Well this is getting ridiculous. George Romero’s nihilistic, gruesome third instalment of his Dead series, a film he had to drastically scale back from its original concept, was remade [poorly] in 2008, and even had a sequel. And now, it’s just been remade a second time! Bloody Disgusting have broken the news that Day of the Dead: Bloodline has been picked up in the US by Saban Films who will release it soon this year, possibly as a DirecTV exclusive before it becomes available on DVD and VOD. The director is  The Corpse of Anna Fritz’s Hèctor Hernández Vicens, which I have yet to see though was praised by many, but this still strikes me as a thoroughly lazy, pointless and rather sad exercise.

Day of the Dead follows a former medical student tormented by a dark figure from her past, who happens to be a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her.

The script is by Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson, while Sophie Skelton, Marcus Vanco, Jeff Gum, Lorina Kamburova, Nick Loeb, Rachel O’Meara, Debbie Sherman, Luke Cousins, Nathan Cooper, and Cristina Serafini star.

Is there anyone who’s actually excited by this?

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
