Survival of the Dead Featured in April’s Fangoria

FangoriaMany thanks to Brandon Nichols over at mPRm Public Relations for looping the A World on Fire community on the latest news for George Romero’s next film. Horror magazine Fangoria is doing a lengthy feature on the upcoming film in the April issue before the actual XBox release on May 1st.

Ahhh … Fangoria. Brings back memories of my freshman year of college where I had a stack of them on my night stand for late night reading. It made for great nightmare fuel, but it also introduced me to Guillermo del Toro who would later rock my world with The Devil’s Backbone, and then smash it with Pans Labyrinth.

When I received the news of the upcoming issue, I headed over to Fangoria’s site to cull some information about the article, but I ran into a “under construction” page which links to their backup blog. It was a sad sight to see. The once great magazine of gore, chainsaws, and all things horrible appears to be reduced to every other blog I’ve seen in the past few years. I hope this is a quick transition and not indicative of times to come.

Moving on …

Survival of the Dead is looking to be released on May 1st on the XBox marketplace followed by a limited screening in theaters yet to be determined. If you don’t feel like waiting and you live in the NYC area, you can catch a screening at the Lincoln Center this weekend. At the time of this posting, tickets are still available so dig it. Otherwise, see you in May. Virtually, of course and then maybe in the theater in June.

  1. Man. I saw Land of the Dead twice in theaters… I hope this one comes close enough for me to see. Of course I don’t WANT to wait, but my days of just going to New York stopped about 4 years and 2 months ago.

    1. I wanted to like Land of the Dead, but I don’t know why it didn’t do it for me especially since I can’t point to one major thing I disliked about it. I’ll have to see it again.

      1. There were a lot of things not to like about it. It was just a TAD bit campy. I liked it anyway, though. :p

  2. [...] A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead will get feature coverage and be featured on the cover in the April issue of Fangoria. (A World on [...]

  3. I don’t know what it was with Land Of The Dead but I just couldn’t get into it. I really enjoy most of Romero’s work but not this one. I hope Survival Of The Dead turns out better.

    Hey Firestarters,

    On behalf of Magnolia Pictures and the movie’s producers and director, we’d like to thank everyone for their help and understanding in not posting links to any pirate copies of George A. Romero’s “Survival of the Dead” on this site (or any other forums / blogs / sites) when the movie leaks … .. the U.S. street dates are 30th April for VOD and in selected theatres from 28th May, so there’s not too long to go now until release.

    Should anyone have any queries relating to ‘piracy’, pre-release guidelines and leaks etc on this movie or should anyone wish to report any pirated files or links, please feel free to e-mail and / or telephone us at any time : our ‘door’ is always open to genuine movie fans.

    Conversely, if anyone really feels compelled to try and upload / download a pirate copy or to attempt to capture screenings – which, naturally, the director, producers and distributors would prefer you didn’t – then please keep it on-the-down-low / off-the-radar / for your personal use only and don’t ‘broadcast’ / publish it on the net : for which, thank you.

    To further clarify the suggested / requested guidelines for “Survival of the Dead”, if you want good quality, non-pirated, previews, then an early-preview trailer is already available for fans and bloggers to post / host / share etc at http://www.myspace.com/officialgeorgeromero and the official site at http://www.magnetreleasing.com/survivalofthedead... .. the full, official trailer is also due to premiere soon and for further details of on-line promotions for this movie and Magnolia releases generally, check-out http://www.magpictures.com and their official YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/MagnoliaPictures... .. and keep an eye on these official sources for details of further preview material and pre-release promotions.

    Many thanks, once again, for your support and for respecting the wishes of George Romero and the movie’s producers and distributors.

    All The Best,

    WEB SHERIFF
