Some zombie tales - very much like the undead shambling about at their core - find a way of being resurrected. Take the zombie boom of the mid-'00s. Dawn of the Dead was revitalized for a modern movie-going audience. Elsewhere, George Romero's zombies "lived on" in Land of the Dead, and in some respects, fueled a comic book that was just getting its start at the time called "The Walking Dead."
It was around this period that a comic called Remains was introduced.
Written by Steve Niles and featuring illustrations caked with meat, gristle and irradiated pus by Kieron Dwyer, Remains gave readers a glimpse as a world unified by peace until, one day, someone presses the wrong button and the human race is practically annihilated. Focus shifts to Reno, Nevada where a casino blackjack dealer named Tom and a waitress named Tori attempt to get along with »

I don’t know much about director Colin Theys’ upcoming undead outing “Remains”, but I do know this: The new artwork is pretty badass. Sure, it’s got that comic book vibe that everyone seems to be going for these days, but I’m a sucker for those things, and this one is really well done. The film is currently in post-production, though the poster suggests that flick will see the light of day later this year. Assuming, of course, that everything goes according to plan. Need a synopsis? I happen to have one right here: The story centers on two lone survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world’s population to zombies. They take refuge in a vacant casino and fight a losing battle against the undead. Simple enough, right? “Remains” stars Miko Hughes, Evalena Marie, Grant Bowler, Lance Reddick, Tawny Cypress, Terry Shappert, Frank Taveres, »

Writer Steve Niles posted the following image to his Facebook page today: A behind-the-scenes look at Remains , now shooting in Connecticut for the Chiller network. What are you looking at? That's actor Grant Bowler, as Tom, inside a giant metal ball. If you're familiar with the graphic novel the film is based on, well, you'll know Tom uses this ball to avoid getting munched on by the hordes of zombies roaming Reno, Nevada's streets. This is cool because I thought this is one scene that would have been nixed based on budgetary constraints. Nice to see they're going for it. Colin Theys is directing. Evalena Marie, Lance Reddick, Miko Hughes, Tawny Cyrpress, Terry Shappert, Frank Taveres and Bobby Rice co-star. »
