY’S Day of the Dead panel at Comic-Con@Home. 

This new adaptation for Day of the Dead has a 10-episode order from SyFy. It starts this October — along with another horror legacy series, Chucky

Watch the trailer now:

Day of the Dead hails from showrunners Scott Thomas, Jed Elinoff while starring Keenan Tracey and Natalie Malaika. 

Most importantly, the new footage folds in gore, humour and clear respect for the early works of George A Romero. Plenty of nods and odes to the original Dead series are on display… Hopefully, the gore effects stay in line with this “love letter” attitude. 

Synopsis

“Day of the Dead” is the story of six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of an undead invasion. This ode to George A. Romero’s famous flesh-eaters reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a horde of hungry zombies trying to rip them apart.”

The original Day of the Dead is a zombie horror film written and directed by George A. Romero. The third film in his Night of the Living Dead series concerns a group sheltering in an underground bunker in Florida, where they must determine the outcome of humanity’s conflict with the undead horde. Subsequently, Romero described the film as a “tragedy about how a lack of human communication causes chaos and collapse even in this small little pie slice of society.”
