I saw this earlier and as I was watching it, I kept thinking, "This movie is lacking something
". I couldn't put my finger on it until I read this by Burgo:
The first half seemed to be building up to something big, but the movie never really got there. Romero was definitely trying to send a message (actually, several messages) to his audience, but I think he got too caught up in that stuff and didn't concentrate enough on tension, terror, or even plain old fun.
Burgo hit the nail on the head.
I wanted hardcore terror, tension and fun and didn't get it.
Several of the characters were very annoying and some scenes, like the one with the blonde from Texas who takes off in the motorhome at the end, made me shake my head in disbelief.
She acted so nonchalant...like the zombies were no big deal.
And the main guy with the camera...
If he had been with me in a situation like that, I'd have grabbed both cameras and slammed them on the ground as hard as I could.
The f***ing living dead are walking around and you want to film them!?
Oh hell no!
The main chick who narrates the film got on my nerves.
She looked like an Eliza Dushku clone and talked way
By the end of the film, I fantasized that one of the other characters would tie her up and put a piece of duct tape over her mouth.
What a disappointment.
I rate this film 2 out of 4 stars
