Retro ‘Day of the Dead’ Poster Highlights Johnathon Schaech’s “Max” [Exclusive]

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 an exclusive look at the official poster for the Hèctor Hernández Vicens-directed film that highlights Schaech’s Max, while also giving off a heavy retro vibe.

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

  • Pete Burgess

    Do you guys owe Johnathon Schaech money or something?

    • xcalibrate ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      It’s becoming almost a parody, isn’t it. You’ve said what I, and others have been thinking.

      • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

        Kinda the point 😉

    • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

      No but Brad Miska obviously does
      …a lot

    • Saturn

      No, but Schaechy owes me a tenner from last time we were down the pub, he reckoned he was going to borrow it to get a round in, but he scarpered through the toilet window.
      Bloody cheapskate.

  • Simon Allen

    Come on Creepshow ……..say something !!!!! :-)).

  • J Jett

    this poster is pretty terrible.

    • Necro

      Really J you don’t?

      • J Jett

        yeah, actually both posters for this (the other poster showing the “floating” zombie) are horrible IMO. hopefully the movie will at least be enjoyable enough to watch!

  • I like the poster… Not so much the trailer, or anything else pertaining to this film (aside from what we’ve seen on the gore effects).

  • The chicken man

    Who the hell is Johnathon Schaech????

    • IWC-3PO

      Half Man. Half Myth. 100% Legend.

      • Saturn

        150% Legend.

    • Saturn

      You, sir, are obviously a troll.


      How dare you frequent a horror site if you’re not clued up on the legends of the genre like Karloff, Price, Cushing, Lee, Chaney (Sr AND Jr) , Lugosi & Schaech?

      The guy is THE most legendary of legendary horror legends.
      Bow your head with shame……

    • Justin McGill

      “you’re fired.. you’re fired.. You’re fired..”

  • IWC-3PO

    The Horror Icon!!! That loud “whoosh” you heard was ladies panties dropping around the world.

    • Saturn

      Either that or Saudi Arabia’s response to Trump’s decision on Jerusalem…..

  • Creepshow

    *drops to knees, raises hands to the sky*

    Lord Schaech will rise!


    • Saturn

      Jesus Schaech Super Star!

      Countries around the world are aggressively reinforcing support beams in large structures, shielding crucial electronic systems, and actively moving population centers away from major faultlines in preparation. Even top scientists cannot estimate exactly what effect unleashing this much pure acting energy, in such a single, massive dose will do to existing infrastructures, wildlife populations, or modern society as we know it, but the one thing they unanimously agree on? …It’s going to be BIG

      • Saturn

        Personally I have enough water for around a month, plenty of dried food, medical supplies and plenty of other Prepper Survival Gear – so I’m pretty much ready.
        I do worry though for some of my neighbours, they really aren’t prepared at all. They think that the new Day is just another zombie movie, one amongst many others.
        I pray for them daily and hope that they will be able to control themselves when they actually get to see HIS performance. I tell them that it’s going to be legendary – they just laugh and say “man, NO one actor can possibly channel Peter Cushing/Vincent Price & Lon Chaney Sr in such a LEGENDARY performance”.
        Oh but they will be surprised. They all will…

        The performance of IT at the global cinema will pale in comparison to the new Day that is Dawning……

      • J Jett

        LOL!! 🙂

  • Necro

    I must admit I do like the poster.

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    If ripoff = retro then indeed. This movie is retro as fuck. And this poster?
    …so retro

    All hail Schaech. For the door is the key, and the key is the Schaech. May we all be reborn in his image

    • Saturn

      Indeed – with all the shitty stuff happening in the world I think we can all agree that the end is near, and it’s time for the second coming of Scheich.

    • Schaech for President.

      • Saturn

        Why would He limit Himself to just being POTUS when he could be Emperor Schaech?
        An Empire based upon His wisdom and teachings?
        Wow – count me IN!

        • You had me at Schaech <3

  • I’d like to just take a moment to step back and appreciate the Bloody Disgusting community and their undying ability to brighten an otherwise shitty day with hilarious Schaech quips.

    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Long live the Schaech flesh!

    • Saturn

      We should start an online campaign to get Schaechy the role of Freddy Krueger – yet another bow to his legendarily legendary horror legend C.V.

      Schaechy for Krueger 2018!

      • J Jett

        Saturn, you KNOW Schaech can redo any role, male or female, and he would be amazing in it!! 🙂

        • Saturn

          I know, right?
          Even if you just stop and imagine Him in the role for a second or two you will follow that thought with Robert who????

    • J Jett

      Kirkio, i agree 100%. some of the great people who post on this site really do add laughs/brightness to my day as well. 🙂

  • Cool poster, terrible trailer. Hard pass.

  • PacMan Cereal

    Love the poster. I am currently watching a movie called ‘Acts Of Vengeance’ co-starring the one, the only, the immortal Jonathan Shaech!
