JoBlo Review: Survival of the Dead


Let’s get this out of the way right now. I love George A. Romero. When I saw NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD at a very young age, it started me on a whole slew of nightmares ones which I look back on fondly. It soon turned into a strange obsession about wanting to hang out in cemeteries. Especially one called Cemetery Hill over in Utah. That one really looked like the dead would be rising one dark and dreary night, sooner as opposed to later. So the thing is, I’m glad Romero is still making zombie movies. Whether I like them all or not, I like the fact that he is still out there, making the movies that he wants to make. It is almost refreshing really, and the world is a better place for it. I also like the fact that he continues to make a statement, even when it sometimes feels too obvious or over the top, I appreciate that he hasn’t lost his original intention. George Romero was making a strong statement from the very beginning and he probably will as long as he is making movies.

The story is too old to be commented.
