George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead won't hit theaters until sometime next year. But you don't need to wait that long to get a glimpse of what the ol' zombie master has in store. Just in time for the holiday weekend, Twitch Film has debuted a new video clip from the zombie king's sixth living dead epic. You can watch the footage in the box below:

On a small island off North America's coast, the dead rise to menace the living. Yet...the islanders can't bring themselves to exterminate their loved ones, despite the growing danger from those the once held dear. A rebel among them hunts down all the zombies he can find, only to be banished from the island for assassinating his neighbors and friends. On the mainland, bent on revenge, he encounters a small band of survivors in search of an oasis on which to build a new life. Barely surviving an attack from a mass of ravenous flesh-eaters. They commandeer a zombie-infested ferry and sail to the island. There, to their horror, they discover that the locals have chained the dead inside their homes, pretending to live 'normal' lives...with bloody consequences. What ensues is a desperate struggle for survival and the answer to a question never posed in Romero's Dead films: Can the living ever live in peace with the dead? George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead will be George Romero's sixth living dead film. The cast features Alan Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen Munroe, Devon Bostick, Richard Fitzpatrick, Stefano Colacitti, and Athena Karkanis. It will be in theaters sometime in 2010.
