‘Day of the Dead: Bloodline’ Trailer Assaults With Nasty Zombies and Buckets of Gore!

Director Hèctor Hernández Vicens is serving up a bold new vision of George Romero’s classic with Saban Films’ Day of the Dead: Bloodline, kicking off 2018 with bite.

We showed you some brand new images just yesterday, and today brings the official trailer via IGN. Not only does it introduce the remake’s new version of beloved zombie Bub, but it’s also loaded with gross-out violence that, dare we say, makes this one look like a blast.

Mind you, nothing will ever compare to Romero’s Day of the Dead, but the film’s second remake looks to be a fun (and insanely gory) zombie flick in its own right.

In the film, “A small group of military personnel and survivalists dwell in an underground bunker as they seek to find a cure in a world overrun by zombies.”

Bloodline arrives in theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on January 5, 2018.

The film stars Sophie Skelton, Johnathon Schaech, Marcus Vanco, Jeff Gum (Exeter, The Vault), Lorina Kamburova (Nightworld, Leatherface Death Race 4), Nick Loeb, Rachel O’Meara, Debbie Sherman, Luke Cousins, Nathan Cooper, Lillian Blankenship, and Cristina Serafini. Campbell Grobman Films (Leatherface, Hellboy) produces with Jeff Rice.

    DAMN!

    This movie stars the great Johnathon Schaech. That right there makes it a 5 star movie. Schaech is right up there with Wingard when you discuss the great ones in the industry.

  • jurgmandr

    gore looks good but past that ehh… we’ll see. I’m not expecting anything that great.

  • Creepshow

    I just Schaeched myself.

    • Kori Batchelor

      I smell an Oscar for Schaechypoo, the greatest living actor of this or any generation. We are so lucky to be able to witness this, probably his greatest performance ever. I am not worthy. None of us are worthy. God bless you, Mr. Schaech.

      • Creepshow

        You just count your lucky stars, that you were able to witness the “greatness of Schaechness” in your lifetime.

        • Saturn

          I reckon it’s about time they changed the name of the Oscar statuette to the Oschaecher – it makes sense to do so, as they will definitely do it after J.S. passes over, so change it now – show the guy the damn respect he deserves!

    • J Jett

      LOL!!
      BEST.COMMET.EVER!!! 🙂

  • Matthew Landers

    1. Gore looks nice.
    2. Why are they fast? If they are truly dead . . . . yadda, yadda, yadda.
    3. I will watch the shit out of this when it shows up on Syfy Channel in 6 months.

    • ShadowInc

      You would think that if one were doing a “Romero zombie property”, slow moving zombies would be a precept one would stick to. However, I can’t say I mind it, as I may be one of the few who really liked Zak Snyder’s DAWN remake.

      • James

        I really enjoyed Dawn of the Dead despite the fast zombies. This on the other hand looks atrocious.

        • ShadowInc

          It might just be. However, it won’t kill me to check it out, when it turns up on Netflix, or Sci Fi. ; )

          • James

            I’m sure it would be fun to watch for free with a few drinks.

          • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

            I would watch flies screw for a few free drinks. This movie though? Not so sure

      • J Jett

        ShadowInc, actually the DAWN remake is pretty much universally like/loved. it’s considered (from most people) to be of the best remakes ever made.

  • pablitonizer

    This looks as bad as the 2008 reboot

    • jc18241

      That movie is never to be spoken of!

    • J Jett

      i actually like the 2008 DAY movie! LOL. i went and actually bought it when it was released (yes, i’m a sick person. LOL).

      • DS Ullery

        My take on that flick is if it hadn’t used the title or tried to tie some character names into it (Rhodes and so on), it might actually have gone over better as a standalone, random zombie movie. I enjoyed it well enough on those terms. It’s when you bring what Saturn there referred to as “the Romero baggage” into the mix that it suffers badly by comparison.

        As a one shot, original zombie movie, I thought Steve Miner’s Day was interesting and entertaining enough. I’ll admit I’ve seen it more than once. They just shouldn’t have tried to fashion it as a remake of Day of the Dead in the first place.

        This new one looks to skew closer to the basic setting of Romero’s day..but holy crap does this trailer look bad.

        • J Jett

          DS Ullery, i agree w/ everything you wrote. 🙂

  • Day of the Dead 2008 seems to be a masterpiece compared to this dreck, at least that’s what I can tell from the trailer which looks like complete utter shit.

    • Joe Archer

      No, it’s the other way around.

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    Jesus Christ. Full disclosure time, how much money DOES Bloody Disgusting have invested in this movie? The jig is up man, it’s time to come clean. Maybe we can help. Brad, please tell me you didn’t mortgage the house did you?…Brad?

    Seriously, I’ve never seen anyone try to push a turd quite this hard. Ease up man, or your going to prolapse, and no one wants to see that…just like this movie

  • Necro

    Gore looks excellent, but beyond that……..

    • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

      Agreed. If only the writers were as creative as the FX team

      Well…they aren’t ENTIRELY in creative. I mean “Re-imagining” sounds a lot better than “lazy rip off” doesn’t it? How does “reimagining” even work?

      “Hey I have an idea! People like Dawn Of The Dead right? So, IMAGINE if that movie was MY movie. Yeah! Genius!”

  • ShadowInc

    Brand spankin’ new looking military hummers breaks down … because … well… drama. : D

    • Saturn

      It’s something to do with the wrong kind of dust particles.

  • ShadowInc

    I can see what the director is going for, and there is some essence of the DAY story in there, so I’m not going to shit all over this. I’ll give it a shot.

  • James

    Wow this looks painfully generic and absolutely awful.

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    “Re-imagining” sounds a lot better than “lazy rip off” doesn’t it? How does “reimagining” even work?

    “Hey I have an idea! People like Dawn Of The Dead right? So, IMAGINE if that movie was MY movie. BOOM! Genius!”

  • Saturn

    So it seems that the general consensus is “meh” from what I have read so far.
    I’m going out on a limb here and going to be the complete opposite – I think it looks like it may be just fine. It looks better than around about 95% of the shitty zombie movies we’ve had since the rebirth (28 Days/Shaun/Dawn remake). It definitely looks better than the remake from a few years back, and that Contagion abortion – so I’m going in with an open mind without all the Romero baggage (which of course comes with the territory when you’re using His name to sell your product).
    Will it be as good as the original Day? Probably not, but still, it may be a fun ride.

    Oh, and in case you didn’t know, Johnathon Schaech is in it – so that makes it a bona fide horror classic already.

    There’s plenty of room left in hell for this movie.

    • J Jett

      i’m with you Saturn. imo it doesn’t look all that great but it looks like it could be decent-ish. and HELL YES to everything Johnathan Schaech! 🙂

  • Nick Blackford

    Looks terrible.

  • I feel assaulted alright.

  • Saying Like It Is

    Might be fun due to excellent gore but the way the actors speak sounds really awkward.

  • Graham Dalrymple

    The fx look decent but the rest looks like utter dog shit.still trying to wrap my head round the half human half zombie crap their spouting.and why does “bub” resemble the joker? Utter garbage,stop throwing relentless articles about this kak at us

    • Joe Archer

      “stop throwing relentless articles about this kak at us” Or you could just not read it, you fucking idiot.

  • J Jett

    it doesn’t look very original or very good but i without a doubt will still happily watch this. at least the gore/fx look good! why did they make Johnathan Schaech’s mouth look like that? it looks really ridiculous.

    • Creepshow

      Yeah, his mouth is awful (but not as bad as Superman’s mouth in Justice League). It doesn’t look like he died by a zombie attack. It looks like he died trying to eat a cactus. Not to mention the McFly hair.

    • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

      All I can think of every time I see him is “Why so serious?”

  • DS Ullery

    Needlessly hyper kinetic action punctuated by blasts of gore and peppered with moments of legitimately terrible acting on display. Ugh. I’m even less interested than I was prior to watching the trailer. This’ll be lining three dollar special discount bargain bins in Dollar General locations everywhere by next summer. Pass.

  • LivingDeadMan

    Could be good. Could be shit. I’ll reserve judgement until I’ve seen it.

  • Fufv rur45

    Another way to piss on the memory of G.R. Second shitty attempt at a remake. Bub is the zombie stalker. Fx looks impressive. Otherwise, forgettable syfy channel shit. Total fkn pass.

    • Martin Maxon

      Actually, George A. Romero was a writer on this film.
      Pretty sure he’s not pissing on himself (or was not).

      • Fufv rur45

        Who knows. Disgrace to his work regardless. If he did most likely as a consultant. Looks like shit. Rather watch the original. Doubtful he was into golden showers.

        • theundead

          Just shut the hell up

      • NixEclips

        LOL

    • FortesqueX

      He has a “Story by” credit, because he wrote the original. He had nothing to do with this remake otherwise. Dumbass.

      • Fufv rur45

        No shit sherlock. The asshat that responded to me said that. Romero wouldnt touch it w a 10 ft pole. Learn to read fuckwit.

  • Jon Rector

    the gore Does look great..and, seems true-ish to the old one, but with modern tropes that might make it not great–understand the criticism. but, my first reaction to the article was what happened to the Leatherface movie??!–i live in southern illinois, so i didn’t really expect it to play here..but, how’d it do/when’s it coming out on dvd, etc…reactions??–seen a lot of hype, and then..nothing…this trailer looks better than i would think–for true horror fans, but it’s not gonna draw in the new “walking dead” fans tat whoever produced this prolly wants….i will try to see it, though.

    • Steve Barnard

      The Leatherface movie sucks. They don’t understand Leatherface, they don’t even understand leather, they have him using fresh skin. Supposed to be the back story of the Jedidiah Sawyer Leatherface but there’s no Cook or Hitchhiker or grave robbing, just a bunch of meh.

    • Leatherface comes out on blu-ray 12/19.

  • Kyle Cole

    Watched the red band trailer on YouTube earlier. This movie looks awesome!! Can’t wait to see it!

  • This almost reminds me somewhat of the idea behind Romero’s unused “bigger” script for Day. I’m surprised by the scope of this. I honestly expected it to be a super low budget, limited location kind of thing. I’ll certainly be giving it a chance.

    • Necro

      After he re-did ‘Dawn of the Dead’ (which I truly love) I was actually hoping to see Zack Snyder take this on. But ‘DC’ came calling with millions for his pocket so I guess I can’t really blame the guy.

  • El_Fez

    Well, that looks like shit.

    • theundead

      Yes you do

    • Joe Archer

      No it doesn’t. And it looks WAY better than the piece of shit from 2008.

      • Necro

        I will definitely agree there about it looking better than ’08’s piece of absolute shit!

      • zid

        I’m pretty liberal as far as enjoying bad movies goes and this just looks cheaply done and poorly edited.

  • Aaron King

    Doesn’t look bad, but what was the point remaking this movie again? And why is it called Day of the Dead: Bloodline? Makes it sounds like a sequel.

    • theundead

      Who’s forcing you to watch it?

  • Gambit

    I was sceptical until the sex scene!

    Acting – 0
    Gore – 8
    Movie – 6

  • Maxime C

    Effective trailer.
    Sure the movie won’t be that good though.

  • Well, could have been better.
    But at the same time could have been worse.
    At least on a technical level it looks competent. We’ll see.
    Finally they dropped a trailer.

  • Brad Tyler

    First impressions are it looks terrible. If it wasn’t a “remake” of Day and it didn’t sell itself as something to be compared to GAR’s classic, then it might’ve stood a chance as an okay zombie flick. Looks nice and gory but that acting.. URGH! I’ll watch it but my expectations are VERY low.

    • theundead

      Always looking for something to whine about

  • Saturn

    I dunno, Day Of The Dead : Space Station has a certain ring to it…

  • Alanmac

    Well I for one have definitely been a critic of the photos they’ve been releasing but I have to say that trailer looks pretty damn good. Probably WAY beyond the expectations most of us had. The cast looks ridiculous, (with the Abercrombie soy kids), but I’m definitely gonna have to see this now.

    • blackie_chan

      I love when someone comments the exact words i was thinking

  • FortesqueX

    #nomorerunningzombies

    • MrX13

      Nothing wrong with having running zombies. Makes it more scarier and intense depends on how its used.

      • Necro

        Yep totally agree X!

  • Blood Boil

    Wow! I am glad to see something totally new and original within the zombie genre! What was the chain link fence budget in this one?

  • Jair H Castillo

    looks pretty bad

  • MrX13

    Looks interesting and very gory! Should be watchable but could be bad too. I’ll give it a shot

  • Hank_Scorpio

    In the immortal words of Greg Nicotero:

    “I fuckin hate fast zombies….”

  • marshally

    I’m getting really tired of the ole “vehicle won’t start when you need it most” scenes, it’s worn out…long time ago.

  • diapers

    So-so trailer, but I regularly subject myself to far worse appearing stuff. WTF was with the super piss poor CGI radiator steam on the front view of the hummer? Anyway, decent gore, super limited setting, seemingly no new concepts, but could be enjoyable anyway. I’ll eat cat food if this gets above 4.5 on imdb, though.

  • zid

    This looks terrible.

  • Joe Archer

    Ooh, little girl and waste of skin. I bet that was hard to think of. Cool story? What is this, 2009? You’re just proving my point in how unintelligent you are. Good going, baby.

  • blackie_chan

    The trailer was shockingly pretty good. Better than my expectations.

  • Joe Archer

    Wow, little girl and waste of skin? Ooh, that cut so deep. Did it take you a while to come up with that or did you need help? Cool story? What is this 2009? Maybe you shouldn’t take everything strangers on the internet say so personally, huh? You’re only proving my point on your intelligence, baby sweetie.

    • Graham Dalrymple

      Wasn’t that hard,given it took me literally a few minutes to reply to your cretinous bullshit lol like I said,my comments were about the film and the website you attacked me for no reason.that make you feel cool? Big tough guy hurling abuse from behind a computer screen?hahahaha your a joke little boy,though il grant you all the crap your feverishly typing from your bedroom at your mummy’s house is amusing lol

  • This film misses the point so much it’s unreal. They make a loose reimagining of Day of the Dead, but assuming that Bub was the only plot device in the original, then completely change his character and turn him into some kind of punk Joker sentient zombie.

  • Munchie Strikes Back

    Total shite.

  • Marla

    Wow. Awful. Well-armed Millennials who look military but are really not for no other reason drive off into a forest (and how often has the trope been used?) with $70,000 Hummers and the starter fails. Talk about your tax dollars at work, people. Oh, cue the zombies, can the blood splatter, and lay out a plot where science, children, and secret underground bunkers all share in some sort of odd commonality of apocalyptic nonsense. Not even a movie to waste bad weed on.

  • Vinicius Evaldt

    I can only imagine what incredible and unforgettable moments this movie is gonna deliver us. Hope the hummer sequence is not the intro of the movie because comparing that with the helicopter scene from the original is kinda mehhhhh Sorry for my english…
