The quickfire sequel, directed by Taurus president and CEO Jim Dudelson and vice president of production Ana Clavell, has taken advantage of the tangled rights situation of the original three films and rushed out a quick unofficial 'official' sequel to the film.
News of the film's existence broke only last week, and has taken everyone by surprise. Even George Romero was unaware of the project until he heard through regular visitors to his Diamonddead website.
The trailer looks like it could be promising (gliding camera work, that iconic Day music, and a good looking zombie), although really it's too soon to say if this is a worthy addition to the Dead family, or just a cheap-buck quick-fix rip-off.
