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 several exclusive shots from the Hèctor Hernández Vicens-directed film that show Schaech before and after his zombie infection. The makeup looks ridiculously cool.
Earlier this week, Saban Films dated Day of the Dead: Bloodline for 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.
