I'm with Ash with this one.  I'm not understanding the hate/disappointment.  I went into it expecting a low budget modern zombie film.  I got out of it exactly what I expected. 

I love Romero.  I have a pet named after the man.  NOTLD and Dawn are the two best zombie films ever crafted, in my opinion.  That being said, I can separate the old Romero from the new.  This new Romero is more interested in testing the waters of CGI and making a quick buck.  As long as it's a fun little film, I'm in.

There's a Romero's dept. store in Dead Rising too  Wink

One thing that was addressed in this film that wasn't in the other films,  was whether or not blood can transmit the disease to others  (the scene where the one guy was swimming and bit the finger off of a zombie to avoid his grasp.)  For years it was only confined to the bite. That was a nice touch.

While I myself can also separate new from old in Romero's case, my dislike comes from the state of horror films in general. Seems there's not much to like these days.

Well, NOTLD and Dawn are low-budget zombie films, and as you said they are amazing.

I'll admit I expect a lot out of zombie films. The bar has been set pretty high, no matter the budget. Survival seems like Romero coasting. I don't just consider the film poor for a Romero film, I consider it poor for a cheap zombie movie. Just so very half-hearted.

So it was not a great movie, no biggie. And I'm not going to begrudge Romero putting money in his pocket coasting on his reputation. If anybody deserves more money than has been thrown his way, it's Romero. But Survival is just not very good. I guess I enjoyed it for what it was, but it's just so purely non-essential.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
