I hate Remakes! and because of that i don't think i gave this one a fair chance, i turned it off after the first 5 to 10 minutes and neveer looked back on it. im starting to think that maybe ill give this one another chance...can't be any worse then the remake that was in 3-D right?
The 1990 version is a masterpiece compared to the 2006 3D remake. For a remake, and for what they were trying to achive, I guess 1990's offering was OK, but a lot of things weren't cool:
Generic gunshots, the obvious rubber body parts (when the one zombie was playing with a hand) and the overall feeling that the film was "refined" with many cuts and edits before it's release. Too "sanitary" as Tom Savini described to me in his own words at one Chiller Theatre con'.
However the makeup for the ghouls was quite good-this time the ghouls looked like they died from vastly different causes not related to the zombies (like the one ghoul with the heroin needle in his arm). The clouded eyes was another nice touch too. Not a great movie, but not a bad one either. Oh, and Karl Hardman's original Harry Cooper was a sweetheart compared to the one played by Tom Towles!
