Night of the Living Dead 2014 Trailer Lands

Herner Klenthur

If I told you that another remake of Night of the Living Dead was coming what would your reaction be? Would you groan? Or would you go watch the trailer for it immediately ( its below )?

Director and writer, Chad Zuver brings a new look on the story that was made famous by George Romero and John Russo back in 1968.

Chad Zuver is  not new to making horror films if you look up his filmography having directed 3 films in the last 12 months alone. On top of that he has produced 9 films over the last 12 months none of which I have heard of before checking the filmmaker out today.

What is your thoughts on the trailer? Are you up for more hommage to the legendary George Romero’s original work? Or do you wish filmmakers would just move on already?

        This is the FOURTH remake of this movie. That has to be a record beaten only by that movie “Airplane!” was based on.

        3 movies in 12 months? If they all look like this one, I can see why. Is he trying to be the next Ed Wood?

        • Roni Legassie July 27, 2014 at 8:50 pm

          Have you seen any of his films? II am not familiar with him.

        • Herner Klenthur July 27, 2014 at 8:56 pm

          I never heard of him until they tweeted me the trailer.

      5. iBraineater July 27, 2014 at 9:19 pm

        That trailer is bad. And given the horror genre’s track record of the trailer usually being better than the movie itself, this doesn’t bode well. No desire to see this at all.

      6. Aleta White July 27, 2014 at 9:59 pm

        Good Lord people. Let’s just move on. Shall we?

      7. Sean Carney July 27, 2014 at 11:27 pm

        Jesus that trailer needs about a case of viagra, what a waist of my Min and half lol

      8. Brent July 27, 2014 at 11:38 pm

        I seriously thought this looked like it was recorded by young kids with a home video recorder. I think I’ll pass.

      9. Rob Fox July 28, 2014 at 12:14 am

        I don’t think anyone but family and friends have seen his movies judging by the votes on imb.

        The only good version is the original. I am not much a fan of the 90’s remake. Completely pointless…

        • Jim VanBebber July 29, 2014 at 12:42 pm

          The 90s remake was great, Tom Savini directed and it was a perfect homage to the original in my opinion. All the others are utter crap.

      11. Swizz July 28, 2014 at 1:06 pm

        Who would give some no name the rights to do a remake? This looks like it was directed by a student not a professional…..

        • the13thwolfman July 29, 2014 at 1:41 am

          No one owns the rights to the film. It is in public domain so anyone can remake it.

      12. Cabal468 July 28, 2014 at 3:28 pm

        The production looks like it’s on par with Redneck Zombies…I liked Redneck Zombies but I probably won’t watch this movie.

      13. DanofDarkness July 28, 2014 at 3:29 pm

        Not much to add here as it’s already been stated. There’s low-budget, no-budget, and then home-made. This looks home-made, If an adept, quality filmmaker has an idea that works, then I say let it happen. Otherwise, move on. This film looks like a travesty.

      14. Brian Jones July 29, 2014 at 1:40 am

        Ok so let’s break this down a bit, instead of just groaning and saying its crap. The original will always be a fan favorite that’s a given. Very few re-boots/re-makes ever surpass the original. There are some exceptions but for the most part the original will always be the best.

        I have watched the teaser trailer as well, and no I am not a friend of the film maker, and as far as trying to get the feel of the original, the teaser did just that. This trailer is not bad. As a matter of fact it’s 10X better then most “Indie” trailers I have watched, and I watch a ton, it’s my damn job.

        You don’t need to like it. Hell, don’t ever watch it. Regardless of how you feel this film maker took a passion, grabbed a camera and crew and created a film he believed in. That is more then most of us have done in life. It’s very hard to follow a passion and most film makers first films, 4th in this case, don’t hold up the test of time. It’s how they grow and become better at their craft. Keep trolling though, in the end it helps him out.

        Good luck to the film maker, you picked a film that you knew would get a reaction good or bad. Feed off of it and keep creating. If you want a real review, I would be happy to post it.

        • Herner Klenthur July 29, 2014 at 1:54 am

          Great comments. In my view what is making fans leary is that everyone and their brother has taken a stab at the movie because it is in the public domain and most are just capitalizing on the fact that the name alone will draw viewers.

      15. MJ July 29, 2014 at 3:46 am

        It wouldn’t bother me to see another Night of the Living Dead remake…Why not?? Every other movie under the sun is being remade. However the trailer above looks like a fan film. If they’re going to do it, it should be done of serious quality, and not jokey like every other rendishin of Night of the Living Dead that I have seen. With the exception of the 1990 remake by Tom Savini (which totally kicked ass) every other attempt to ressurrect the brand has been beyond terrible.

      16. Mark-Allan July 29, 2014 at 6:11 am

        it doesn’t look that great but it must be better than Russo’s children of the Living Dead.

      17. Antonio LaFrewel July 30, 2014 at 12:57 am

        Okay, I have some serious thoughts here about this. Am I happy that they are remaking Night of the Living Dead? No, because I really don’t care. We have Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. It will always be there and no one is taking that away from us. It isn’t Romero’s fault that it fell into public domain. It happened and now anyone can make the movie. This doesn’t bother me at all. Come on, people! We all love Night of the Living Dead. Why not see what other people can do with it? Is it going to change our opinion on the original? NO! I respect any film maker that has the guts to make movies, especially any that remake this. Why? Because, regardless of how it turns out, everyone will bash it. The movie could have A-List actors, 50 million in a budget and have a Walking Dead feel to it, and people will bash the hell out of it. Because its a REMAKE! People need to get off their high horse and stop thinking everything looks like crap. The trailer isn’t that bad. It didn’t show us anything that will make it good or bad. It was a TEASE!. Does it make me interested in seeing the movie? Yes, because I love Night of the Living Dead. I’ve seen all the remakes and they all sucked, except for the 1990’s version. What makes this one interesting is there is a new story and new characters. Maybe we will see something new here, who knows. None of us have seen the movie yet. But I know I will be buying the DVD. Because I support indie films and will watch ANY version of Night of the Living Dead. Not to bash it and say its trash, but to see what other people can do with it.

        How can anyone say this is a low-budget movie? THERE IS NOTHING SHOWN to even suggest a budget. What do you think people’s reactions were when the original trailer was show for the first time? Nothing, because there was no internet and people weren’t trolls, bashing something they haven’t even seen the finish project for. Why not watch the movie first and then express your opinions.

        I agree with Brian Jones. Do any of you have the guts to put something out there, that you put all your hearts into? Then you read people bashing it left and right. How do you think the director feels? I don’t know Chad Zuver, but I have seen his movie New Blood Rising (thanks to VOD). I LOVED IT, it really is a good movie. So I am a fan of his after seeing that movie. So I am curious to see what he does with Night of the Living Dead. But I’m not going to publicly bash him for something he and his crew worked very hard on. I guarantee you, that half of you have seen a trailer and bashed it. Then you seen the movie and loved it. You can’t judge a movie based on a minute and twenty-five second trailer.

        Everyone needs to stop being typical internet trolls and wait to see the movie. You really don’t know what you’ll get. This could be the second best remake, next to Tom Savini’s version. Who knows? We just have to wait and see.

        As the mother of Chad Zuver, the writer/director of the remake, I have to disagree with many of the comments regarding the remake of Night of the Living Dead. This was one of Chad’s favorite horror movies when he was growing up and he didn’t remake it to make it better, he remade it as an homage. Writing and directing movies is one thing that Chad has always had an interest in and finally, with the help of some great friends, he is able to bring that dream to realization. No the filming/production of Chad’s remake will NOT look like a Hollywood picture because as someone pointed out, he didn’t have a budget or much money whatsoever to make the movie. Everyone, including the actors, did not receive anything for their work. He had make-up artists, camera men, lighting techs, sound techs that worked for nothing. Also, great friends that let him use their homes for filming. Does this mean his movie will be bad?? Not by a long-shot. These people have enough faith in him that they were more than willing to work on this project for no money. Also, this movie will premere at the Maumee Indoor Theater in October. This is the same theater that premered his last movie, New Blood Rising, and sold out in it’s two showings. Chad also wrote and directed New Blood Rising, which was also filmed with little or no money. Sure, they may not have Big Name Actors, great camera angles or fantastic special effects, but he is doing something that he loves and will only become more professional at. So, go ahead, groan, make fun……..someday, if he’s lucky, he might be able to go to Hollywood and create his own style of movie magic.

        Is each remake working on half the budget of the last?

      20. Adidaskorn3000 August 5, 2014 at 10:33 pm

        Let’s all get out our video cameras and film a remake of a beloved film, then proceed to butcher it until it’s no longer recognizable. I’d rather watch Children of the Living Dead on repeat for a decade than watch this trailer again.

        Seriously, why do people become directors or writers any more? If you don’t have an original idea, then maybe it’s not worth making.

      21. DK September 3, 2014 at 7:46 pm

        Is this necessary?
