About George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead
The master filmmaker continues to reinvent the modern horror genre in a film that draws new battle lines between the living and the dead. A war-weary band of soldiers is lured to a remote island that promises to be the last paradise on earth, only to discover that even here, miles away from civilization, there is no escape from the appetites of the living and the dead. Told with Romero’s iconic sense of humor and keen eye for the fault-lines in contemporary culture, “SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD” expands and intensifies the zombie universe for which he is celebrated. George A. Romero’s “Survival of the Dead” hits theaters across the nation on May 28, 2010 after debuting on VOD, Amazon and Xbox LIVE on April 30.
