The film is a remake of the 1968 classic finds a group of people once again stranded in a farm house while legions of the undead try to get inside. This remake is terrible and shot by shot the same frame from the 1968 version.

Zack Snyder made a decent fist of the remake of Dawn Of The Dead and as this was scripted by Romero himself, so I thought I'd give it a shot. And seriously wished I hadn't. It's directed like a bad Stephen King TV movie by Savini, and even the usually reliable Tony Todd was hamming it up embarrassingly. All the elements that made the original work were diluted horribly, and the effects were actually more rubbery and unconvincing than the original. All there was to this was a bunch of straight to video actors shouting/whining at each other while doing DIY, with no tension or drama to speak of. But worst of all was the score, which sounded like two inebriated cats running up and down an 80s home organ keyboard. Basically, it's awful.

Not sure why remakes are made if the original was good, great at times. The zombies were slightly better and Barbara being the hero, informing the people that they have "another one for the fire" were the only differences that were noticeable. Night of the Living Dead was decent, not too scary, not too enjoyable either. There are time when a classic film doesn't need to be copied.

Too much of a copy of the original for my liking, but I did like some moments that played out slightly different. Not bad, just unnecessary.

As far as remakes go, this is probably one I can tolerate. Although the political commentary is gone, and they turn the female lead into a Ripley ripoff, I can never get tired of watching zombies.
