"Day Of The Dead" by Yojimbo

A collection of survivors and military personnel try to escape from an outbreak of a deadly virus in a small town that turns the inhabitants into flesh eating creatures. My God, there are so many things wrong with this film I don't know where to start. For one, it is NOT a remake of Day Of The Dead. It has so little in common with it, it might as well call itself a remake of 28 Days Later or Resident Evil; in fact the crappy script was like watching a 90 minute videogame cut scene. Mena Suvari (along with the rest of the cast for that matter ) has no presence whatsoever, with only Ving Rhames showing any charisma at all and I felt duped by his name being attached to it because he is hardly in it. Not to mention the fact that the "zombies" can now crawl up walls as well as run around like ...

Not Down with the Sickness

Keep in mind this is the 2008 Romero remake...directed by Steve Miner(Halloween H20, Warlock, House, Friday the 13th Parts 2 and 3) and sadly this movie did not hold up to those movies. This movie seemed very awkward for a "zombie" flick. More disease and people getting sick. More bad things happening because smart people are doing dumb things and making mistakes. This just didn't have the feel of needing to be done. Dawn of the Dead....Good. Land of the Dead...Good. Because both had done different things and went about the zombie aspects kind of differently....the "evolved" a bit. In this movie they were just odd....they were acting very strangely...and walking on the walls and ceilings...which made them more bug like than creature like.

I honestly don't know what to really write bec...

Pointless, But Watchable

It seems that the horror movie remake is now fully integrated into the Hollywood money-making psyche, and although the debate is going to run and run about the merits of such movies - the snobbery of the fans of the originals versus a newer generation who can't see what all the fuss over the so-called 'classics' is about - it doesn't really matter what anybody thinks as they're going to make them anyway. Although 2003's remake (reimagining, reboot, whatever...) of 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' arguably kickstarted the trend, to some degree of critical and commercial success, it was the 2004 version of what some see to be the Holy Grail of horror movies - 'Dawn of the Dead' - that really signalled the arrival of this new wave of remakes. Taking George A.Romero's original idea of having a...

Absolutely Abysmal

This Ďremakeí of Day of the Dead isnít the worst zombie film Iíve ever seen. In fact, itís not ever the worst zombie film with Day of the Dead in the title that Iíve ever seen. No Ė Iím not referring to George Romeroís original of which this film is rather loosely based but the ill-advised 'official' sequel, Day of the Dead 2: Contagium. Back to the film at hand howeverÖ while itís not the worst zombie film Iíve ever come across, this movie is bad.

The original Day of the Dead followed the events of Dawn of the Dead while this remake stands as its separate story. Of course very little about this film bears much resemblance to Romeroís original beyond the title. An illness starts to spread and a military quarantine is set up around the small town of Leadville, Colorado. It soon becomes...

What?!

George A. Romero is seriously a legend in the zombie genre of films. Really, George created zombies and because of him, we have such good films like 28 Days Later and other zombie flicks. The one thing which annoys me though is the fact that there are a lot of bad zombie movies out there which try to copy George in many ways. With this so called remake, Day of The Dead is one of those good try attempts. I have to say that this is not really a remake, the director Steve Miner uses the same title but with everything completely different from the classic. Now, this film was certainly more then what I had expected, as I thought it would turn out to be another House of The Dead except with Boll in the mix. It turned out to be actually ok on my scale, because Friday The 13th Part 2 was also ok....
