A bad remake of Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead (2008) has finally been released on DVD. After several delays and reshoots, the movie went straight to video after an aborted theatrical release. After the long wait of seeing this movie, I was very disappointed. I was expecting a more faithful remake with plenty of Ving Rhames playing himself. What I got was a retread of 28 days Later and bad acting and directing. If you're really into zombie movies then you'll like this one but if you're a George A. Romero fan then you might want to pass on this one. Ving Rhames role was cool but I expected a lot more from the rest of the cast.  The movie was filmed in Bulgaria and in my opinion it should have stayed there.

Mena Suarvi has found her calling in horror films.  She should reboot her career by just appearing in them.  Nick Cannon was okay in his part, he tried too hard to be cool in his role and the dialog he spouted is painful to hear.  The zombies were lame.  I do not like running zombies.  They reminded me of a bunch of meth addicts running around trying to buy mountain dew at three in the morning. I didn't care for it because it could have been a real good movie like the Dawn of the Dead remake.  But what do you expect from the filmmakers behind Halloween H20?

What did you think of this review?

Look out; here comes the zombie spider man.       I could go on forever my friends, but you'd get pretty mad if I just had these stupid spider man references. But I can't help myself, when …

About this movie


The 2008 remake of Day of the Dead.  The film was in post production for several months due to massive reshoots.  Due to the delay the movie went straight-to-video.
