Survival of the Dead approaches!

While a domestic release remains TBD, we're looking forward to the imminent arrival of the UK release of George A. Romero's latest zombie effort, Survival of the Dead. For the first time, Romero carries over (albeit supporting) characters from another film (in this case, Diary of the Dead). Interestingly enough, the same actor played a similar role in Land of the Dead - where his fate confirms this film cannot be a sequel to that. :) The reviews have been primarily positive - particularly from fans disappointed with Diary. For my money, the worst Romero zombie film will still be far better than the majority of by-the-numbers zombie efforts that have come out in his wake.

It's available from Amazon in the UK, and we'll know shortly if the BluRay release is all region or not.
