Blu-ray Review: Land of the Dead (Collector's Edition)

Land of the Dead
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Director: George A. Romero
Screenwriter: George A. Romero
Cast: Simon Baker, Dennis Hopper, Asia Argento, Robert Joy, Eugene Clark, John Leguizamo
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R/Not Rated | 93/97 Minutes
Release Date: October 31, 2017

In 2005, 20 years after Day Of The Dead, Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero returned to the zombie subgenre he created with Land Of The Dead, the fourth entry in the writer-director’s Living Dead series.

Years after the zombie apocalypse, most of the United States is an uninhabited wasteland. Survivors have set up heavily fortified outposts across the country. In Pennsylvania, survivors have fled to the Golden Triangle district of Pittsburgh. Bordered by rivers and massive electric fences, Steel City has become a sanctuary for what’s left of humanity.

While most of the remaining population lives in squalor, the rich and powerful live comfortably in a luxury high-rise called Fiddler’s Green. Paul Kaufman (Dennis Hopper), the city’s Trump-esque ruler, has funded the Dead Reckoning project, an armored personnel vehicle that will bring the good people of Pittsburgh food and medical supplies, as well as necessities like liquor and cigars.

Blu-ray Review: Dawn of the Dead (Collector's Edition)

Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Director: Zack Snyder
Screenwriter: James Gunn
Cast: Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames, Jake Weber, Mekhi Phifer, Ty Burrell, Lindy Booth, Matt Frewer, Tom Savini, Ken Foree
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R/ Not Rated | 101 / 110 Minutes
Release Date: October 24, 2017

Directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) and written by James Gunn (Slither, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy series), 2004’s Dawn of the Dead is a remake of George A. Romero’s 1978 film of the same name. Arguably Snyder’s best film, and one of the better horror remakes of the past 20 years, the 2004 movie honors the original while offering a fresh, innovative take on the zombie subgenre.

A mysterious virus is turning people into flesh-eating zombies. Unlike Romero’s slow but relentless living dead, Snyder and Gunn pull from Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later playbook and apply the rabies-like symptoms of the 2002 film’s “Rage Virus” to their reanimated corpses, creating a horde of aggressive, fast-moving zombies that can run, jump, and climb. Essentially, the zombies of the new millennium are CrossFit enthusiasts on bath salts.

Interview: ‘Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse’ Cast

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse header image

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse isn’t your traditional zombie film. The horror comedy follows three boy scouts: Ben, Carter, and Augie (Ty Sheridan, Logan Miller, and Joey Morgan, respectively) and a strip club cocktail waitress, Denise (Sarah Dumont) as they try to survive the zombie apocalypse. Using their skills that they learned from boy scouts, plus Denise’s knowledge of guns, the four set out to find any fellow survivors and rescue high school seniors from the horde of zombies (ranging from humans to zombie cats) that are about to crash their seniors-only party.

Geeks Of Doom was recently invited to sit down with Sarah Dumont, Logan Miller, and Joey Morgan to talk about, well anything, from porn, to what they did to build chemistry. They also talked about what they learned from working on Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse — which hits theaters his Halloween — how they had to deal with some unruly cats, and how they would use what they learned to survive the zombie apocalypse. Check out our full interview here below.

Zombie BC #1 cover by Malcolm McClintonZombie B.C.
Written by Stephen Vold
Art by Steven Williams
Cover by Malcolm McClinton
Release Date: Available now
Cover Price: $2.99

Written by Stephen Vold with art by Steven Williams, Zombie BC takes the zombie apocalypse to its earliest incarnation.

Issue #1 is a well written episode showing a caveman hunter struggle to cope with and overcome the zombie horde his village became in his absence. The artist Steve Williams did a magnificent job in keeping the eyes engaged and gave us zombies without highlighting the gore as part of the character.

The story is told by an unseen narrator and basically shapes out the same struggle every zombie story covers. Every zombie story starts with the effort to understand the threat and being what it is, I believe a caveman would have no trouble with this. A caveman would also be well suited to deal with the threat a zombie threat. Unlike almost everyone on the TV series The Walking Dead, a caveman carries a melee weapon.
