diamond dead
i'm not sure exactly what this is, i dont' have enough time to fully investigate this but i wanted to share this breaking zombie-news with you all. 
it looks like romero's next film, the diamond dead, is a go, and is allready in pre-production.  george's official webpage could apparently be stillborn, it hasn't changed or developed much since it was put up months ago.  but there is an official diamond dead webpage, which looks to be pretty cool.  again, i'm going to fully investigate later, but it appears you can sign up and be "behind the scenes" through the whole process, from script chunks and rewrites, to the effects being used, even to some of the production email.  i'm going to be sure to sign up, it could be a bust but has the potential to be very interesting.
and of course, just the excitement that george is back at it is big over here, i've been waiting for this since i've been old enough to see the dead movies.
as the man says, stay scared!

update:  upon further review at hompage of the dead, it appears that "diamond dead" is a completely seperate project, but that the fourth in the "night/dawn/day" series has also been greenlighted, with a rumored budget of $15 mil (compared to what, $15 and some pocket change for the first one).  the working title is "land of the dead".  i'll sort all this out eventually, when i have time to really sort through that webpage, but apparently he's doing two seperate films.  either way, after the remake of "dawn" was so huge, it'd be great to see what romero can do with an actual budget backing that morbidly creative brain of his. 


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
