|Home: BigScreen Journal - Watch George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead Before It Reaches Theaters - Legally!|
George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead opens in theaters Friday, May 28th, but you don't have to wait that long to see it! No, I'm not talking about getting it from that guy on the street corner that always seems to get new releases on DVD before theaters do -- Amazon's Video on Demand feature has the movie available for rental right now:
It's not often you can watch a movie before its theatrical release date and not have to keep one eye on the door, hoping the piracy squad doesn't bash it down while you're eating your popcorn...
Romero made a name for himself in the horror genre back in 1968 with the release of Night of the Living Dead, which spawned many sequels, created a whole zombie sub-genre, and inspired a great many movies since!
In Survival of the Dead, the cozy Plum Island sits off the coast of Delaware, where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O'Flynn's, headed by patriarch Patrick O'Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headedby Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept 'alive,' in hopes that a solution will someday be found.
The O'Flynn's, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a cynical band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island, to find that the zombie plague has fully gripped the divided community, and the body count is rising.
