‘Diary of the Dead’ Rises on DVD This May

George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead (review), his latest zombie fare, has been given a May 20 DVD release date from Genius Products. Full specs and art coming soon. With a story mixing elements of “The Blair Witch Project” and the long-running “Dead” series, the film will follow a group of college students shooting a horror movie in the woods who stumble upon a real zombie uprising. When the onslaught begins, they seize the moment as any good film students would, capturing the undead in a “cinema verite” style that causes more than the usual production headaches.
