Land of the Dead

Being a huge fan of Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead (not so keen on the original Night of the Living Dead, but I love the remake. Go figure), I have to thank 28 Days Later and the Dawn of the Dead remake for bringing zombie films back into vogue. It’s questionable that without those films to lay the groundwork, George Romero’s long-awaited Land of the Dead would have been made.

The official site of Land of the Dead went live last night, including the first trailer for the movie. First impressions suggest that it’s heavily influenced by the remake of Dawn of the Dead. Very kinetic, and very nu-metal. It still looks fantastic though.

Roll on June 24th.
