If you've seen Diary of the Dead, you already know that at this point in his career George Romero is losing his touch. Some might say he lost it after Land of the Dead, but Diary is a truly broken film.

However this trailer that premiered over at Bloody Disgusting, for the sixth in Romero's of the Dead series, Survival of the Dead, may inspire some hope. Immediately you'll notice that the zombies look like they were pulled straight out of the original Dawn film, adding a sense of nostalgia to it that has been lost since Land. It looks like Romero may have taken a bit of a comedic approach to this film, which would certainly be a step in the right direction after Diary took itself way too seriously."

Survival is hitting video on demand as well as Amazon and XBox Live April 30th, a full month before its theatrical release on May 28th. Weird marketing choice, but I'll accept it. Check out the trailer below, and sound off on what you think about Romero's series in the comments.

Here's the official plot description:

"Immediately following the events of "Diary of the Dead," "Survival of the Dead," is the 6th film from George A. Romero to look at a world where humans are in the minority and the zombies rule.

Off the coast of Delaware sits the cozy Plum Island where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O'Flynn's, headed by patriarch Patrick O'Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headed by Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept 'alive,' in hopes that a solution will someday be found.

The O'Flynn's, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a cynical band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island, to find that the zombie plague has fully gripped the divided community, and the body count is rising.

As the battle between humans and zombies escalates, the master filmmaker continues to reinvent the modern horror genre with wicked humor and pointed social commentary."
