No Romero isn’t up to his old tricks again… yet. And considering the pure awfulness of his last outing, that is a good thing. But along comes a zom-com sort of borrowing from the franchise’s “… of the Dead” series.
One of our favorite indie film makers has been busy directing a film that to me sort of resembles Shaun of the Dead meets The New Karate Kid. Gary King wow’d us with his drama, New York Lately, and now before tackling another Lynchian drama adventure with What’s Up Lovely, he’s tackling the zombie sub-genre with a spoof mentality and frankly it looks like a load of fun. Just judging from the trailer, the humor might escape some of us, but the look of the film is gorgeous.
Have a look under the seats for the teaser of Death of the Dead, complete with Ninja Zombies; not from the director who brought us Avatar.
…from Gary King.
