Day of the Dead: Bloodline is a partial remake of George A. Romero's Day of the Dead (1985). The film was developed by director Hèctor Hernández Vicens (The Corpse of Anna Fritz). The film stars Johnathon Schaech (Prom Night, 2008) and Sophie Skelton ("Outlander"). In this latest zombie film, survivors are scrambling to stay alive five years after an epidemic. Several military personnel live underground, while a biologist searches for a cure to the virus. In early February, Day of the Dead: Bloodline will be available on both DVD and Blu-ray formats. A look ahead to the film's home entertainment release is available now.

A few early reviews have come in for the film. Michael Gingold, of Rue Morgue, hopes there will be no more re-imaginings, after watching this title: "let this be the last reimagining of the DEAD series." Day of the Dead: Bloodline has few fans at Rue Morgue. Matt Donato, of We Got This Covered, liked the film even less. He mentions the film's poor visuals: "how about digitally abhorrent CGI scars and blood splatters? Horrendous ADR that starts the film with mismatched voices to mouths? Angled camera shots of half-empty rooms..." Other reviews have been equally vilifying. However, there are millions of die-hard zombie fans out there and they may want to add Day of the Dead: Bloodline to their DVD/Blu-ray collections.

Release date: February 6th, 2018 (Blu-ray, DVD).

Director: Hector Hernandez Vicens.

Cast: Sophie Skelton, Johnathon Schaech and Jeff Gum.
