I have an ongoing hate/hate relationship with zombies. Towards that end I present this:
Sneak Preview: DIARY OF THE DEAD, 2007, The Weinstein Company, 95 min. Shot over a short 23 day schedule, director George Romero bleeds new life into the DEAD franchise with this unnervingly realistic recreation of events, depicted as they unfold. Student filmmakers shooting their own horror movie are caught in the middle of the zombie invasion and turn their cameras on the reanimated corpses, documenting the sudden dire calamity that threatens to destroy civilization as we know it. A cast of unknowns adds to the realism. With Michelle Morgan, Joshua Close, Shawn Roberts, Amy Lalonde. "…one of the most daring, hypnotic and absolutely vital horror films of the past decade… Outlandish, expressionistic and absolutely, disorientingly alive, DIARY OF THE DEAD is the movie that Romero’s legion of cultists—this critic included—have been screaming for: a fascinating, almost art-house railing against a mad, mad world." – Chris Alexander, Fangoria Discussion following with director George Romero.
