Zombies, to quote Joy Division, will tear us apart. Sometimes literally (the better to feast on our warm human flesh), and sometimes more figuratively, as in the trailer for horror master George A. Romero’s latest flick, Survival of the Dead. The film appears to take place on a beautiful island “off the coast of Delaware,” where the residents all speak with campy Irish accents, for some reason. These residents all belong to two families that have undergone an epic schism due to their differing takes on the undead menace: One side wants to re-kill ’em all, the other one seems to be keeping afflicted nephews and nieces in some sort of zombie nursery in hopes of an eventual cure. Sounds like a situation that will end well for all involved.

Watch the Survival of the Dead trailer after the jump, then let us know if it’s whet your appetite.
