“Death of the Dead” Trailer

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.

Looks trashy in a Mad Cow Girl sort of way.

I think this one is going to divide audiences. But it's definitely in the spirit of CRANK meets AIRPLANE meets TROMA meets….

They should skip that "Not from the director of Avatar" bit. Lame and desperate. One thing that filmmakers shouldn't skimp on when making a low budget movie is sound. Shitty sound automatically makes me avoid films like that.

I was excited for this… until you brought up Mad Cowgirl. Why did you have to go and do that?

Loved "New York Lately" and excited for "What's Up Lovely", but I fear that King has strayed a bit too far away from his aesthetic prowess and storytelling wit with this one. He might be best to further develop a body of solid work before trying to push his talents too far into the "comedic" realm.

I'll give it a shot. ZOMBIE NINJAS. I mean, come on. But I haven't seen this Mad Cow Girl thing.

I guess this movie is good for comedy relief. I seem all right. I would have to say very campy. Also fun but not that great. Expect a B movie get a B movie. Just have fun with it.

Fair enough, but I'll still be surprised if efforts and time and talent don't go wasted.

Hmmm, I love a bit of trash but I'm not sure about this one, it's maybe a bit too cheap and cheesy without going all out on the exploitation side of things. Give me Machine Girl any day of the week. You never know though, it could still be fun.

Guess I'm alone here, but I laughed out loud at the "not from the Director of Avatar". Gary will do it again…

and again, and again, and again.
