Romero's Survival of the Dead trailer online
There's a trailer online for George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead, although it doesn't seem to have been quite completed yet, but it still looks like it's going to appeal to the Romero zombie fans, but will it appeal to film fans?
I'm not so sure as the trailer, once the dodgy Irish accent and the plot of the duelling groups of humans on the island is set-up, is it just a series of imaginative kills?
That's certainly what it looks like. I have to say that Irish accent is cringe worthy, and once it's gone we're rushed through the plot, and that for me is the most interesting bit as well as being the most stupid.
I like the idea that survivors are heading out to an island, that there would be groups of competing humans still struggling with jealousy, hatred, greed, and dominance, and competing for control. It's also an interesting idea that some group might want to try and treat the creatures with some respect, thinking perhaps they have a right to live as much as humans do.
All great ideas, but then the trailer just descends into showing the most imaginative ways of killing zombies.
