Product Overview

Immediately following the events of Diary of the Dead, Survival of the Dead is the 6th film from George A. Romero to look at a world where humans are in the minority and the zombies rule.

Off the coast of Delaware sits the cozy Plum Island where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O'Flynn's, headed by patriarch Patrick O'Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headed by Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept 'alive,' in hopes that a solution will someday be found.

The O'Flynn's, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island, to find that the zombie plague has fully gripped the divided community.

As the battle between humans and zombies escalates, the master filmmaker continues to reinvent the modern horror genre with wicked humor and pointed social commentary.

ReviewSource The Hollywood Reporter
Review George A. Romero's latest zombie fest, "Survival of the Dead," is a polished, fast-moving, entertaining picture whose mainstream success will depend on audiences' tolerance of its tendency to become an abattoir of extreme carnage...Zombie aficionados will feast on the inventive and often funny ways that the genre king -- with the help of special effects makeup artist Francois Dagenais and visual effects supervisor Colin Davies -- contrives to show heads exploding and bodies being blown apart...True to the form with savvy cultural points, clever wit and a nice twist on what might happen to the newly deceased, "Dead" should make a tidy boxoffice killing...Romero keeps his script simple and direct. The world is in crisis, with 53 million people dying each year but refusing to stay dead. The deadheads, as they're now called, feed on live humans, who then become deadheads. And so on...On Plum Island off the coast of Delaware, two Irish families, the O'Flynns and the Muldoons, are continuing their lifelong feud by disagreeing on how zombies should be treated. Rascally O'Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) is all for blowing them to pieces, no matter that they were once members of the family. Stern Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick) believes they should be chained up and held to await the development of a cure...As the film opens, the feud has exploded, and Muldoon puts O'Flynn onto a boat to return to the mainland. There, meanwhile, a small band of soldiers led by Sarge (Alan Van Sprang) has turned outlaw, robbing others to stay supplied with food and ammunition and reducing deadheads to dead bodies whenever they encounter them...They are seeking a relative safe haven, and through a quick series of events, they end up going to Plum Island with the exiled, vengeful O'Flynn in tow, little knowing that besides having deadheads to worry about they are now heading into a violent turf war...Made in Canada with a Canadian cast, the film is expert in all areas, with Sprang a plausible leader and Welsh and Fitzpatrick old hands as the two faces of Irish charm. The mayhem includes heads responding explosively to the effects of fire extinguishers, flares and blades, besides the usual assault weapons. It's surprisingly good fun.

Quotes
Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York The tone this time out is primarily comic.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer "Lousy times make lousy people," someone opines, and maybe that's the point Romero's trying to drive home.
