Seems like this flick has been a loooong time coming, but if you're one of the charitable gorehounds who still can't wait for the Day of the Dead re-do, despite the fact that it's produced by the folks responsible for Creepshow 3 and Day of the Dead 2: Contagium (don't ask), then here's some good news. According to UHM.com, the flick will be arriving on DVD come April 8. Check out the classy cover.

And for those who've forgotten all about this thing, I can tell you that it was directed by Steve Miner (Friday the 13th Part 2) and written by Jeffrey Reddick (Final Destination). Among the cast members are Ving Rhames, Mena Suvari, Christa Campbell, Nick Cannon, and the multi-chinned character actor Ian McNeice. To say George Romero had nothing to do with this remake is like saying Gary Coleman had nothing to do with the French Revolution.

Early word on the remake has NOT been good, and the producers' collective track record is exhaustingly terrible, but I'll admit that I've been curious about this one for a while. (Sue me, I like some of Steve Miner's movies.)
