"**** THERE’S PLENTY TO DELIGHT IN ROMERO’S SIXTH ZOMBIE EAT-‘EM-UP. The film’s final image is a mythopoetic doozy, HILARIOUS AND HUMBLING ALL AT ONCE."

-Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York

"THE BEST HORROR-COMEDY-WESTERN YOU’LL EVER SEE."

-Time Out New York

"RABIDLY ENTERTAINING! One of the best looking of Romero’s films with sharp jabs of black humor, wild moments of intestine-chomping gore and surprising bursts of social commentary."

-Dennis Dermody, Paper

"Romero is a fount of inspiration. Scarcely a zombie dies in a boring way."

-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

"A ROLLICKING, RAMBUNCTIOUS, OFTEN HILARIOUS, FREQUENTLY REVOLTING INVERSION OF GENRES THAT COULD ONLY COME FROM ROMERO. A great, eccentric, tightly paced and unconventional film. Viewed as a piece of Romero’s ongoing cinematic puzzle, IT’S ESSENTIAL."

-Chris Alexander, Fangoria

"*** It mixes genres and milieus with absurdist glee."

-Stephen Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Survival of the Dead is, hands down, the best Dead film since Day."

-Devin Faraci, CHUD

"Survival is the funniest Dead film."

-Devin Faraci, CHUD

"…it's a damn good, damn interesting, damn unique film from a filmmaker who isn't resting on his laurels but rather still earning our respect and loyalty."

-Devin Faraci, CHUD

"A WELCOME RETURN TO FORM FOR ROMERO. The most picturesque of his zombie film. There’s infectious humor, pathos and intensity and old-fashioned directorial mastery."

-Stuart Klawans, The Nation

"KUDOS TO THE GRAND OLD MAN OF THE DEAD FOR RECLAIMING WHAT’S HIS, ON HIS TERMS."

-Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal

"****1/2. Arguably one of the best in the ‘of the dead’ series."

-Scott A. Johnson, Dread Central

"Old school horrorheads will find enough here to rejoice."

-Jamie Graham, Total Film

"A LOT OF FUN. Strong laughs, lots of zombie mayhem and a fantastic lead performance by Kenneth West."

-Scott Weinberg, Fearnet

About The Film

The newest film from horror master George A. Romero (legendary creator of the Night of the Living Dead franchise) picks up where Diary of the Dead leaves off. On a small island off the coast of Delaware, live two families locked in a struggle for power and control over the fate of the undead. The O’Flynns approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept “alive,” in hopes that a solution will be discovered. For both families, existence on Plum Island is a nightmarish world where humans are the minority and zombies rule.
