View Full Version : Dawn Of The Dead Remake

As much as I love the first one, this one doesn't look like it'll be that bad. I mean, granted, it'll in no way hold candle to the original, but if you look at it as a zombie movie and not a rehash, it definatly grabs your interest.

The trailer has Tom Savini in it, too.

Looks good. Ving Rhames is in it, which is awesome. I like that its going to take place in the present, so it won't have any crappy retro bullshit.

Its crazy how they went for the chase after you style zombie instead of the mindless gimplegged paw on the window drool on your shoulder zombie. I didn't enjoy the re-make of Texas Chainsaw as much as I thought I would but I'll still give this re-make a chance.

I think the trailer's misleading on the point of zombies, I think they are the slow, romero type.

I'm probably wrong though, I think every "big" zombie movie since the 90's has featured more predator-type zombies. Nowadays nobody's scared of something you can easily run away fom.

However, I'm a fan of the slow, deader than dead Romero-esque zombies, granted, they're slow and stupid, but it's like a DISEASE, and the strength is in the numbers. Any of the original livign dead trilogy movies woul've sucked if you had zombies hunting people down, hiding around corners, and chasing people.

I still won't waste money on it. I'll save it to go towards getting the original when Anchor Bay releases it next year.

Well it looks better than the "Night of the Living Dead" remake but I am not sure if it will actually fill my need for a good zombie movie.

"28 Days Later" did a fairly good job, for more or less being an unofficial remake of "Day of the Dead". The similarities are many between the movies.

I think I would enjoy seeing Ving Rhames kill the living dead for an hour or so.

i saw the trailer and the zombies look like fast runnin' 28 days later zombies, i prefer the slow marching dead approach. the concept of the humans running out of place to run (because there are so many zombies) is cool.

i hope the idiot who checks his blood pressure during a zombie attack comes back for the remake

Indeed the zombies that are slow yet they feast on your head 9 to 10 at a time is quite dissturbing. I hope they have both. Lazy zombie and worker zombie!

zombies need variety
