Night of the Living Dead Prequel ‘Origins’ Moving Forward with Radar Pictures

9 hours ago

In George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, they watched the TV intently, wanting to know why the dead were walking just outside their boarded-up windows. Now, more than 45 years later, George’s son Cameron looks to explore the definitive answer to that question in Origins. A partially crowdfunded prequel to Night of the Living Dead, Origins now has another backer in Radar Pictures.

Variety reports that Radar Pictures will produce Cameron Romero’s Origins with production slated to begin this year. Cameron Romero (who, like his father, has an extensive background in making commercials and has also directed six feature films) will direct Origins off a screenplay he wrote with Darrin Reed and Bryce C. Campbell:

“Set in the turbulent late sixties, the film tells the story of a brilliant scientist – Dr. Alan Cartwright – who strikes a deal with the military that will give him all »

Black Sunday Us Release Version Blu-ray Announced

10 hours ago

There was more than one way to enjoy Mario Bava’s Black Sunday when it came out in the early 1960’s. After making its Italy debut in ’60, an alternate version of Black Sunday hit the silver screen in the Us, giving audiences a re-edited look at the reign of terror caused by Asa Vajda’s (Barbara Steele) curse, and soon the folks at Kino Lorber will bring this Us release version of Black Sunday out on Blu-ray.

Kino Lorber revealed that their Blu-ray of the Us release version of Mario Bava’s Black Sunday will be available beginning February 24th. The Blu-ray includes a high-definition upgrade of elements from the original 35mm film and features the re-edits made by American International Pictures back in the early 1960s before the movie was shown to Us audiences.

Watch the Short Zombie Film ‘Isolated’

12 hours ago

Evan’s experiencing a very rude awakening. He lifts his head from the steering wheel to see the hood of his taxi rammed into the underbelly of a truck. Someone else’s blood is spattered on his face, and standing not far from his passenger door window are two zombies… the first of many Evan will encounter in Isolated, the new CGI-animated short film from Tomas Vergara that we have for Daily Dead visitors to watch.

Clocking in at about five minutes, Peak Pictures’ Isolated features plenty of heart-pumping suspense, an intriguing story, and zombies that emerge slowly from the shadows, though they are capable of sprinting down the city streets (effectively evoking both George A. Romero’s living dead and the zombies of Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead remake).

Chilean co-writer/director Vergara revealed in an interview with The Daily Dot that the majority of Isolated was shot with performance capture technology, »

Viewers saw the wild, wild West get a high-tech twist in 1973’s Westworld, the late Michael Crichton’s directorial debut that takes place in an adult amusement park populated by androids. Next year HBO is bringing us back to the park with their series reimagining of Crichton’s cautionary technology tale, and now the first photo of Ed Harris as the villainous Man in Black has been released.

EW unveiled the first image of Ed Harris as The Man in Black, a character described as “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” Last month, a photo of Ingrid Bolsø Berdal’s character taking aim with a rifle was also released.

“A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin”, Westworld is a drama series comprised of one-hour episodes that will premiere on HBO in 2015. The show is executive produced, written, and directed by Jonathan Nolan »
