Survival of the Dead and Black Butte Porter
I read about it at length prior to its release. It was said to be a sort of zombie western. I’m not a fan of westerns so before I even bough the DVD was disappointed. Sergeant Nicotine Crockett (what a name) was a survivor from Diary of the Dead. He was the head of the National Guard unit that robbed the kids. He was also in Land of the Dead where he played a soldier in charge of military vehicles and supplies. He became a zombie in Land of the dead but that didn’t mean Romero couldn’t cast him in the two movies that followed. I think its proof that George plays favorites.
