I will admit when I first heard they were rebooting Day of the Dead (again. Yup there was a remake made about a decade ago. Don’t bother looking that one up.) my eyes rolled so hard I think I tore a muscle. George Romero wasn’t even cold in the ground and now this!?!? Yes, I am aware he was most likely alive and well aware of the remake, but fanboyism knows no limits! Then I begrudging checked out the trailer (below) and honestly, the flick doesn’t look bad. Actually, it looks almost… Badass… Now before you yank my fanboy card, I will (proudly) admit I love Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead and just maybe (MAYBE!) Bloodline can be as good. The trailer is jammed pack with hardcore gore and fun zombies and the Bub (no relation) zombie replacement Max looks pretty friggen’ cool. Check out the trailer and poster below and check back here for full review and an interview with the director of the SJP Podcast.
DAY OF THE DEAD: BLOODLINE in Theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on January 5th.
SYNOPSIS: A reimagining of George A. Romero’s cult classic, DAY OF THE DEAD: BLOODLINE is set in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled world where a former med school student is tormented by a dark figure from her past. The only thing is, he’s a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her world.
