Magnolia is prepping a deluxe Survival of the Dead: Ultimate Undead Edition Blu-ray for release August 24. How deluxe? No clue, the specs and extras have yet to be announced. (Bloody Disgusting)
How about some George Romero interviews? I’ve got two of them (one’s a two-parter), all embedded below!
- First, he talks about Survival of the Dead with a dude named “Spider.” (FEARnet)
- Then they sit him in front of Left 4 Dead 2 to talk about it, the zombie genre’s evolution and more. Part one is at FEARnet, part two at G4’s The Feed. And it’s a more than a half hour total (don’t forget, it’s all embedded below).
Did you like the makeup and creature effects in Quarantine (review here)? Good news, the same dude is handling those duties for the sequel. That sequel is written and directed by John Pogue and is set in an airport. It starts shooting next month. (Dread Central)
Humans vs. zombies makes it to the campus of Ohio State University. (The Lantern)
The sorta-kinda French zombie movie The Pack (they’re “ghouls” who are already dead and still hungry — close enough, right?) dropped some new pictures. (Filmstarts.de)
