Genre legend George A Romero may no longer be with us, but the zombie flicks keep on coming, with Day Of The Dead: Bloodline next off the production line on October 15.

Coming courtesy of Spanish director Hector Hernandez Vicens (who has the well-received The Corpse Of Anna Fritz to his name), this new outing stars the likes of Johnathon Schaech and Sophie Skelton.

Here’s a synopsis:

Fear goes viral in this terrifying retelling of George A. Romero’s zombie horror classic. Five years after an epidemic nearly wiped out the world’s population, Dr. Zoe Parker lives in an underground bunker among a small group of military personnel and survivalists, working on a cure while fighting armies of the undead. When a dangerous patient from Zoe’s past infiltrates the bunker, Zoe discovers he just might hold the key to saving humanity… or ending it.
Ramping up the action and bloodshed, and with plenty of nods to the 1985 classic, prepare yourselves for the next bloody chapter in one of horror’s most beloved franchises.

 

A trailer is due shortly, so for now enjoy these photos:
