George Romero’s Land of the Dead

Chris Ryall

Presenting a special adaptation of George A. Romero’s long-awaited zombie movie, set a number of years in the future after the end of his Dead trilogy (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead). In Land of the Dead, the walking dead roam an uninhabited wasteland and the living try to lead “normal” lives behind the walls of a fortified city. But outside the city walls, an army of the dead is evolving. Inside, anarchy is on the rise.

With the very survival of the city at stake, a group of hardened mercenaries is called into action to protect the living from an army of the dead. Adapted by Chris Ryall (Shaun of the Dead) and Gabriel Rodriguez (CSI: Secret Identity). This special collection features seven new pages of story and art, comprising a deleted scene from the movie, as well as an art gallery of covers, sample art and more.

This fourth in Romero’s now-classic zombie series had its UK premiere back in August 2005 at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where George himself appeared to a sell-out crowd and intimated that he is considering further entries in the series (hurray!). While not his finest, it is still a damned good horror movie and, as with his other movies, George has used the genre to illustrate and critique some of the more negative aspects of contemporary society (poverty, terrorism, politicians who trade in fear); it is this social aspect which I think elevates Romero’s zombie tales way above the mere splatter-horror some would seek to tag them as – this is good stuff. There is a review of the EIFF screening of the movie over on the FPI Blog.
