Editorial Reviews

Nick Cannon, Mena Suvari and Ving Rhames star in this horror film based on the George A. Romero classic zombie film. A mysterious virus has infected the small town of Leadville, Colorado, and the military is brought in to enforce a quarantine and stop the spread of the disease. As people perish, survivors realize that the virus is creating the walking dead who crave human flesh. Only a small number of people are immune to the virus, and those few survivors must battle to fend off the infected zombies while trying to make it out of town alive.

I honestly don't want to waste my time with this but I too have watched this film. I do enjoy George Romero zombie flicks and after watching this I thought this was a joke. More disappointed actually cause all I got was some rookie director coming up with a 'remake' of one of the master's well known title and jacking it all up. A rookie in the sense of trying to capture the dark, gritty, viciousness of the zombie epidemic as envisioned by Romero in his earlier films. Steve Miner has directed episodes of Dawson's Creek, (which explains some of this film's truly boring dialog and Ken and Barbie type characters) and Smallville (which has effectively turned Superman into a soap opera).What Miner has done here is show us that he can capture all of the plot lines, and zombie behavior previously shown in a dozen zombie flicks, put Mena Suvari (of American Beauty) in the lead and make a horrible horror movie.

While this film might appeal to young folks who don't understand the art as developed by Romero, those who do will undoubtedly turn away from this one after the first half hour. It only takes that long to get an idea of the poor characters. Suvari plays an army Corporal (who carries a gun with no bullets. Why even pull it out?) Ving Rhames has a small part, perhaps wise enough to not stick around. Suvari's character is remarkably calm in the face of danger despite her seemingly bad decision making. The rest of the cast are like refugees from a Dawson's Creek episode. Nick Cannon (Mariah Cary's husband) plays the part of the bad a.., machismo Army Private, and while not giving a particularly good performance, due in part to the horrible script, Cannon does manage to bring some charisma and toughness to the character.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, needless remake March 14, 2008
You knew it was coming. After the surprise success of Zack Snyder's surprisingly good Dawn of the Dead remake, a remake of Day of the Dead didn't seem all that far off from happening. Well, now it's here, and it is indeed an awful, needless remake of George Romero's flawed 1985 classic. The zombie outbreak is caused by a virus that gets passed around like a cold, which is a nice twist in itself, but really doesn't get used to its full potential. The zombies themselves do all kinds of crazy things, from crawling on walls and ceilings to leaping around like Spider-Man. It should be noted that Day of the Dead isn't scary one bit either, and a majority of the gore effects (mainly the CGI head shots) are pretty bad, and the acting (from Ving Rhames, who is not reprising his role from the Dawn of the Dead remake, as well as Mena Suvari and a barely watchable and annoying Nick Cannon) is atrocious. There was potential here, with veteran horror director Steve Miner (Friday the 13th 2 & 3, Halloween H20) and writer Jeffrey Reddick (the Final Destination films) at the helm, but alas, Day of the Dead is an awful zombie remake that is a waste of film more than anything else. Alll in all, if you're a fan of the original or in zombie fans in general, you'll probably check out the Day of the Dead remake regardless, but don't say you weren't warned.

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS A JOKE RIGHT???? April 20, 2008
Are you kiding me???? why they even put the name day of the dead to this awful movie??? everything in this movie is bad very bad. it has nothing to do with the original Day of the dead no characters no plot no nothing, and even if you remove the name day of the dead is probably the worst zombie movie ever, stay away from this movie is really really bad and even disrespectful to the original that is in my opinion the best zombie movie ever.

Holy Crap! Now this is how a zombie flick should be made! I fully expected this movie to be cheap and terrible judging by the less than 2 star rating all combined member reviews reflected. If you are a fan of the Left4dead 1 and 2 video games you should totally love this. This is the only zombie movie that comes close to that. Tons of non-stop action, an arsenal of blazing guns molotov cocktails, top notch blood and gore, and pretty good acting too. Add in some witches, a few boomers, a smoker, Ellis, Coach, Rachelle, Nick, and toss in a jockey or two and you'd have left4dead: The movie. This movie was really, really good and very exciting. I have seen most of the zombie films out there and this rates as one of the very best I have seen. In fact I liked it a lot better than the remake of Dawn of the Dead that came out a few years back. Its way, way better than Romero's recent attempts. Its way, way better than Savini's 'Night of the living dead' remake, and considerably better than 90% of the films made about zombies nowadays. I am totally in a state of surprise that it wasn't greeted by members here with much praise. The zombies were pretty damned scary, they could move fast as hell, and they are the toughest zombies to come along in awhile. The gore was fantastic, realistic and poured on very heavy. I absolutely think this is one of the best 3 zombie films ever made. The ending was a bit abrupt, but I came out of this totally satisfied way beyond what I had expected. Two severed limbs way up!!

Terrible, terrible movie. Very bad acting. Waste of 2 hours of my life. Shouldn't be considered a remake of GAR's Day of The Dead because it's so unspeakably bad.
