Dawn of the Dead

Comes out today. Remake of a classic horror flick. For those of you that are down with the genre, check it out; the previews don't look half bad.

I 'm all excited! I admit I'm not too keen on the whole fast zombie thing and in the preveiws the dead are lookin a bit too quick. The eery shuffling and moaning is what makes them the creepiest...in my opinion.

Werd. DAWN OF THE DEAD RAWKED! It even had a few humorous parts to it, which is an added bonus.

You can compare Dawn to 28 days later,but Dawn is so much better in the fact that the Romero Zombie Franchise has been around longer.The original has alot of fans, and the creator of the original Dawn is what brought quality zombie movies to the USA in the first place.Night of the living dead spawned Dawn of the Dead,then Day of the Dead,then rephased in the 80s with Return of the living Dead,Return pt2,return pt 3,and the upcoming return of the living dead 4,and 5.One of which,will be named "Return of the Living Dead: Rave from the Grave". The 80s retelling of the dead series didint have romero directly involved,but it was based on the series,and I believe the writers had to ask romero for the right to make the movies,also.So,this compared to 28 days later,makes it look like nothing more than a rip off of an idea already thought of,and brought respectfully to the screen years before it came out.
With that said,Dawn of the Dead was an excellent movie,beautiful retelling of the original,with great SFX,and makeup.Cool Cameos by some of the original Cast,and tom Savini,the makeup artist who worked on the original Dawn. good Character Establishment,cool dialouge,funny scenes.It had it all,plus the somewhat shock scene. I dont want to spoil it. I thought it would have been cool to incorporate an explanation ,even though its cool without it. I would definately see this movie more times on the big screen. Watching the movie,was actually a funny story. Me,and my friends all decided to go to the midnight showing of Dawn,on the day it came out.We figured ,Well,its late,maybe the crowd will be small.But,we were wrong,I keep forgetting humans all think alike,if we have a "great Idea" chances are,so does everyone else.So, we went tothe midnight showing,and it was packed like fuck.The dude at the box office said there were 46 seats left,but unfortunately all those seats were spread out in various rows,because of idiot people,and thier not being able to grasp the idea of filling in seat gaps.So,we stood in the stairs,and the usher said we couldent stay there,it would be a fire hazard.We were like "Then get us some bloody seats!" anyway,we didint see the movie that day. I saw it saturday night,which doesent really make me any less of a human being. :]

its gotten to the point where i rate the horror movies i go see by how many times i roll my eyes while watching. y'know too many eye rolls equals bad etc etc...

well i am happy to say my eyes didnt roll all THAT much during this one. maybe once or twice. that might just have been from a clunky bit of acting or something that causes an unintentional giggle at the movies expense.

but there was good stuff here. the opening scenes were well done. gripping. some off kilter camera angles and such to make it a wee bit more disorienting. good opening credits with the johnny cash song played over them. nice. speaking of music....i do wish they had used a little less during some scenes. i think quiet makes horror more intense. and that awesome lounge singer-like rendition of "down with the sickness", or whatever the name of that song is. that cracked me up! it was nice to laugh along WITH the movie at some points.

i liked the fast moving zombies. i think RUNNING for your life from something as viscious as they were is quite a bit more terrifying than WALKING at a leisurely pace from shuffling zombies. am i wrong?

the washed out look of the film looked rather 70's-ish as well. liked that too.

i enjoyed the way it ended. in other words...stay for the credits!! all that jerky (and no music!) hand held camera stuff was effective.

what more can i say? this one surprised me. didnt expect to like it that much at all.
