Diary of the Dead

Romero! The Living Dead!

As most of you know that have been reading for any length of time, I’m a huge sucker for zombies. Romero is the king of the zombie film, so this is a must-see for me. I’m a little worried about it coming out near Cloverfield, which takes the first-person-Blair-Witch style storytelling to a major motion picture, and it looks like this might be seen as a rip off. In any case, Romero + zombie = The Win.

oh wait. this is romeros movie. there was another british one that came out not long ago with the same zombie+blair witch premise. id provide a link but im at work. zombie chronicles maybe?

Night of the living dead is one of my all time favorite. I love zombie movies. I loved Dawn of the Dead…Even day of the dead was pretty cool. I read the “zombie survival guide” several times. I friggen love zombies.

I wanted to see this movie so bad. I took a bus 2 hours to go see it….

At the end of the film…..I booooed at the screen. It was crap. Horrid horrid crap. It was so bad that I can;t even begin to explain every reason, as it would take all night and require me to relive this disgusting attempt at a movie.

All I can say is…every thing in this movie sucks. Everything…..except the amish guy. If the whole film was about him, maybe it would have been good.

What can even be said of such a bad film, silly idiotic characters acting like morons in ways that boggle the very mind. These characters are ridiculous, there action senseless and stupid. But even worst it is over the top annoying in its pretentious self righteous goobly gook……which gets rammed down your throat at every moment…to the point that I wanted to just yell at them to STFU.

As you can tell I am at the point of anger over how bad this movie was (not to mention the 4 hours of riding the bus)
