I’ve been a huge fan of zombie movies, have been since I was a kid. It’s cool to see so many new zombie fans in the past few years. When I first aw George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead back in the day, I was blown away. He created the modern day incarnation of what a zombie is. More importantly he uses these zombie outbreaks to explore the human condition. Something lacking from a lot modern day zombie movies.
I was very excited to hear he was working on a new zombie flick (6th), “SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD”. Unfortunately it didn’t get a mass theater release. I was content with the knowledge I would see it, but probably not until it hit video (DVD). But on a random trip to Albuquerque while hitting up the comic shop Astor Zombie, I can across a flyer for a 2 night special show of the movie. Yes, I would get the opportunity to see it on the big screen!
The showing was at the Guild Cinema on July 9 and July 10, with three showing only! I made it to the final showing on Saturday. The movie was a classic B style horror film. With a few great moment that made me jump. I even got the last free poster they were giving away! – Yeah!
