Romero's newest Dead film is more lighter than his previous ones in overall tone (there's more obvious comedic elements present). Romero invented what is considered to be the modern zombie and has remained one of the most innovative director's whenever he deals with them. Each one of his Dead films adds another element which furthers his overall saga. Surivival is the last part of Romero's 2nd Dead trilogy (along with Land of & Diary of) and features a character who appears in all three (mentioned in Land & appears briefly in Land).

Survival begins soon after Diary ended and deals with the national Guard unit seen for a brief moment in that film. The National Guardsmen have gone AWOL and attempt to escape the zombie hordes. Upon learning of a possible refuge (Plum Island) they head there and discover the truth that when the dead walk nowhere is ever safe.

Some people have complained about this film's use of cgi, but after listening to the commentary Romero's reason for doing so is 100% valid. Given the restrictions of working with a lower budget the expense (& other problems-time,clean up,etc) of using pratical (non-cgi effects)becomes a major problem. CGI is a tool that more filmmakers should use in this way. Romero doesn't over use it, but does acheive the desired effect he's after. The cgi works in this film (there is also some pratical gore efx).
