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.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS BUY OR RENT THE ORIGINAL, THAT IS A GREAT ZOMBIE MOVIE.

Let me just say right up front I went into watching this movie expecting to hate it after reading all the other bad reviews around the net. I'm a loyal & avid fan of the original & love all of Romero's other "Dead" work (the original "Dawn" probably being my favorite). To my utter shock this movie actually wasn't that bad. Granted this movie was definately not without it's faults, but at least a rental is definately warranted. Much like the case of the "Dawn" remake, had they just called this something else I think this would've gone over alot better. The movie only loosely has anything at all to do with the original & even than you don't see it until the very end of the movie. I'm not gonna go into plot really as not to spoil anything for you,

Now for some of the things that bothered me about the movie:

A) The "outbreak" comes from a virus that people catch like a cold.
B) This movie unlike the original takes place at the beginning of the outbreak, seems to only last about a day, & seems to only effect this one small Colorado town.
C) Zombies crawling on ceilings is a little ridiculous
D) The cover of the film shows a zombie vomiting, no where in the film does this happen. It's a stupid cover for a film that people are already expecting to hate; why not dress it up a little & spark some interest
E) I hated the way the zombies change, one second they're perfectly normal & normal looking, the next they're blistery, open soared & rotten looking
F) I hated the amature hour CGI used for alot of the head shots, it reminded me alot of "Wild Zero". While that movie was great, their film was meant to be silly.
G) It was really stupid that zombies hide their victims, A) Why do zombies care who finds them? B)Why didn't these corpses zombify?

Not my cup of soup, but my son just loves his horror films, and Day of the Dead evidently was a winner in his book. Surfing through the reviews, a lot of people gave this a thumbs down, saying it was a poor quality remake. For some, that may be. But others, my son included, pictured it as not a remake but just another in the long line of "nobody important" horror movies. It stood on it's own with it's zombie kills.

Mena Suvari is one of the cutest zombie killing machines I've ever seen. LIke Ripley from the 'Alien' franchise but a little more warm and cuddly version. This is not on the level of it's predecessor, the original George Romero film of the same title, but I found it quite enjoyable. First, let me say that I'm an avid fan of the George Romero zombie films. I saw the first one at a drive-in theater when I was a teen. If not for Mr. Romero, there would be no flesh-eating zombie genre... no 'Walking Dead' books or television series... makes me shudder to think about it. Should George Romero be deified? ...Probably.
But this is also a good thrilling movie. If you're a fan of lots of action, it's pretty much non-stop after the first twenty-five minutes. Good special effects. Fast moving zombies. One even races across the ceiling tiles to snatch his prey! This isn't decaying corpses rising from graves, but a virus created by some military scientists who eventually fall victim to their own folly.
If you're a George Romero purist, then you'll probably turn your nose up at this one, but if you've somehow acclimated yourself to the fast moving variety of zombie as I have, then you should enjoy this film.
