Zombies Rise In Rotting ‘Day of the Dead’ Imagery

Day of the Dead: Bloodline, a reimagining of George A. Romero’s cult classic, is set in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled world where a former med school student is tormented by a dark figure from her past. The only thing is, he’s a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her world. The half-human, half-zombie is horror veteran, Johnathon Schaech (Prom Night, Laid to Rest, Jackals), who plays Max, a modern take on Romero’s Bub from Romero’s 1985 masterpiece.

Bloody Disgusting has a trio of new shots from the Hèctor Hernández Vicens-directed film that show more of the film’s undead, including a rotting corpse that looks to have risen off an autopsy slab. Thanks to Fabien M. for sending them in.

Saban Films’ Day of the Dead: Bloodline is dated for theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on January 5, 2018.

    You can count on Brad Miska to keep us updated, to the second on anything and everything related to Johnathon Schaech. Nothing in the greater Schaech-verse happens without Brad’s notice. Ever vigilant, we horror fans can sleep soundly at night knowing that no detail related to Schaech, any low budget direct to video cash in’s in general, or Metallica’s grammy chances, will be missed.

    Thank you Brad. I thank you, the horror community in general thanks you, and I am sure somewhere the soul of the recently departed George Romero thanks you for highlighting this “film” that clearly gives his legacy the respect, effort and reverence it deserves

          I will have you know that my retinas are doodie free.

            Hey ….you know we are not supposed to talk about poop !!

            Hey, don’t single ME out pal. Tell that to all the people who talk about Halloween movies.

        • J Jett

          i can’t help it! i will definitely watch this new DAY film. LOL. i’m pretty sure i’m THE only person alive who actually went out and paid money to buy Steve Miner’s Mena Suvari DAY OF THE DEAD “remake”. (i know i should never admit that. LOL).

          • Simon Allen

            I will watch it when my “friend” forces me to see the illegal download he did .
            And ……no you are not the only one LOL .
            What can i say …..i’m a Steve Miner fan (that’s my excuse and i’m sticking to it)

      • J Jett

        you were thinking of me when you wrote that right?…………………………………LOL.
        how DARE you even think that my beloved RES EVIL & UNDERWORLD movies aren’t some of THE most amazing movies ever…………cough…….:)

        • Creepshow

          I cannot tell a lie. Yes, you were with me throughout the entire thought process.

  • Joshua

    I can’t wait! I love horror movies and I don’t critique something until I’ve watched it.

    • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

      Man. I want whatever pills you are taking.

      Also…cmon, level with me. You are Jonathan Schaech, aren’t you 😉

  • Joshua

    That image of that morgue zombie looks dope.

  • Drakr

    One can deduce the MTV quality, of this just by the tweeny shot of the two characters. Make up and unfazed hair. Fucking annoying.

  • Aaron Eiermann

    So far this looks like it has literally nothing to do with romeros day of the dead other than the title. A former medical student is plagued by a person from her past?! Hes supposed to be bub?! Sounds like a leaping fucking stretch.

  • I am not optimistic about this film at all…

  • Nefferson Taveira

    This does not look good in any sense.

  • Kane

    hey brad…. can you seriously not be a fucking chode for once. we all know this is no “re-imagining” it shares absolutely nothing with the original except the name so please stop trying to push it as such. we all know most users here are on to your bullshit and you should realize by now we know better so stop treating us like we are dumb.

    • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

      This raises an interesting question. Can something be considered a reimagining, if it’s entirely unimaginative?

      (HINT: It cannot)

  • J Jett

    HOW ABOUT A FREAKING TRAILER!! there must be a reason why a trailer hasn’t been released yet. hmmmmm…..i wonder what that reason is. 🙂
    even though i’m not really into TWD anymore, i do still think the show has THE best zombie fx/design ever created. Nicoter/KNB are simply THE best. so seeing these very meh…zombies in this new DAY film don’t help with making the film enticing to watch.

    • Simon Allen

      Your wish is Brads command !!!!
      …..The trailer has surfaced .

  • DS Ullery

    I don’t get why this project keeps receiving so much attention. Day of the Dead Contagium was a complete trash fire and the Steve Miner directed Day of the Dead was an okay enough flick when seen as a standalone zombie movie, but did absolutely nothing remarkable enough to earn the right to share the name. Neither film added much to the zombie genre , nor did they particularly honor Romero’s classic.
    So why is Bloody Disgusting trying to generate so much enthusiasm for this particular incarnation? Nothing about this flick suggests it will distinguish itself from the other attempts to cash in on the title. Is BD producing this or something? Let this thing crawl back under its rock and die a lonely death from neglect , for fuck’s sake. Either that or kill it with fire before it can spawn more.

    • Pete Burgess

      Smells a lot like they’re being paid for it.

    • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

      Because Brad Miska apparently owes a ton of money to the direct to video mafia, and endlessly shilling their soulless cash in is apparently the only way to repay them that doesn’t involve knee pads?

      Well…less knee pads at least

  • Dennis Chenier

    I know this is an unpopular opinion but the reason nobody can make a good Day of the Dead movie is because the original isn’t very good either. It did have one of my favorite and goriest deaths of all time, added with a very harrowing atmosphere, but that’s all it has working for it. The only way for this to work is to be completely different and keep the basic elements in place.

    • Joshua

      The original Day of the Dead isn’t very good? Wow I don’t know what to say about that other than you must not like horror movies.

      • disqus_uPh3WDxbQy

        Just because someone doesn’t love the original Day of the Dead does not mean they don’t like horror movies? It’s possible to have a differing opinion. Actually, only recently have people started liking Day of the Dead. I remember for years it was loathed by the horror community and critics alike. People can change their opinions over the years but it doesn’t make them any less of a fan. Do you love every “classic” that is praised? If not, then you also must not be a fan, according to your criteria. Next time think before passing judgment.

        • Joshua

          Sorry to break it to you but that’s exactly what it means. I can’t think of one horror movie classic or otherwise that I don’t like actually. Those people that have just recently started liking Day of the Dead like you say are just trendy casual horror fans. As a true horror fanatic that I am, Day of the Dead has always been bad ass. It’s pure horror movie gold Bub.

          • disqus_uPh3WDxbQy

            I don’t whether to laugh or feel sorry for you. If anything you sound like the “trendy” one. So if critics or the horror community tell you that you should love a movie because it’s a “classic” in the making, you will automatically like it? I don’t believe you when you say you like 100% of what’s deemed “classic” and hate everything that isn’t. It’s absurd to say so. Whether it’s Psycho, Jaws, The Omen, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, The Exorcist, Scream, The Blair Witch Project, The Ring and so on, there’s always one that you don’t like for whatever reason.

    From the top image, this could be a remake of the Karate Kid.

  • I’d like a fuckin T R A I L E R.
    Every time a new image from this movie pops up I have less and less desire to see it

    • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

      A trailer could only lessen anticipation. You don’t give out free samples when you are trying to sell a shit sandwich

  • Brad Tyler

    The more I see of this the less I want to see it (which is not a lot to begin with). Looks/sounds like a terrible SyFy channel movie. YUK!

  • Jenny

    Looks great!


  • MrX13

    Still curious to see a freakin trailer!! Pics just don’t do it justice for us to see it.

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    The offer still stands Brad. If you owe these guys money we could probably help you out man. Judging from the budget it couldn’t be more than what? Like $10, $20 bucks?

    Or if they are holding your family members hostage and forcing you to shill their shitty movie, you don’t have to bend over and take it. I know a guy. A guy with a very particular set of skills…just say the word brad

  • NOCC Monkey

    I can’t for the life of me think of one zombie film that has paid true homage to Romero since Savini’s 1990 Night of the Living Dead.
