Romero is Back From the Dead
So, since Magnolia Pictures subdivision Magnet picked up the rights to George Romero's Survival of the Dead last month, it seems that the ball has quickly started rolling. According to Fango, Magnet has scheduled a US release date of May 28th, with a Video on Demand release set for April 30th. This is good news for me, as I live fairly close to a Magnolia theater - and I would assume this should play there. As with Bruce Campbell vs. Frankenstein, I'm a little hestistant to get too excited about this due to the lackluster offering that was Diary of the Dead. Of course, I am always willing to give Mr. Romero the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps the old man still has something up his sleeve to surprise us with. Judging from the trailers, I kind of doubt it, but you never know.
