quietearth [Celluloid 08.13.08] post apocalyptic zombies movie news



We reported in July that Weinstein had given the go ahead for DOTD 2 and that it would start shooting in September. Well now horror-movies.ca has gotten word from an unnamed source that the DOTD 2 production offices have opened in Toronto. While I know we were all disappointed with Diary of the Dead, let's be realistic, we're still going to watch part 2 or anything else Romero puts out. "In the sequel the Diary continues. Our heroes, trapped in the mansion where we left them, battle waves of ravenous zombies, barely escaping alive. In search of a safe place to settle, they commandeer an abandoned ferry and sail to a deserted island, only to find that it is already populated by a civilization of the dead. Told in the same first-person style as part 1, the next episode of the saga is a violent siege set in the middle of nowhere, a desperate struggle for survival, and peace, between two tribes: the living and the living dead." That's all for now!

Hmm. I actually liked Diary for what it was, although it is by no means up there with Romero's best work. I had hoped that the sequel would be like his other dead films and introduce new characters rather than stick with the old ones. Why not move the scenario to say, a journalist or a news crew covering the phenomenon? C'mon George... I've stuck with you this long.

Please, no. I beg you, don't continue that horrible film. I loved everything Romero, until DOTD. It was atrocious.
