Zombies. 'Nuff Said.

More news continues to flow from last week's Comic Con. You know what they say. When theres no more room in hell for the makers of crappy zombie films, then the dead will walk the earth under the vision of George Romero and Max Brooks. CBR says:

Shot entirely on subjective camera and security camera footage, "Diary of the Dead" will follow the story of a group of college students experiencing the first night of a zombie breakout. "That's what this one is, it's about a bunch of college kids that were out doing a school project when the shit hits the fan."

When asked what inspired the premise behind "Diary," Romero explained that he makes his movies based on what he sees in today's world. "'Land' is about the Bush Administration basically," Romero said. "And 'Diary' is about YouTube."

As for Brooks, his book, "World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War," is in the process of being adapted into a feature film.

It's comforting to know that there are still some great zombie movies in the works. They'll be like the simple yet always overlooked head shot needed to destroy the rotting, undead corpses of the "Resident Evil" and "House of the Dead" films.
