It isn't even bad in a good way, it's JUST bad.
Joshua D. Myers
So the 3D wasn't good, and the acting was absolutely horrible, just trying to make an xtra buck on a great movie.
R. Caro
This is NOT a Rob Zombie remake of the original Romero movie.

Ingredients for a horrible horror movie remake: horrid acting, terrible dialogue, terrible cinematography, a complete lack of gore, and a complete disrespect for the source material. This remake of 'Night Of The Living Dead' has all of those in spades...plus a ton of really crappy 3-D and oh, Ben isn't black in this one. Ugh. Terrible. Let me start by saying that I love the original and I also really like Tom Savini's 1990 remake, so my opinion may be a bit skewed. But this remake is absolutely horrid.

First off, the acting is the quality of a high school drama class. Everyone in the film is terrible. Even Sid Haig, who is normally great, phones it in. All the characters are unlikeable, especially the "hero" Ben, who is now played by some white emo kid. He's not rough and tough like Duane Jones in the original or world weary like Tony Todd in the 1990 version. White Ben is just there, stumbling through his lines like a confused drama student.

Secondly, the 3-D in the film is pointless and terrible. The film has some decent 3-D shots in the opening graveyard scene but then fails to really do anything with it for the rest of the film. Instead of trying to create depth in the shots, the filmmakers shot the bulk of the film like a regular movie. They make a couple half-hearted attempts, but there is not a single shot that jumps out at you(the slo-mo bullet effect near the end of the film is pathetic). But whatever, I could've dealt with it if it were not for the fact the the 3-D is just bad. With the glasses on, everything is just blurry. And unfortunately, there's no function on the disc that allows you to turn the 3-D off. You get to either watch a blurry film with the glasses off or a blurry film with the glasses on.

If I haven't said this before I'll say it again, I'm a huge fan of George A. Romero's Night Of The Living Dead and his sequels he's done for the past forty years. Thanks to him, we truly know the horrific world of Zombies and the Undead with great detail and know what a frightning place it can be trapped within, be it an old farmhouse, a suburban mall, underground bunker, or anyplace that leaves you open for an attack by the flesheaters of the living. Of course once you create such a popular character in Horror you get copycat rip-off's trying to cash-in on your original creation. Strangely though, most of these types of films have had some varied degrees of success, most notably the Italian Zombi filmakers of the 1980's. Unfortunately though, the one that started it all, 1968's NOTLD, due to a copyright snafu never got that precious right and soon it came clear to all that anyone could either release it, own it, and/or make any version with that plot and title any way they choose.

But first, a little history: back in 1998 Anchor Bay and John A. Russo (one of the men to help create the '68 original with Romero) decided to release a 30th Anniversary version of the classic, but instead of just re-releasing the same old print like every other DVD company, shot and added new footage in with the old, creating a new subplot that not only hurts the original film, but betrays the social commentary that was laid down in the first place. A true misstep and the fans were not pleased.

However when it came to complete remakes, at least someone got it right even before this.

What more can I say; this movie is better than most people think. First of all, horror fans are the harshest critics on the planet. Hands down. When this non-George Romero endorsed "remake" hit the theaters, most fans already had their minds made up. I myself, was skeptical, but found the picture to be an entertaining mix of humor and horror. Solid supporting actors and a tight pace are what keep you engaged, but Sid Haig gives one of his best performances and essentially makes the movie worth while. Without him, the picture would be less memorable.

Truth be told, if this were a 3D zombie movie, other than NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, people would be all over it. Aside from the same opening, this movie ventures into it's own storyline and brings in a wonderful idea as to why all the zombies exist in this small, rural town. Too good a plot point to spoil here, just keep in mind this movie has it's own agenda and is clever enough not to rehash what was already accomplished in Romero's original.

So, here is a film about zombies in 3-D. It might sound a bit strange combination after watching two Robert Rodriguez family-oriented 3-D films, but horror films are not alien to 3-D gimmick. You may remember "House of Wax" starring Vincent Price made more than 50 years ago, so the idea itself is not bad.

As to the new film's 3-D effects, I agree with other reviewers - they are exactly what you expect from these old-fashioned, blue-and-red glasses. It is not directed by James Cameron and you should know that. I only wish that the filmmakers, as Rodriguez wisely did, had shortened the 3-D effect time (with captions telling viewers when to wear or take off the glasses). 80 minutes of watching a film through my red/blue glasses was really killing my eyes.

The updated version has a basically same plot. It's about a group of people trapped in a farmhouse besieged by flesh-eating undeads. This is basic of this genre and this film also sticks to it, but the results lack tension and suspense because of the amount of talk which is too much, and the dearth of gores. Some zombie effects are impressive (like the one crawling in the yard), but not enough to make up the slow tempo and slack pace.

One great thing you can find here is, as you expect, Sid Haig. He is not as good as his delightfully campy turn as Captain Spaulding, but like Vincent Price he shows here that he can single-handedly change a silly monologue into a wonderful magic moment that only horror maestro can do. Listen to him recounting the incredible story of how zombies came to be "alive" and you will almost believe him.
