Mail Order Zombie: Episode 100

After 100 weeks in a row, Brother D and Miss Bren celebrate by presenting Mail Order Zombie #100, the Dawn of the Dead special! Brother D has seen both George A. Romero's original Dawn of the Dead and the Zach Snyder-directed remake more than once, but Miss Bren . . . ? She'd not seen either of them prior to watching them for this episode. What will happen when a zombie-movie-watching-veteran and a relative newcomer sit down for a discussion about one of the benchmarks of zombie cinema? Who will walk away alive? Who will walk away with divorce papers? Who will call in? We'll give you the answer to that last question; Mail Order Zombie received congratulatory phone calls, holiday wishes and thoughts on Dawn of the Dead from the MOZ Family and fellow podcasters, and you'll get to hear all this in MOZ #100. Brother D will also turn his critical ears toward the scores from both films, and in a special Post Script, he'll discuss the 1979 Dawn of the Dead novelization (written by George A. Romero and Susanna Sparrow). Where else are you going to hear discussion about Dawn of the Dead, taking over a shopping mall, Star Wars action figures, Stephen King, Darkman, Frank Lloyd Wright, The Evil Dead, Quarantine, Peter David, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and multiple personality disorder? Right here! (The Zombie Beat and the Feedback Discussion will be back next week.)

'Survival of the Dead' finds US distribution!

The Wagner/Cuban Companies' Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that it has acquired US rights to George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead, the latest in the legendary and beloved series of zombie films which bowed at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals earlier this year. Romero, one of the most influential and respected horror auteurs of all time, has created a new, terrifying vision that combines viscerally gory undead action with biting social commentary and a return to the black humor and playfulness of his seminal film, Dawn of the Dead. Magnet will release the film as part of its Ultra VOD program this spring, debuting it on VOD platforms nationwide a month before its theatrical release.

Like its predecessors, George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead takes place in a desperate, nightmarish world where the dead walk the earth, relentlessly attacking the living. It is the story of Plum Island – a beautiful refuge whose isolation allows two powerful families to maintain a semblance of order in the wake of the zombie holocaust. But as the inhabitants slowly die off, the two clans become sharply divided: the O’Flynns believe that the undead must be destroyed without exception, while the Muldoons insist that afflicted loved ones be kept “alive” until a cure is found. The result is an escalating showdown with echoes of a classic Western stand-off that erupts in brutality and violence.

“George A. Romero is an undisputed cinematic legend, and we’re honored to be bringing another installment of this incredible series of films to horror fans,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “Survival... is smart, extremely fun and a worthy addition to the ...of the Dead franchise.”

Says Romero, “I’m a big admirer of the team at Magnolia. They’re creative and passionate, and I’m excited to put Survival... in their hands.”

This is Mail Order Zombie's Thanksgiving Leftovers episode! Brother D reviews two poultry-themed zombie movies this week - Zombeak, written and directed by Sam Drog, and Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead from director Lloyd Kaufman who swings by the show for an interview in which he talks about Poultrygeist as well as the "giant conspiracy of devil-worshipping international media conglomerates." (And for the record, I HAVE read Mr. Kaufman's books! I may not enjoy all his movies, but I certainly respect the man and his fight for artistic independence . . .) The new Zombie Aptitude Test question is revealed to the MOZ Family (November's ZAT answers will be reviewed next week), and Miss Bren rounds out the show when she joins the Fedback Discussion.
