Critics reviews

Romero wanted to show how ugly the world really was and who was really suffering… His final film was savagely received and that may have contributed to a near-10-year period of inactivity before his death last month. This is a tragedy because Survival of the Dead, a deeply weird but singularly Romero-esque Western, is one of the most searing chapters in the book on tribalism and the search for happiness he’d been writing with every film he made during his career.

A patchwork quilt of genre fabrics (film noir in the opening scenes, Western for most of the rest, with a bit of Gothic romance mixed in) and classical influences (Walsh in the 1940s, late Dwan, The Thing from Another World and especially Anthony Mann in the 1950s), and if it’s a minor film, it’s one full of major ideas—and if it lacks overt ambitions, it more than makes up for it with unforced intelligence.
