Romero's dead films are my favorite horror.
Andrew P. Livelsberger
My friends and I watched this as part of a horror movie marathon and it was the only movie we could not finish because it was totally unwatchable.
Dan Litzinger
Considering that the movie itself is public domain, I feel ripped off for what I paid for this jumbled mess.

Whenever someone "reimagines" a classic movie, I'm always a little skeptical. No one wants their favorite movie to get screwed up. So it was with some trepidation that I watched this film. But I was pleasantly surprised with the result. The heart and soul remained intact while the new angle made it fresh and energized.

The first few minutes are somewhat dizzying as a multitude of various animation styles whiz past you. After a short while, things settle down as the changes in the animation isn't so fast and furious, and the viewer is given more time to enjoy each style (and enjoy I did!). It was great fun to watch all of the different animation styles employed in this film. This is such a creative project, my mind was blown with how the artists used their styles to emphasize certain finer points of the film. Some of my favorites scenes were the sock puppets, the claymation, the Edvard Munch type of artwork, and other styles that are so crazy I don't know how to even describe them.

I was truly fascinated by this whole movie. I think that it is a labor of love and and a sincere tribute to the original "Night of the Living Dead". I would recommend this film to anyone who loves George Romero, zombie films, animation, or who would like to see a truly creative piece of work. All of the artists who contributed to this project should be commended and congratulated on this amazing achievement.

This is a GREAT take on this film. It is PURE art. So if you dont like art then you will not like this aspect of this film. It is the original sound and screenplay of the movie with 150 International Artists demonstrating their personal take on their favorite scene. This is a True Horror Fan Collector Item. FOR SURE! I am a Horror Collector and this is definitely something you need to own if you like ART and Night Of the Living Dead. Its ART People. ART!

With the exceptions of the Romero-approved Millennium and Dimension Films editions, NOTLD-Reanimated is certainly the best thing to happen to this classic on DVD (stay away from the colorized, 30th anniversary, 3D and Blu-ray editions). It doesn't reimagine the film, but rather "resurrects" the film aesthetically. With each new clip, we get to explore the film in another medium: comics, drawing, computer-generated imagery, puppets, video games and altered video. The DVD provides just the right context to enjoy it all, complete with audio commentaries, featurettes and a perfectly schlocky (and I mean that as a compliment) introduction by a vampiric "Count Gore de Vol," who prefaces NOTLD-Reanimated while parading around a makeshift goofy-spook soundstage circa 1970. To me, it all strikes the right tone -- no pretense, just fun and appreciation of this landmark horror film.

However, this exquisite corpse never quite equals the sum of its parts. Many of the visual styles are too often repeated, yet none of the segments is really allowed to come to fruition. As a result, frustration, and a pressing desire to switch to the original film, can set in pretty quickly on a casual viewer. Hopefully, this just the start of a larger "body" of work, and the team at Wild Eye should know that this reviewer would eagerly look forward to another "reanimated" jam session.

When I came across this version of Romero's classic, I was at once intrigued and skeptical (and I attribute my skepicism to the anniversary edition which included the "new footage" including the fire-and-brimstone preacher (as described by one reviewer). But my aforementioned intrigue won, and I ordered this. I guess I was expecting something different, perhaps an "anime-style" version. The opening scene in which Barbara and Johnny are sitting in the vehicle talking initially made me say to myself, "Oh, geez..." but the pace picked up, somewhat. This isn't really my proverbial cup of tea, but I do give credit for the vision. The live-action sequences were interesting, but the still panels reminded me of the narrated animation version of "The Watchmen," which I found very distracting.

Word of advice (and kudos to the production company and the "Count" for this suggestion): If you have never seen the original "Night of the Living Dead," do not let this "reanimated" version be your first experience. Watch the original first; otherwise, you may be distracted and decide to bypass this classic. May I recommend the Millenium edition? Once you've seen the original classic, your appreciation of "Night of the Living Dead - Reanimated" will most likely be much greater.

My dad and I are huge fans of the Night of the Living Dead movies. I got this because I thought it would be a great flick for one of our father/daughter movie nights. I wouldn't say that this version is one of my favorites. It's definitely new and different but I couldn't really get into it.

I rented the video thinking it'd be different and good. Wheat I got was a crappy STORYBOARD with crap for 'animation'.
