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.
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.
The styles are too jarring. You go from still images and can't quite make out what's going on....then you go to fully animated....to sock puppets....to weird and bad CG. If it was all actual animation it may have worked. But too much of it was still images and it just fell very flat. Avoid this like the plague.
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.

Had they stuck to one or two, or even five or six animation styles this could have been great. Or even broken the styles down by chapter like Animatrix did. Read morePublished on August 13, 2011 by Avernaith
