    where I live some guys have just filmed a zombie film. it has diary in the title and is described as blair witch meets zombies. Wonder if they heard about Romero's plan before running out and making it.

    Looks quite well done!
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Hi Guys - just dropping in to say hello. You'll find that The Zombie Diaries was actually written back in 2004 and was filmed summer 2005. We've been editing the movie throughout 2006 and its now ready for release. We only found out about Romero's film about a month ago along with everyone else. The Brits were there first!

    Wow so he's making two Diary of the Deads? I'm a big fan of Romero make no mistake about it. Come and see our movie if you're based in the UK - I think you'll enjoy it.

    Looks damn good. Budget looks pretty decent, too. I'd love to get this once it comes out on DVD/VHS.

    That's right - from Eastenders! Len's a nice chap to work with - very professional actor and a really nice guy.

    There's an initial screening on Sunday 29th October at Letchworth's broadway cinema (broadway-cinema dotcom) - sorry can't post urls yet!

    This isn't an official release as the film has just been completed. It's a preview screening as the film is then being submitted to festivals and taken to Cannes in 2007. I wouldn't therefore expect an official release until mid 2007 realistically.

    We will have more preview screenings though in London shortly. Hope you guys can come along.

    That looks pretty damn kick ass, glad the indie zombie scene is growing here in the UK .

    Just checked out the site, great pics, the effects are especially awesome (the rotted zombie on the grass and the kinda bloated/grey-looking zombie woman are excellent).

    How is the flick getting released here in the UK?

    Indeed, I reckon this'll be joining the DVD collection in the not-too-distant future, and excuse my poor manners for not saying so sooner - welcome to HPOTD (zombie brain smoothies to the left, literal finger buffet to the right).
