Are you ready to get down with the sickness? Movie logic dictates that you shouldn’t remake a classic, but Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead defies that logic and comes up a winner. You could argue that George A. Romero’s 1978 original was sacred ground for horror buffs, but it was a low-budget classic, and Snyder’s action-packed upgrade benefits from the same manic pacing… More >>

  2. THIS MOVIE COULD”VE BEEN DECENT EXCEPT THAT IT DIDN’T HAVE A SINGLE CHARACTER FROM FINAL FANTASY VII AND THE ZOMBIES WERE RUNNING AROUND. THAT JUST PUSHES THE ENVELOPE OF BELIEVABILITY TO DAMN FAR DAMMIT!!!!! SURE, I CAN EXCEPT THAT THE DEAD HAVE RISEN AND THAT THEY ARE FUNCTIONAL AND CAN MOVE AROUND AND WANNA EAT PEOPLE AND DON’T EAT EACH OTHER FOR SOME REASON. UTTERLY LIFELESS, ENERGY-LESS NON-FUNCTIONING CORPSES WALKING AROUND THE CITY STREETS IS FINE, BUT TO HAVE THEM RUNNING AROUND THE STREETS? MADNESS!!!!!!! BECAUSE YOU SEE, DEAD TISSUES STIFFENS UP WHEN IT DIES, SO THEIR COMPLETELY NON-FUNCTIONAL, LIFELESS AND THUS NON-MOVING MUSCLES WOULDN’T BE ABLE MOVE THEM QUICKLY CAUSE THEY ARE TOO STIFF. IT IS SIMPLY WRONG TO HAVE ZOMBIES RUN, AND THIS IS NOT SIMPLY AN AESTHETIC OPINION ON MY PART, BUT A AXIOMATIC PILLAR OF THE GENRE, WHICH I AM MORE THAN PREPARED TO DECLARE AS I AM THE OWNER AND PROPRIETOR OF SAID GENRE.

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. The blood. The gore. The violence. No, this is not a review for ‘The Passion of the Christ.’ Although some might see this film as the coming of the rapture, it’s actually just a horror film with some fairly interesting characters and a terrible ending (not sure you could even call it an ending)! Hey! Maybe it IS a review of ‘The Passion.’ But I digress 2000 years…

    An Emergency Room nurse goes home one evening to her husband where they make mad, passionate love (I mean come on! What would a horror film be without a little nookie?). When they awake the following morning from their post-coital stupor, the husband finds the neighbor child wheezing strangely in their bedroom doorway. She quickly takes a bite out of the husband then tries for our nurse heroine. The husband quickly joins the undead and goes after his wife now, too. Once our nurse escapes and get’s outside, she discovers that the world has gone crazy; houses are on fire, zombies run (and I mean they RUN!) down the streets, cars are toppled over. Hell has arrived on Earth.

    Our nurse escapes to a local shopping mall with a band of other ‘normal’ humans where they barricade themselves inside. The interactions of the characters inside are what kept the movie going here, not the occasional foray into the outer world where the zombies have begun to congregate. Say, why ARE they congregating outside the mall? This is never truly explained. Plot hole? Definitely.

    Needless to say, some of our mall human survivors don’t make it and some do. They make a dash for the marina in an attempt to get aboard a ship and sail to a deserted island. Do they make it? You’ll have to watch it and see.

    The ending: As we left the theater, my teenage daughter turned to me and said, “That ending sucked! It was too Titanicy.” I tend to agree with her observation.

    C+ rating.

  4. I can see the excitement, people get out of a gorefest but this is too much. All taboos have been broken there is nothing left. Johnny Cash should come back and torment the makers of this film for misusing one of Cash’s songs. He would never have approved of this film. Letting a newborn baby be come a zombie is beyond bad taste. Johnny’s horsemen should trample the makers of this film into grimy puddles of gore.

  5. Can’t use item because I didn’t realize that HD DVD’s were different than other DVD’s. You need a special DVD player or drive on computer. I wish it would have informed me that a special player was needed for this DVD. So for all persons not realizing this, here is your warning don’t buy unless you have the correct DVD player.
