I honestly enjoyed this. Although a lil short and cheap on the plot, this looks like something that might turn out surprisingly good. The outdoors setting reminds me of Dawn's chopper trip, when you see all those rednecks "hunting" zombies in the fields. On the other hand, he went back to some of Day and Land's ideas, among which a zombie can still evolve, albeit slowly, and learn -- damn I miss Bob... -- when one man says "we got to get them to hunt something other than us", which makes it interesting.
As for the production values and overall feel, what did you expect, precisely? This is guerilla filmmaking like George did back in the NOTLD days -- whatever gets the the job done -- and done independently. Besides that, the system doesn't work as it did in the past, he produced almost all of his films independently, then finding a distributor, and hunting the financial backers. Things don't work this way no more and this is why we probably won't ever see another Romero movie looking as good and gritty at the same time, yet totally independently, as his first ones.
But at least he is still going at it, and still fighting, in a way, the Hollywood Machine, doing things his way, and we should all be thankful for this or otherwise there wouldn't be a DTV market, where many of us -- let's be honest here -- discovered some GREAT and SURPRISINGLY GOOD movies, that were produced outside of Hollywood and were so much more fun than what's been the norm nowadays in movie theathers. But this is just my two cents.
