Every Damned Thing About Zombies

George Romero’s Twilight of the Dead In Pre-Production

George A Romero’s Twilight of the Dead, a previously unfinished screenplay is now in production, with accomplished director Brad Anderson on board. Despite the fact that poor George A. Romero, the mastermind behind the ‘one zombie film to rule them all’ – Night of the Living Dead — died back in 2017. Night of the Living Dead was the first of a very loosely connected string of Romero’s “slow zombie” movies, including Dawn of the Dead,and Day of the Dead.

It’s filming in Puerto Rico, which makes sense, given that it takes place on a tropical island (probably not related to the zombie-infested island that the survivors go to at the end of Zach Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead, but wouldn’t that be cool?).
According to the press release, it explores:

“The dark nature of humanity from the perspective of the last human on Earth, caught between factions of the undead.”

So basically not a light comedy. Probably not even any musical numbers, damn it.

Twilight of the Dead has been considered for production before – many times – but it’s never come this far. And Anderson is a *legit* professional. He helmed films like Halle Berry’s The Call, David Caruso’s Session 9 (an actual horror movie), and Christian Bale’s pre-Bane weirdness, The Machinist.

Nothing has been confirmed yet so far as casting, release date, or if this is going straight to one of the streaming networks instead of theaters. At this point, we’re just hoping that we will see it some time in 2024!

Zombie Night: Big Names in a Fully Forgotten Film (For Good Reason)

How can a bunch of well-known and well-loved movie stars make a zombie movie that’s entirely forgettable? Seriously, truly forgettable? That’s exactly what happened with Zombie Night.  We here at Zombie World International Headquarters and Bunker Central had thought...

Fear the Walking Dead finishes its run by going backward, not forward

We’ve been watching Fear the Walking Dead since its early ‘good’ days (read that as “the first couple of years, give or take”). Okay, we admit it, we took a few years off and then came back and then left again, but we’re all caught up now… and we’ve looked upon the...

R.L. Stine’s Zombie Town hits Netflix (and it’s not alone!)

The newest incarnation of R.l. Stine's Goosebumps, on Hulu, is damn good. The new 'feature' film adaptation of his almost-as-classic Zombie Town, now on Hulu? Not so much...not even with a major social media influencer and a former Ghostbuster center stage. Most of us...

Is Fido an (unofficial) sequel to Night of the Living Dead?

There’s a little-known but well-worth-it movie from 2006 that might very well be a ‘true,’ if cock-eyed, sequel to George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, the father of all zombie movies. But if you didn’t know, you just might miss it.Fido came and went with...
