survival of the dead

Although "Survival of the Dead" is a marginal film, that hasn't stopped Magnet from packing the upcoming DVD with a ton of enticing extras. Fine and dandy, but no thanks.

If you've ever wondered what your favorite Star Wars characters would look like as monsters, your dreams have been answered. My inner nerd isn't sure if this is insanely cool or outrageously blasphemous.

Former 80's pop stars Debbie Gibson and Tiffany will star in the original SyFy movie "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid", an event which may signal the end of times. The film is scheduled to air sometime next year.

IFC bolsters its new genre banner IFC Midnight as it snatches up the Mexican cannibal flick "We Are What We Are". The movie was a hit at the recent Cannes Film Festival and is labeled as being like "Let the Right One In".

How's this for an odd tie-in? George Romero will be releasing "Survival of the Dead" on the Playstation Network a few days before its theatrical debut on May 28th. What better way to watch it on the PSN than with your own PS3 Slim signed by Romero himself!

It's well known already that the classic "Famous Monsters of Filmland" magazine will be making its return to news stands. Now they're going one step further by announcing the "Famous Monsters of Filmland: Reboot" movie series! Teaming with low-budget studio Halcyon, they will be bringing re-imagined reboots of 5 classic monster franchises.

Can we "Survive" Romero's latest zombie "film"?

With the sun shining the flowers blooming I'm happy to report the Podcast crew will be spending this weekend in the basement watching George A. Romero's latest zombie flick "Survival of the Dead".

Think you've seen it all in a zombie film my friends? Well think again! The red band trailer for George A. Romero's next film "Survival of the Dead" is up and running and guess what? It's got a zombie on a horse! Yes the clip is short and you don't get to enjoy the zombie horse riding in all its horse glory but still it's pretty exciting. I almost like the fact that you don't see the horse. Maybe it's a zombie horse? I don't know, the possibilities are really endless. I need to calm down.

It was damn-near impossible to navigate through the waters of horror-news outlets today as every single page that I clicked on greeted me with a rollover, a pop-up or a redirect for “The Crazies”. One of them even crashed my Goddamned browser. So, as of now, I refuse to to see “The Crazies”. I don't care anymore. Look, ad-men: as a member of the horror community, I am at full awareness that “The Crazies” is out today. Most of us are. Is all this repetitive, intrusive and downright asinine advertising really necessary? It's 9:40 AM on opening day and I'm already burned out on this overexposed remake. I hope it fails, and fails miserably.

Speaking of failing miserably, Bloody Disgusting has the one-sheet for George Romero's latest flogged-to-death horse, Survival of the Dead. It looks like you think it would, with cheaply painted zombies reaching out to grab you, trying desperately to escape the mediocrity.

Last Wednesday, our good pal Casey wrote a fun little piece entitled “9 Insane Asylum Movies” in honor of the release of “Shutta I-lin, Ya Wikked Pissa Bastids”. Meanwhile, over at something called Horror-Movies.ca, they've got a weak-sauce variation called “5 Best Horror Films Set in Mental Institutions”. Our's obviously had thought and care put into it. Their's, on the other hand, had “Gothika”. Ahem.
