Survival of the Dead (2010)

Review by Chris Jacques **There might be a spoiler or two…not plot points or twists, necessarily, but spoilers** It’s been a few months now that I’ve been seeing previews for George Romero’s latest installment in the “Dead” saga, Survival of the Dead.

Exclusive Interview w/ George A. Romero

(If you can't see the video click here.)

For those of you who have not already seen George Romero's most recent film, Diary of the Dead, it is an excellent example of what a zombie movie should be and what producers of undead cinema should aspire to. Based on the fact that you are reading a zombie news blog however, it is safe to assume you have already seen Diary of the Dead. That said, we recorded an interview with Mr. Romero himself which took place after an advance screening this past February hosted by the Museum of the Moving Image. In this exclusive interview, George discusses his first introductions to the horror genre as well as how he went from shooting in Pittsburgh to shooting in Canada. Give it a listen to hear George's answer to:
  • Why he could never be a wartime filmmaker or photographer
  • How he feels new media has impacted American culture
  • What his relationship is like with other famous genre directors
  • Why he has begun to use more digital effects
  • What his writing process is like prior to shooting a film
  • AND OF COURSE - What is the possibility for a sequel to Diary of the Dead
Accompanying the interview are some Diary of the Dead screenshots and pictures related to the production and release of the film as well as some shots from the advance screening provided by George of the New York Horror Meetup Group.
