Thanks to Bloody-Disgusting, we now have three brand new images from the upcoming remake of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead, entitled Day of the Dead: Bloodline, which 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.
As you can see in the gallery below, one of the new images shows a rotten, stitched-up corpse rising up from an autopsy table, while we also have a look at a zombie with a very gaunt, skull-like appearance, and two human characters. Nothing here is terribly revealing, but it’s still nice to get another glimpse of the pic as many are curious to see how it’ll stack up to the film it’s remaking.

That being said, as much as I love seeing how George Romero’s work continues to have an impact on the horror genre all these decades later, I can’t help but want a more appropriate interpretation of his movies. Bloodline just sounds like it’s going down the path of the first Day of the Dead remake and whatever Day of the Dead 2: Contagion was supposed to be.
You’d think by now they’d get the idea to produce a film based on Romero’s original script for Day of the Dead, which was trimmed for budgetary reasons. But who knows, maybe they’ll create something worth seeing here? After all, stranger things have happened in the horror genre, and something tells me this won’t be the last film to use Romero’s 1985 classic as its basis.
Day of the Dead: Bloodline is set to hit theaters, VOD and Digital HD on January 5, 2018 and stars Sophie Skelton, Johnathon Schaech, Marcus Vanco, Jeff Gum, Lorina Kamburova, Nick Loeb, Rachel O’Meara, Debbie Sherman, Luke Cousins, Nathan Cooper, Lillian Blankenship and Cristina Serafini.
