The Father of the Zombie movie has done it again. Although the joy of going to a zombie movie seems to have slowed down and movie themes are changing from this horror, a George Romero Zombie Movie is still a must see. A brand new take on the Zombies and their abilities to survive in their world within or without the humans is a fresh breath of air! This movie will be enjoyed by many generations yet to understand the true nature of a Zombie. Many of the older horror movie makers and even the younger up and coming story writers have run out of themes or fresh story lines for Zombies. George has no problems and shows it with the new thrilling action movie we wait for with baited breath!
- The new movie is called George A. Romero Presents: Road of the Dead which is “set on an island where zombie prisoners race cars in a modern-day Coliseum for the entertainment of humans.”
- There are those who feel the zombie genre is too overdone by now and it needs to go dormant for a while before it can make a fresh comeback.
- Romero is not directing this new movie (which is a shame) he is co-writing it with the director Matt Birman.
“Romero understands zombies because he understands that any high concept silliness (like zombies riding horses in Survival of the Dead), must stem from the world that emerges after zombie outbreak. Even his outlandish societies, like Fiddler’s Green, the walled city lorded over by Dennis Hopper in Land of the Dead, take on a weight of plausibility that other zombie movies struggle to approach. He understands better than anyone that a zombie movie is about a zombie society, not a zombie outbreak.”
