Syfy’s Day of the Dead TV present trailer teases a surprisingly wacky and comedic ode to the “Godfather of Zombies” George A. Romero.
Syfy’s Day of the Dead TV present trailer teases a comedic ode to the “Godfather of Zombies” George A. Romero. Night of the Living Dead began all of it in 1968. Dawn of the Dead introduced a satiric spin to the zombie style in 1978. And then Romero wrapped up his authentic zombie trilogy with 1985’s Day of the Dead.
The closing film in Romero’s genre-defining trio of zombie tales had the identical primary premise as the primary two: the zombie apocalypse has damaged out and a small group of uninfected people is holed up in a confined house making an attempt to outlive. Dawn of the Dead of course swapped out the primary film’s remoted farmhouse for a mall, resulting in all kinds of amusing social commentary alongside all of the zombie mayhem. Day of the Dead took issues one other step by trapping its survivors in an underground navy compound the place the actual battle was between scientists wanting to check the zombies and troopers eager to wipe them out.
Day of the Dead like the primary two movies in Romero’s trilogy has already gotten a film remake in addition to some poorly-regarded sequels, and now it’ll get a TV remake from Syfy. According to creator Steven Kostanski the present will tie in with Romero’s authentic film. That could also be true, however the 10-episode sequence’ first trailer truly teases one thing that could not be farther from Romero’s Day of the Dead when it comes to premise and tone. See the clip within the house beneath:
Romero’s Day of the Dead in fact befell nicely into the zombie apocalypse when issues had turn into fully unlivable outdoors the comparatively safe confines of the underground navy facility. The new TV present spin on Romero’s traditional as an alternative takes place through the early levels of the zombie outbreak and contains a group of normal small city characters coping with the sudden onset of the apocalypse. The jokes seem to fly as quick because the gore on this specific zombie variant, which touts itself as an “ode” to Romero, the “Godfather of Zombies.”
Obviously Romero was himself not above including humor to the combination together with his zombie motion pictures. Dawn of the Dead specifically leaned into the satirical, whereas Day of the Dead featured its personal moments of grim comedy amid the insanity. But the comedic sense in Syfy’s Day of the Dead seems to be a lot broader and extra sitcom-like than Romero’s ever was. Indeed, the trailer guarantees one thing extra alongside the traces of Zombieland or The Dead Don’t Die, or the good zombie-filled Community Halloween episode “Epidemiology,“ than something conceived by Romero. It stays to be seen if this “ode” to Romero wins any followers amongst devotees of the late horror film grasp when Day of the Dead hits Syfy in October, 2021.
