I'm here to focus on the Blu-Ray 3D.
Right off the bat, I was skeptical of how this would turn out - this isn't Sony, Warner Bros, Universal or Disney releasing this.. it's "Millenium Entertainment" (and from what I can tell, their first 3D title). Still, I wanted to give it a chance (and went in with expectations that it wouldn't be as good as those other studio releases, to avoid disappointment)
Next problem - this was a 2D title - it was filmed in 2D and converted to 3D. Even the big studios can't perfect this, but they at least make it somewhat watchable (most of the time...), so again I went in expecting that.
[NOTE: While the cover shows a red and blue "3D" logo - this is a Blu-Ray 3D, which requires a 3DTV and 3D Blu-Ray player. It will not play in 3D using the red/blue glasses.]
I really wanted to like this, but from the moment the logos appeared before the film, I knew I was in for trouble.Read more ›
My ratings are based mainly on the QUALITY OF THE 3D, not the video content.
There are 4 out of screen effects that extend about 10% of the way, from the screen to the viewer. 3 effects made it to 25%, 4 at 30%, 1 at 45% and 1 around 50%. The effects consist of glass breaking 3 times, flakes floating once and the remaining 9 are blood spattering. THE EFFECTS ARE VERY CHEESY! Not because they are OOS, but because they are poorly done graphics. The blood splattering is many times, just flat (simplistic or no shading) red blobs flying out.
IN SCREEN / OBSERVATIONS:
Personally, I get a kick out of most of the 2D "Dead" movies so I knew I would be purchasing this even though it's a conversion. I placed my order and hoped for the best BUT this (fake 3D) conversion can only be classified as JUNK.
I consider this movie to be a consumer rip-off and will be very cautious of buying a 3D by "WORLDWIDE FX" ever again. These are the people who also did the 3D work on "Drive Angry", another film with some nasty crosstalk.
The quality of the in screen depth cannot be judged fairly on a (my) active system. Passive system users may find this movie watchable but still very cheesy.
Save your money for something better and skip this one.
ACTIVE GLASSES USERS:
The 3D in this film is horrid to watch with its continuous stream of crosstalk. If you feel you MUST own this 3D OR if you are reading this review after your purchase; don't start using this disc for a coaster just yet. THERE IS SOME HOPE. If you use your TV menu to turn the 3D setting all the way down (called `view point' on a Samsung); the crosstalk can be reduced by over 75%.Read more ›
The 15+ 3D Blu-ray movies we watched have been bright, sharp, and detailed. The 3D dimension is also better than the few we viewed in 3D at the Movie Theater. My personal score of Day of the Dead 3D: Movie **** 3D Quality *** End of Follow-up.
There are alot of negative reviews which are not justified in my opinion. I suspect this is because Day of the Dead is not a serious Zombie Horror like 28 Days. It is more of a horror movie in a style like Tremors. A scary good time movie.
I own just about every Zombie movie made and this is one my favorites.
The main actors, Mena Survari, Ving Rhames, Annalynn McCord and Nick Cannon do a good job in keeping the story interesting and exciting from beginning to the end. The Zombie makeup and CGI scenes are very realistic. There are some gory scenes but they are not repulsvive. There are several quick splattered blood scenes that provides one of the best "In Your Face" 3D effects I have seen.
Warning: Whenever this happens you will be ducking in your seat to avoid getting splattered with blood.
This is not a serious Zombie story nor is it only a comedy. Day of the Dead has just the right mixture of scares and comic relief to make it a funny scary Zombie movie that I enjoy everytime I watch it.
The new 3D version is worth adding to your 3D Collection just for the cool blood splattering 3D scenes alone.
I gave it 4 stars for entertainment value. It is definately not a 1 star "worse" movie unless someone bought the movie expecting a zombie story that is gritty and terrifying.

Its OK. The 3D is kind of choppy in spots but I really didn't notice it too much after the first few minutes. FWIW I have a passive 3D system. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Cory Holland

the 3d picture quality is really bad. half the time the image is really fuzzy and you cant follow it, it gives ne a headach.Published on February 11, 2013 by tommy
This was a honorable movie. It didn't make any sense what the zombies were doing. Zombies are not suppose to have any awareness of who they were. The acting was terrible too.Published on December 25, 2012 by Magehn Newell
