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.

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.

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.

When I watched this movie, I was already forewarned how bad others think this movie is from the trailer was released until the time I watched it.

The movie tries so much as to re-vision the original Day of The Dead and incorporate the added thrills of 28 Days Later and the Dawn of The Dead remake. It would've been an okay movie if not for the gimics they put in to try add the scariness factor of the movie, instead of being scary it ended up weird.

In my opinion, it's not as bad as many zombie movies out there. Though, I prefer not to categorize this movie as a zombie flick, since it's more like a viral frenzy thing like that of 28 days and 28 weeks later. I must say that this movie is far better than what Uwe Boll could come up with, and the likes of Day of The Dead 2 and Return of The Living Dead 4 & 5.

It would've been a decent film if not for the wall crawling bit. Probably these were unused shots from Spiderman and Aliens films (those scenes would be great if they made a marvel zombies film on spiderman). It still boggles me how a legless zombie could leap so high.

The CGI of the movie was poorly done and the movie could be better without it. With proper angles and suggestive measures the scenes will be a lot better without involving the CGI bit.

The last 5 seconds of the movie is so corny kind of 70s TV horror shows that the filmakers try very hard for one last scare. It's so obvious and really degrades the movie.

The DVD covers should be replaced by the first poster released early 2007 though it's very clearly seen that the design was a rip off from Land of the Dead, it's still better than what is now being sold to the public. Honestly, the cover depicts on how the critics would rate this film and how many customers might feel after watching it.

If they only stuck with George Romero's formula it would've been an okay film.

Day of the Dead '08 Re-make
Steve (Friday 13th 2, House) Miner... Hummm let me see. It might be bad or good but I´ll buy it anyway. I live in São Paulo (Brazil) and if I wait for rent this movie here it will take too long and perhaps I would never will, so, I will buy it.
