Lock your doors and board up your windows, horror film writer-director George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Creepshow) returns to the genre he pioneered with his latest zombie movie, Diary of the Dead. There’s a trailer here for the film, which opens February 15. I know where I’m taking my sweetie for Valentine’s Day!
And if you’re looking for something to fill the zombie-less void while you’re waiting, I’d suggest World War Z by Max Brooks (son of the famed comedian, Mel Brooks!). It’s a gripping tale about the worldwide struggle to avert a full-scale undead apocalypse. I give it my highest recommendation. Sci-fi and comic book writer J. Michael Straczynski is reportedly working to adapt the book into a screenplay for Brad Pitt’s production company.
