George Romero Tries To Teach Old Zombies New Tricks

Can you teach zombies to eat other delights, besides delicious brains? A difficult task perhaps, but one George Romero sinks his teeth into, in a promo video for his film ...Of The Dead.

Romero's next movie takes place on a little island being overrun by the undead. But instead of hacking up each former family member into little zombie bits, the residents are trying to find a cure. Unfortunately we all know what happens when you have one zombie: they reproduce like bunnies. There's a fight over who shall inherit the island — people looking for a zombie-free oasis, or those looking for a cure. But most folks in the little town are content to chain up their loved ones inside their houses and pretend everything is all right. So of course, havoc and mayhem ensue.

There still isn't a release date for this film, as it is in production, and who knows if the ...Of The Dead title will stay. But still, it's good to see Romero back in the undead business, even thought the quality of this clip is questionable. But I keep my mind open for a redeeming and graphic thriller, after that whole Diary nonsense.

It's done. I'm over it. Zombie movies you've run your course as we know it. Hopefully WWZ can pull a Tarantino on you and revive you but I'm not holding my breath.

I challenge io9 and it's commenters... we need a new monster. Vampires, Zombies, Ghosts, Werewolves are all played out at this point (no I haven't seen Let the Right One In).

Lets get something new.
