What a disapointment on so many levels. I really liked diary of the dead so I bought the dvd for my collection. The characters were completely unbelievable. The people of plum island seemed like they were from the 1800's all with heavy irish accents, and antique rifles. Romero tried to play this movie off as campy, like the evil dead movies but failed. Not scary, not funny, and completely

Rick3dnyc your obviously not a zombie fan or a Romero fan so please, do the world a favor and keep your trap shut. I own every single movie directed by Romero and every american and foreign zombie movie ever produced. Survival wasnt a masterpeice but Ied spend the $15 for it at walmart if I hadnt already gotten my copy free ;)

You can pay preview it at home for about $7. I watched is a few times over the weekend and thought it was pretty good. Some very funny lines and enough gore to enjoy. Not his best, but worth the rental.

Steeped in fan-pleasing gore but woefully thin on ideas, originality (beyond new zombie-offing methods) or directorial flair. Full Review

There are some memorable images, including the sight of a beautiful, horse-riding ''dead head.'' But for much of the movie, Van Sprang's zombie fatigue seems to be an echo of Romero's own. Full Review
James Berardinelli
There's little here that's new or interesting; the movie is for hard-core Romero devotees only. Full Review

The New York Times
Placidly photographed and lacking in urgency, "Survival" shows us the living flailing at fate and the dead just flailing. Full Review
