Survival Of The Dead: Demise Of The Romero

Survival Of The Dead was written and directed by the Godfather of zombie movies himself George A. Romero, with the film revolving around two feuding Irish families who for some reason are living on an island just off Delaware during a zombie apocalypse.

Unfortunately, the undead just looked plain stupid but still demonstrated more intelligence than the characters, who made all the obvious mistakes in order to try and force an otherwise non-existent plot. To his credit George A. Romero did at least make a half-assed attempt to raise a number of social issues in Survival Of The Dead, all of which in the end proved too boring to even contemplate.

It says a lot that when Romero launched his resurgent trilogy offering back in 2005 with Land of the Dead, that movie cost $15 million to make but still managed to gross $47 million at the box office. Nevertheless, the adoring fans who turned out for that movie expecting a few new tricks from the master were mostly disappointed, until Diary Of The Dead (2007) further eroded any remaining good will they still may have felt. Finally, Survival Of The Dead (2009) cost a meager $4 million to make and took a pitiful $143,191 at the Box office.

VERDICT: Demise Of The Dead

Hi, My name is James Atticus and I have had a keen passion for movies ever since being blown away while watching 'A Trip to the Moon' back in 1902. Hardly surprisingly, I am a big sci-fi and horror fan, although my love of film extends throughout all the genres. One of my favourite quotes about cinema was told to me by Alfred Hitchcock, who said: "For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake." To which I replied, "Don't mind if I do!"
