Romero May Be Doing Zombies, But With A Message Underneath

September 13, 2009

Vienna (ChattahBox) – George A. Romero is going back to his Independent horror film days. But he is hoping to spread a message along with the usual zombie-induced gore.

“Survival of the Dead” is the newest installment of the popular zombie series, which pits humans against their flesh eating brethren.

In this film, a group of people escape to an island that they think will finally offer some peace of mind, and also some peace for the pieces of their minds that the undead hope to get their cold, dead fingers on.

They end up in the middle of a feud between two families, each one who believes in handling the Zombie Apocalypse in a different way. One wants to take them all out, one by one, while another hopes that rehabilitation may be found through a cure.

While this can be interpreted in a myriad of ways, Romero says that there is no single incident that this film is meant to depict.

“It’s much more about man’s underlying inability to forget enmity, forget their enemies even long after they’ve forgotten what started the conflict in the first place. I think that part of the problem is that nobody looks at both sides of any issue, it’s automatically: I’m on this side or I’m on that side.”

But for those who are not interested in the political basis for the film, you can always enjoy what we all go to Romero for: watching zombies eat people. It’s fun for the whole family.
