Grandpa Romero Needs to Hang It Up

Here, compliments of Bloody Disgusting, is the brand-spanking new trailer for George Romero’s latest zombie flick, Survival of the Dead. I don’t really know why he continues, to be honest. He was the best. And every zombie movie since Night of the Living Dead owes a huge debt of gratitude to Romero. But everyone else is ginning up the zombie genre — taking it for a new spin. Romero keeps driving around the same creaky car. I don’t know how many times he can continue to make the same movie with different characters, but I think Clint Eastwood is emboldening the senior citizen director generation when they should be sitting at home worrying about the robots eating their medication.

Here’s the trailer for Survival of the Dead, which is coming to VOD and Amazon a full month before its theatrical release. That should probably tell you something. Also, the trailer should tell you something, namely: It’s not worth it.
