The remake arrives in theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on January 5, 2018.
Director Hèctor Hernández Vicens unleashes “a bold new reimagining” of the classic George A. Romero zombie film with Day of the Dead: Bloodline, starring Johnathon Schaech as Max, a sort of new version of Romero’s Bub. But before Max becomes a zombie, he’s a human being who’s just as nasty as an undead ghoul.
Meet the pre-zombie Max below, in this new clip from Rue Morgue.
In the reimagining, “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.”
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.
