‘Day of the Dead: Bloodline’ Unleashes a Stalker Zombie in an Exclusive New Clip

Today, we're happy to debut an exclusive clip from Day of the Dead: Bloodline, the new zombie yarn from director Hèctor Hernández Vicens (The Corpse of Anna Fritz) inspired by George A.

Day Of The Dead: Bloodline Review

Remember how in 2008 we all thought a Day Of The Dead remake co-starring Nick Cannon was the lowest low? Well, sorry 2016 us – it’s only gotten worse. Hèctor Hernández Vicens’ Day Of The Dead: Bloodline is – against all odds – an even more ill-advised rehashing than Steve Miner’s. How? Hold on, let me unravel the mile-long scroll of notes I scribbled…ah. How about digitally abhorrent CGI scars and blood splatters? Horrendous Adr that starts the film with mismatched voices to mouths? Angled camera shots of half-empty rooms – like, who watched 1985’s Day Of The Dead and decided it needed more rape? If you’re going to remake history, there better be a good reason – case and point.

Sophie Skelton stars as Zoe Parker, a med student whose graduation is put on hold when the zombie apocalypse hits. She escapes Whittendale University Medical Center and ends up at High Rock

One Curious Zombie Leaps To The Rescue In New Day Of The Dead: Bloodline Clip

A twisted, cold-hearted monster features in this newly-released clip for Day of the Dead: Bloodline – and we’re not referring to the undead.

In fact, it’s a reanimated zombie that winds up saving the day, as Sophie Skelton’s heroine comes face-to-face with a sexual harasser (John Schaech) named Max. What follows is an unnerving exchange between Skelton and Schaech’s respective survivors, before the latter makes an unwanted advance.

Whether intentional or not, this Bloodline clip, one which arrives on the eve or release, appears to be ripped straight from the headlines, with the only difference being that a flesh-munching zombie arrives just in time to thwart an attempted rape. Because who said the undead always have to be portrayed as the bad guys?

Story-wise, Day of the Dead: Bloodline takes place in a “post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled world where a former med school student is tormented by a dark figure from her past.

Day of the Dead: Bloodline First Look and Release Date Revealed

Day of the Dead: Bloodline First Look and Release Date Revealed
Saban Films has released the first poster for their Day of the Dead remake, which has been titled Bloodline. We also have the first image from the upcoming remake, along with the release date. Horror legend George A. Romero, the man responsible for creating the zombie genre as we know it, passed away this year, but his legacy is going to live on for many years to come. For better or for worse, that means some of his classic movies are going to be remade. Or in this case, "reimagined." While Bloodline isn't necessarily being billed as a Day of the Dead remake, that seems to be what we're getting here.

The Day of the Dead: Bloodline poster itself, if you had no idea it was related to George A. Romero's classic, is pretty effective. The red lettering for the title is bunched off to the left and the

Analeigh Tipton to Headline Parasitic Thriller 'Viral' for 'Catfish' Directors

Analeigh Tipton to Headline Parasitic Thriller 'Viral' for 'Catfish' Directors
Analeigh Tipton is in negotiations to star in the horror-thriller Viral, formerly known as Pest, which has Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Catfish) attached to direct. We first reported on the project back in July, when Dimension Films picked up the distribution rights. At the time, Mark Tonderai was set to direct, but he is no longer involved in the project.

The story centers on a parasitic outbreak that causes its hosts to crave their fellow humans, with alien tentacles growing from their bodies. Analeigh Tipton is playing a teenager named Stacey, who lives in a peaceful suburb with her parents and younger sister Emma, when their lives are upended by this outbreak. They become trapped within their quarantined city as the infected grow more and more violent. More casting news is expected to come in the near future, as the filmmakers begin to lock in Analeigh Tipton's co-stars.

Mark Tonderai the brains behind ‘Day of the Dead’ remake
(Cbr) House at the End of the Street director Mark Tonderai will remake George A. Romero’s 1985 zombie film Day of the Dead for Millennium Films. Deadline offers a one-sentence summary of the remake: “In this new version, years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.” Millennium announced the remake in July, with "Texas Chainsaw 3D" producers Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell attached. Tonderai wrote the script with Lars Jacobson, and they’re looking for a summer 2014 release.

Day of the Dead Remake is Still Happening, Mark Tonderai Tapped to Direct

Dear God help us all: The cinematic geniuses who collectively coughed up “Texas Chainsaw 3D” are presently hard at work on yet another “Day of the Dead” remake. This time around, the re-telling of George A. Romero’s zombie picture will be tackled by none other than “House at the End of the Street” director Mark Tonderai. Why do we need another remake of “Day of the Dead”? I’m guessing it’s because director John Luessenhop’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D” made some scratch at the box office earlier this year. And everyone knows that the boys and girls in Hollywood absolutely adore cash. Any kind of cash. If the moviegoers were willing to pay good money to see someone defecate inside a plastic bag for 90 minutes, we’d get a trilogy. In 3D. The latest remake reportedly takes place after the zombie apocalypse has destroyed most of the planet.

'Day Of The Dead' Remake Gets A Director, Melanie Laurent Preps Second Feature As Helmer & More

No, you’re not imagining things. Just five years from a 2008 direct-to-dvd low-budget remake, a new cheap remake of George A. Romero’s “Day Of The Dead” is shuffling across our screens next year courtesy of Millennium Films and Campbell Grobman Films. Deadline reports “House At The End Of The Street”—aka that Jennifer Lawrence horror movie—helmer Mark Tonderai has been tapped to direct the remake from a screenplay he co-wrote with Lars Jacobson. This modern-day version takes place “after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, [where] a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.” Production is set to start next summer. Although we weren’t quite as taken with it as others were (read our mixed review here), John Krokidas’ directorial debut “Kill Your Darlings” made a big splash earlier this year and has made a certain studio take note.
