Review
George Romero's classic horror satire gets a rather more serious modern day makeover, resulting in a genuinely frightening addition to the zombie genre. The plot remains fairly true to the original, portraying a world where all the seats around Satan's dinner table have been filled, forcing the recently departed to walk the earth instead. Only this time they don't walk, see. They run. And it is this subtle change that moves this film from gory satire to an edge-of-the-futon suspense horror, as a group of survivors gather together in a nearby shopping mall and figure out what to do in the face of an army of ugly, bloodthirsty screamers. Some deeply unpleasant scenes (especially the ones involving the pregnant lady...) will please those with warped minds, whilst the numerous excellent set pieces are very exciting. Good show, guys! Never mind the purists...
