This zombie flick was so pointless. Horrendous performances, soundtrack, direction and screenplay. It was like watching a video game and rock video rolled into one. From the very beginning it was not engaging and the characters were unlikable. Ving Rhames was not given a lengthy role and Mena Suvari doesn't look tough in her character. The rest of the cast was forgettable. Dawn of the Dead is way better than this horror flick. Day of the Dead failed to deliver in all aspects.

"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...
