The original DAY OF THE DEAD is my favorite Romero zombie film and attempts to sequelize (DAY OF THE DEAD 2: CONTAGIUM) and update it (the 2008 remake) have been pretty dire so far. Here’s hoping the third time is the charm, the poster and trailer certainly have my hopes up.
A reimagining of George A. Romero’s cult classic, DAY OF THE DEAD: BLOODLINE stars Johnathon Schaech (“Legends of Tomorrow,” Prom Night), Sophie Skelton (Starz’s “Outlander,” 211), Marcus Vanco (“The Shannara Chronicles,” Unbroken) and Jeff Gum (The Forgiven, Primal). The film was directed by Hèctor Hernández Vicens (The Corpse of Anna Fritz) and was written by Mark Tonderai (House at the End of the Street, Hush) and Lars Jacobson (Baby Blues).
Saban Films will be releasing DAY OF THE DEAD: BLOODLINE in Theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on January 5th.
