The dead are rising again.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that horror maven George A. Romero has signed on to write and direct "George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead," the latest sequel to his 1968 cult classic "Night of the Living Dead."

With a story mixing elements of "The Blair Witch Project" and the long-running "Dead" series, the film will follow a group of college students shooting a horror movie in the woods who stumble upon a real zombie uprising. When the onslaught begins, they seize the moment as any good film students would, capturing the undead in a "cinema verite" style that causes more than the usual production headaches.

After going more than two decades without making an independently financed zombie film, Romero told his production partner Peter Grunwald he was frustrated working within the system. "I was trying to convince Peter we could just run off and do it ourselves," he said.




Well, it's a little something different from Georgie-boy. I wonder if there's going to be any of that social commentary that us zombie gore hounds love so much....I'm not skeptical, just as long as it has more lasting amusement than LOTD.

Sounds like BS to me. However, if it's true it could be interesting if executed well.

Sounds totally.... weird. Not sure if I even believe it. It's a very, VERY strange idea though.

I'm already skeptical.

However, if this is for real, I'm all for it.

B-D usually is pretty good with rumor control. The only time I was really ticked off was the Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash script thing a couple years back. B-D says this news is official, so I'll take it. It's something new, which could be good or bad. I'm waiting for someone to do a 'back to de basics' joke here.

The news is official, it came from Hollywood Reporter (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr/film/brief_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003053050).

I don't know what to think of this. I would rather just see another balls out Zombie flick from the man, but if it's going to be independent like Romero is saying then I'm all for it. Diary does sound extremely interesting though.

I still wish Romero could have made Land of the Dead incredibly long...I'm talking 2 to 3 hours long. It needed to be, especially with the subject matter they were using.

This sounds refreshing, but only if executed well. I am hesitant on any zombie movie right now.

I'm pushing for a Walking Dead live action series somehow...that would be great.

It sounds odd, but it can work if done a certain way. I think if he can keep it from looking to much like "Blair Witch" it should be fine.

I would hope its nothing like Blair Witch because I despise that crappy movie, but sadly it says its going to have some elements of it in it.

The more I think about this the more I hope that if this news is true, this will turn out to be a standalone movie and not part of the 'Dead' series. How could this possibly be a sequel? The article says these people stumble onto a zombie uprising, but that sounds like they were unaware of the zombie plague. So if this is to be the next sequel the only way this idea could work is if this movie is set in the future and the original zombie plague has somehow been wiped out and a new one has started. Hopefully more news will come soon.

I always got the feeling Romero wasn't happy with "Land". Going through Universal, threw him out of his realm.

Maybe "Diary" will actually feel like a "Dead" film, instead of the Hollywood-slicked "Land".

It could be a prequel...

I heard around the time LOTD came out (have no idea where and was probably not true) that George A. Romero wanted to make the series into a 6 movie saga, with one of them being a prequel...

I wouldn't take what ive just posted v. seriously as im sure if it was even vaguely true, someone else wouldve heard something about it

EDIT: (ive just read on BD that the movie opens when the outbreak began.. sound like a prequel? maybe what i heard was true...)

NightmareMan84
09-01-2006, 09:35 PM
Yeah the fact that it may go STV does not sit well with me either. Also, I'm a little confused about this movies place in the 'Dead' series. I mean it's clear that it's part of it, but is it sort of a prequel that's set the same night of the first, or is it a re-imagining like Rob Zombie's Halloween? I really hope it's the former, but I guess it's too early to tell.

Well i'm wondering if Romero is just gonna start making stand-alone "Dead" films, that just throws new characters in a mix with threatening zombies.

"Night", "Dawn", "Day" & "Land" were all connective. But "Diary" doesn't sound like it's gonna fit anywhere, unless it's gonna fit in-between "Night" & "Dawn".

I'm not sure if I like the idea or not, but it has the potential to be alot like the original NOTLD, which would be really cool. And STV, thats fine with me, as long as the film is good.

Yeah, i agree. But if a film has the potential to be as big as NOTLD, wouldn't you want to see it in a cinema first? I know i would... i guess we will have to wait and see. But, yeah, i agree with your views anywayz :D:):D

Normally I would say, "DTV...okay...I'll skip it" but not in this case and here's why:

Look what happened to Land of the Dead. The theatrical version was butchered beyond belief. Not only gore but a FUCKING STORY ELEMENTS were cut from the movie...all for the sake of the friggen clock. I went to see it in theaters and loved it. Then when I saw it on dvd, I found out I was cheated when I saw it in theaters.

the moral of the story is

Even if it were to come out in theaters, we wouldn't see it the way it is meant to be seen until the dvd release anyway. I say, I want to see it THE RIGHT WAY the first time.

In this rare case, bring on the DTV Romero film. Hey, I don't like the concept so I think it's going to suck to begin with, but if I must sit through it, I at least want to sit through the best version of the film available.

Romero had this to say,

Hi, guys,

Lemme tell ya about Diary of the Dead. I love it. It's the first film since my original Night of the Living Dead that I can say is completely my own.

I've been trying to work under-the-radar, with no hype or press, but lately I've started hearing all kinds of shit about "What's goin' on with Romero?" "What's with his new film?"

Gimme a break over here! I'm up in Toronto workin' my ass off, making Diary the best it can be. Truth is, I'm having a blast. I've gone home to the kind of filmmaking that I used to do, back in the day.

Diary is a hundred percent independent, made with my partner, Peter Grunwald, and our new friends at Artfire. I haven't had this much freedom since 1968. The cast, of what film critics will probably call "unknowns" (they won't be for long) is, in my opinion, fuckin' great.

This one comes from my heart. It's not a sequel or a remake. It's a whole new beginning for the dead.

Thanks to all of you who are out there waiting and wondering. You guys, the fans, have always kept me going. Now Diary's keeping me going, night, dawn, and day.

I love this movie. I hope you will, too. I'll be back here from time to time to keep you posted. Stay tuned.

Stay scared.

George A. Romero

George seems to feel really good about this one, I cant wait till it comes out because I think the idea behind it is great and to see a zombie film from George that happens on the same night as NOTLD sounds interesting so im hyped.

I really liked Land Of The Dead but I will agree that Romero really didnt get to call all the shots, The only thing that let me down about Land was that there was alot of CGI used but Romero was directing it for a big studio and he had a deadline to put it out in theaters so I understand it had to be done, But since he done Diary of the Dead all by himself without a big studio and a theater deadline maybe we will get to see the old Romero of Night/Dawn/Day
again.

My real problem with Land of The Dead is Big Daddy. It was a bad character and it was really a terrible performance. Way too human, nowhere near the quality of Bub. I really can't wait to see what Romero's can do with an actual independent movie again.

Well basically the point is zombies are evolving, Getting more intelligent and capable of more.

07-04-2007, 12:36 PM
and I like that a lot, I really do. It was great with Bub. The problem is that Big Daddy seems to cease being a zombie at all. He's almost completely human.

I'm just glad that Romero can make a zombie movie now that doesn't have to be connected at all to the other series. I think it frees him up to be a bit more creative with the material.

Let me ask you this, How do you feel about the film not having a musical score, I myself am interested in seeing how it works out and I think it may add a new level of creepiness, And it should make people feel like they are watching real footage or something but I think that is the way Diary is intended to be, But do you like the fact it has no music?

Its hard to say. The score for Dawn is fucking amazing. Part of what makes me love it so much. The score can be powerful, but at the same time, no score could work for this type of movie. Either way im pumped

The score by Goblin for Dawn was definately amazing, I also loved John Harrison's score for Day It kinda has a John Carpenter feel to it, Actually now that I think of it Dawn and Day's score's have a Carpenter feel to them, But I really think the no score thing about Diary will definately add more realism to it.

Yeah the scores definetly do have a Carpenter taste to them. They work amazingly for the movies. But if this movie is a documentary style, no score definetly makes it seem more realistic. You'll feel as though your watching the actual footage that was filmed. (ex: Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon). For alot of the movie, or at least before the "Slasher portion", I dont think there is any score. It really helps you belive the movie is truly a documentary, and does it damn well.

The film not having a score is a really ballsy move by Romero. Fuck everything about this movie seems so ballsy. That's really the reason that I'm happy about this film, Romero just seems to have so much passion for it and he looks to be pulling out all the stops.

The original Chain Saw Massacre had basically no score, with the exception of a few banging pots and pans sounds here and there. Can you imagine if Diary has a Chain Saw feel to it? That would be nuts.

UPDATE!!!!

ROMERO, IN CANADA, AT MIDNIGHT
07.23.07
By Russ Fischer
Since he's been up there making it for months, it makes sense that George A Romero's Diary Of The Dead (that's the full title, folks) will premiere as part of the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival's Midnight Madness program. That's the part of the festival where movies like Ichi The Killer, Hostel and High Tension have bowed in the past; hopefully Diary will be better than all of them. Loads better. Please.

Romero is in good company. Stuart Gordon's Stuck (based on the news story where a woman hit a guy with her car, then drove home and garaged it with his body in the windshield) is in the program, as is Hitman director Xavier Gens' Frontière(s) and Wilson Yip's SPL follow-up Flash Point. (SPL: another Midnight Madness premiere.)

The other films sound fun, too. The Devil's Chair and À l'intérieur promise serious gore, and the Japanese Dainipponjin parodies superheroes and Ultraman, much like Takashi Miike's previous festival entry Zebraman. The only program entry that fails to around interest is the anime Vexille, but maybe it'll be fun as well.

In all, this is a more serious program than in the past couple of years, where the proceedings have been lightened with films like Borat and Jesus Is Magic. You can get extended info on each film at TIFF's site by clicking here.

The 2007 festival starts on September 6 and runs through the 15th. Once again, I'll be there for the duration, tired and elated.,,,,,,

So I guess Diary Of The Dead will premiere in Toronto, I hope it comes to the US quickly after, But It looks like the ball is really starting to roll.

I saw Romero there a few years ago when he was the guest of honor. He is a nice friendly guy. Unfortunately since the lines were so long no one got to spend a ton of time with him, but he certainly talked with everyone and posed for pics and answered any question as well as he could.
Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to grab one of the 4-disc Dawn of the Deads. It was to be released the next week but he brought a bunch with him and they sold out the first day (I was there on the second day) in an hour or so.
I did get his and Savini's autographs on Creepshow though, now all I need is Stephen King's.

Nothing will top Dawn or Day. It's like when an artist comes out with a big hit at the begining of their career and are damned to never beat it because it's damn near perfect. The expectations are too extreme, too unatainable.

This is indeed fantastic news!!! I just hope people watch it for what it is and don't compare it to Dawn. Personally I loved Land but I feel some people were expecting another genuine attempt at best movie ever like Dawn was.
When I compare Land to all other zombie flicks released recently (including Day of the Dead rip off, 28 Days Later) none of them are as good and I'm confident Diary will deliver also. GO GEORGE!!! YOU ROCK!!!

Silverpsycho
12-16-2007, 06:34 PM
I am really really trying to remain optimistic about this one. It sounds to be totally different from the others which I know I will find strange, but at least it's still the Godfather of zombies behind this project.

I for sure will be to the theatres in the beginning and I'm hopeful it will at least equate to Land or be better. If I find it a notch below Land, then Romero has lost his touch. I liked Land, but it's certainly no Night, Dawn or even Day.

Khan
12-16-2007, 06:37 PM
I am not expecting this to be a masterpiece like Night, Dawn Or Day, so I won't be let down.

I asked Romero what he thought about Land, and he said "yeah, I like it" in a way that suggested that it wasn't his favourite film.

wyatt s
12-16-2007, 06:56 PM
I've seen several interviews with Romero and every time he talks about Land he generally seems as though he's not happy with a lot of it.

This movie however, I can't wait. Everything I hear about it just sounds great. I don't think anything will ever equal the greatness of Romero's original trilogy, but this may well be great in its own right.

I would most definately agree. He's got one of those creative minds that can work too well without the studios and when they get in on the action it just.. doesn't go down too well. I'm glad he's put film making before the cash that the studios would've paid him for another. Shows how much he cares about making movies/pleasing fans etc. ;] We need more film makers like him.

Yeah I noticed that too maybe its just the trailer though or who knows maybe when they first become zombies they have a little extra life in them and in a few days after they eat some human flesh and there stomacs explode from the rotten flesh inside of em they slow down.

I was quite shocked by the zombie, or it appears to be a zombie, that seems to sort of jump and latch on to one person in the trailer. That just feels like something completely different that what we've seen from Romero zombie flicks in the past and I quite liked it.

Yeah the one that was on the table right? Well there was one zombie in Dawn of the Dead that moved pretty quickily remember when they where in the shopping area and the little bastard was hidding behind cloths and jumped out after them. Who knows maybe 1 in 1000 zombies has the abilty to move quick only time will tell less then a month and a week and we get our old school zombies back.

I think the thing I'm happiest about with Diary of The Dead is the fact that it's a true low budget indy affair. It gave Romero the ability to do the film the exact way that he wanted to do it without having to concede to some of the obvious studio interventions of the Land of The Dead. And of course that's a good thing. After having viewed the trailer any number of times now it seems to me that it feels so much more like a Romero movie than land did if you know what I mean...well at least the trailer feels that way.

Yeah, I'm not sure how scewed it is but it's definately tilted slightly so that should account for the view not necessarily being the same as what we see in the rest of the poster. Granted it seems like there are more zombies in view than probably should be, but I think it's plausible at least.

and yeah I really can't wait for this movie. I'm a huge Romero fan, he's one of my top five favorite horror directors, and seeing him get back to his more indy roots is just a treat t say the least.

I'm kind of the same way. When I first heard about it I didn't really feel like I wanted it. I liked Land of The Dead for the most part but it certainly wasn't at the top of the list of great Romero movies and it just didn't compare to the original trilogy, so the idea of him doing another one so quickly didn't appeal to me. At the same time however I didn't much like the idea of Romero doing a zombie movie outside of the brilliant universe he had already created, but as time has gone by and I've heard and seen more...well now I simply can't wait. I won't go into this looking for a classic by any means, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think the movie has the chance of being just that. Frankly I just want to see a ROMERO zombie flick, which I think we only partially got from Land Of The Dead.

The new poster is 348,969,098,598,395,734,987,530,957 times better than the old one.

I will never doubt Romero on a zombie flick. Never. Its not possible. Especially when he has gone back to his roots. He knows the genre too well...hell, he created the genre as far as I'm concerned.

Any fan who has doubts, probably was never a very good fan to begin with.

What I want info on is the soundtrack. Will that live up to the standards of the last three? And these titles are getting absurd. I think the "of the Dead" titles need to be thrown out the window. I was all for Land of the Dead being aptly titled "Dead Reckoning". I dunno, I just feel Romero has more creativity than this.

Frankly the "of the dead" title was played out by the time Day of The Dead hit so yeah, it would be nice to see something different. However, when it comes to Romero zombie flicks the "of the dead" thing has kind of become a staple of sorts, so I understand the desire to keep using them. It's kind of become a tradition of sorts.

she's not happy with it. she's asking for more being that george said this movie would reboot the series or genre. though she did say she liked the blair witch effect. she doesn't like any of the characters. also she says it's not as good without tom savini.

So, enough time has gone by, what is everyone's thoughts on this?

The first part was awesome, beautifully done, we got to see the first glimpse of the dead coming back...then it turned into that mummy flic and went south...the deep south.
The POV effect should never ever be used again.

My 2 cents...

With enough having passed I can honestly say I like it. It's not a fantastic film, and it doesn't come anywhere close to the heights of the original trilogy, but I enjoy it more than Land of The Dead and truly believe it feels more like a legitimate ROMERO movie.

Ravenheart

Its okay but its my least favorite of all Romero's zombie movies.

HTrooper
09-06-2008, 05:03 AM
I'll go with Land being my least favorite.
Diary could have been alot better if he just beefed up the story and slowed down on "the point".

A running joke was that the messages behind his first trilogy was an accident, and he ran with that...;)

Lets hope the sequel to Diary will be better...he had time to simmer, but all the signs are pointing for another letdown.

Muse
10-10-2008, 03:22 PM
Well, I finally got around to seeing this. I've gotta say, Romero should quit with the zombie stuff. He's set his name in stone as a great of the genre, but at this rate, he's gonna end up eroding that right off. Quit while he's ahead. I know most will say Dawn is his best, but imo, they've gradually gotten worse with each film he's done in the genre. The gap between Night, Dawn and Day wasn't much though, they were all great, but Day to Land, then to Diary, moon steps, lagging behind, so much. Land was still cool, enjoyable, but Diary, I'm not even sure what to think. It had it's little qualities, here and there, and I didn't hate it, some stuff was really cool, but overall, it wasn't a great movie. Not one I'll be watching again for a real good while, I imagine.

I know at the beginning of the movie they mention why they put the music,the commentary and such into it but I think it would have been a much better film without all that added in and left it with just the natural sounds.It did start out pretty good but ended up going downhill fast.

Yea ZC....good luck with this one. I have had shit for luck trying to watch it. Four attempts and I haven't made it halfway through on any of them. None of the characters are even remotely Romero-worthy (in terms of his character development (why is a big breasted blonde bimbo (4 B's) a main character in a Romero flick
?)), the dialog, I cannot even comprehend why Romero would write such drivel...and don't even get me started on that bitch of a main character's monotone narration.

I've been a Romero fan for a good part of my life, and loved ALL his Dead flicks up to this point. It does not feel like a Romero Dead flick whatsoever. It feels like just another crap DTV flick Dimension Extreme rushed out.

Chomp_on_this
10-15-2008, 04:38 PM
When it comes to Romero...trash should be no where in the vicinity. I want a smart/capable flick that has the ability to stand on its own two feet when the gore/zombies are taken out of the equation. When you look at the root of his films, Romero's Dead flicks have never been about blood and gore...they have been about problems us humans face and how or how we don't face them. Zombies are not the antagonists ... the decisions stupid people make are.

Fuck I'm all for shitty movies, I enjoyed the hell out of the Day of the Dead remake as well as Return on the Living Dead 5: RTTG,...there's just something wrong when the sole person you look up to, who has given such a good name for not only zombie films, but horror films in general, creates something of that caliber. To me, its kind of a let down.

I love my cheeseburgers, but sometimes I gotta have me a steak.

Twisted Sister
10-15-2008, 05:05 PM
I can understand and respect that :). I'm not saying it was his best, or near the top, no way, Jose', but I just didn't think it was bad at all, but to each their own I guess. I personally hated the Day remake, but can appreciate the opinion of those who liked it. :)

zombie commando
10-16-2008, 04:04 AM
I think it did feel like a Romero flick, just not a good Romero flick. Was I disappointed? Not really. I went in with zero expectation for this to be anything remotely good. Romero's always kind of written most of characters to be outlandishly stereotypical. I think it helps the setup for the delivery of those ham fisted social commentaries. It's just in this flick he delivers an 1000 megaton hammer bomb of satire over your brow. It's a vast underestimation of the audience. It didn't feel like a documentary. It felt more like a staged sermon.

I wonder if Romero is a republican. Just kidding....

Not the entire lake was murky though; there are still some good swimming holes. There were some neat little winks and nods to previous dead flicks, like the pokes at running zombies, or the way that the wealthy fortress kind of turned into a tomb like the mall from Dawn. There was the barn from Night, and the soldier from Land. I also thought the Amish dude was a kick, the hospital scene was cool, and there were certain twists and turns that I think would be very chilling in a less polished film, or something that felt more like an actual documentary.

It was really weird watching this and then watching the presidental debate. I'm hoping that George got his old man crankiness about the system out of his system and that his next entry into the zombie genre is more about spooking people rather than some politically charged bitch fest. All in all I wasn't totally disappointed, nor excited about it, but I am glad to own it. Let's face it, this beats the pants off some of the other crapola I install in my DVD library. Here's looking at you Boarding House ;).
