It's time to bring George A. Romero's unique brand of entertainment home this May. Diary of the Dead is coming to DVD on May 20. We have no word on special features quite yet, but this disc will be priced at $24.95. The film stars Joshua Close, Scott Wentworth and Michelle Morgan.
Fiction turns into reality for a group of film students who set out to shoot a low-budget horror flick in the woods of Pennsylvania. When the dead come to life before their eyes, director Jason Creed decides to capture these startling events with his camera, even as members of his cast and crew become prey to the increasing army of walking corpses that surround them. Mainstream media coverage of this plague is manipulated and unreliable, so the only way to get the real story out to the public is by posting raw footage on the Internet. As the group make their way back home in an old Winnebago, they are met with death at every turn, and the realization sets in that the only remaining audience for Jason's film may be the same undead subjects he is risking his life to document.
