Diary of the Dead Review
Written by: nricexbox
I was thrilled when I first got wind of Romero doing another zombie film.
His films are iconic for the horror genre and have helped to define zombies in Hollywood. But, when you make a movie every decade since the 60's (excluding the 90's), where...() do you go?
It went from a sudden and subtle uprising to a zombie apocalypse. When the movie was over, I wasn't as
impressed as I thought I would be. The term "Cloverfield with zombies" actually came to mind (granted, the camera work is steadier/more steady).
It has its moment in gore, but really just has a story to tell and is you typical zombie survival movie (must like Automaton Tranfusion actually).
I checked the special features, and Romero does confess that this film, more than anything kind of goes back to the origins of his zombie world, and is more like NOTLD instead of being a sequel or stand-alone original. Still, if
you like zombies. You won't be disappointed.
