Today B-D was provided with five exclusive stills from George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead (set visit), which will have it’s world premiere Saturday, September 8 at the Midnight Madness portion of the Toronto International Film Festival (get your tickets here). 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.
