Glad to see George A. Romero making zombie movies again!

Diary of the Dead is a rebooting of the Living Dead series.  George A. Romero has decided to reboot the series by updating it for the new generation.  The movie follows a group of college kids and their professor as the try to survive the rising zombie menace and document everything they see and put it on the internet and witness the fall of civilization.  As in all of Romero's zombie flicks, who or what caused the undead epidemic is never made clear.  But I really enjoy the slow moving zombies.  Shot on DV and in Super 35.  If you are fans of zombie movies then you need to grab a copy of Diary of the Dead.
Shoot the dead!

I don't know why people came down so hard on this flick. Maybe it was the same reason I came down on DRAG ME TO HELL with both feet and only gave it 3 stars--it just wasn't what i had hoped it would be.

Being a George Romero fan, of course I was very excited to see “Diary of the Dead”. I didn’t particularly care for his previous film; “Land of the Dead” (Romero’s big budget outing) but hey, even great directors have their bad moments. With a very small budget, Romero’s latest film seem to have captured the documentary style “gimmick” that have plagued other films. I never really cared for this style, I’ve always thought it was a one-hit …

Romero's worst effort in his zombie world
  Romero has been watching too many zombie movies. Yes, I know, that sounds a little weird, the man who practically invented the zombie movie, and who's masterpiece Night of the Living Dead has served as the inspiration for every undead film since is watching too many zombie films? Nonsense you say, crazy says another, what on earth makes me think that? Just look at the Romero of old, from the days of Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead and you'll notice that he doesn't rely on cheap tricks …

While DIARY OF THE DEAD definitely is not cut from the same cloth as Romero's best films it still doesn't deserve the bashing that it has received. It this flick had been made by anyone other than the Zombie King himself then it would have been met with more realistic expectations and audiences would have found that there is much to enjoy here. I found it to be a step above LAND OF THE DEAD, a film I disliked the first 3 times I saw it. Eventually it began to grow on me, but I still prefer …

Everyone claims to have
So much has been said about DIARY OF THE DEAD already that even attempting to write an in depth review of it at this point would be a waste of my time, and probably yours as well. Thus what you have before you are some rambling comments on the film and at least one of the major complaints I've heard about it.       Like everyone else who refers to him or herself as a horror fan, I love Romero's previous work. Although LAND OF THE DEAD is taking its own sweet time to grow on me …
