remake of the 1968 film. A woman, Barbara and her brother, John go to visit
their mother's grave. While their they are attacked by zombies. Running just a
few hundred yards from the cemetery Barbara comes upon a farm house. Ben meets
up with Barbara at the farm house, and together they fight to kill the
zombies. Soon more survivors show up, and its a battle against the zombies.
Review: I love the
opening scene of this film. Having only seen the first 10 minutes of the
original, I already noticed that it follows the original pretty well. The
chase scene is well paced, and well thought out. I noticed that, like usual, I
didn't have to think in my head, or yell at the TV, for Barbara to run this
way or that way, she did it on her own. That was a nice change for me.
It was very weird to see Tony Todd playing a role in this film, I'm just so
used to him playing Candyman.
Very good fight and chase
scenes, as well as very kick ass killing scenes. Did I mention that the
zombie's are kick ass looking? Some are just falling to pieces, and bloody as
Development: There isn't
really too much development of the characters other then the beginning with
Barbara and her brother talking in the car. Its obvious that the children most
likely didn't get along with their mother, or at least John didn't. Ben
doesn't talk to much about himself either, but he does seem to know a lot of
what it happening with the zombies, because he's come in from town.
The acting is almost too
good for a horror movie. I wouldn't change it one bit.
I really enjoyed this
film, I thought almost everything was perfect. I just wanted to see more
zombies, and more killing of the zombies. Watching this film reminds me of
playing the Resident Evil games, which I'm a huge fan of. If you like zombie
movies at all, or just like horror movies, you've got to see this movie. I
plan on watching the original now that I've seen this version.
