Finally! You knew that there was no way that this wouldn't be released in the U.S. somehow, but the wait could have been a whole lot longer. According to Bloody Disgusting, Magnet releasing has secured distribution for Survival of the Dead in the U.S. It will premiere on VOD, Amazon, and Xbox Live on April 30th. There will also be a limited release in theaters on May 28th. Very cool! I hope it hits the Dallas area somewhere.
Plum Island – a beautiful refuge whose isolation allows two powerful families to maintain a semblance of order in the wake of the zombie holocaust. But as the inhabitants slowly die off, the two clans become sharply divided: the O’Flynns believe that the undead must be destroyed without exception, while the Muldoons insist that afflicted loved ones be kept “alive” until a cure is found. The result is an escalating showdown with echoes of a classic Western stand-off that erupts in brutality and violence.
Survival of the Dead is directed by George A. Romero and stars Alan Van Sprang Kenneth Welsh Kathleen Munroe Devon Bostick Richard Fitzpatrick Stefano Colacitti, and Athena Karkanis.
