When the situation spirals out of control and the infected residents develop a taste for human flesh, the military and surviving

It's such a fun zombie movie, I'm amazed it didn't get a full theatrical release.

It's a pageant of stupidity that hopes gushing wounds and deliberate fanboy-catnip slices of ultraviolent cheese will mask the reality that it's a worthless offering in an increasingly abused genre.

Nowhere near the worst zombie movie I've ever seen, but it will follow in the slew of truly atrocious remakes undeserving of their titles...

No matter how you slice it, this one is just plain dead on arrival.

Audience Reviews for Day of the Dead

The remake of Day of the Dead is one of those films that just don't cut it. This is a poorly constructed film that is a mess from start to finish. Helmed by veteran horror director Steve Miner, Day of the Dead is a boring, awful film with no redeeming qualities. People have told me to avoid this film, now after seeing it, I understand why. Poorly acted and poorly directed, this remake is horrible and is a slap in the face of the original film. The cast deliver poor performances and quite frankly are miscast in their parts. As far as this remake is concerned, it suffers the same fate as others, and it doesn't live up to the original. Steve Miner is a capable horror director, but with Day of the Dead, he fails to deliver something watchable. The film is clumsy, silly and stupid. There are no redeeming factors within the film. Day of the Dead just belongs on the very long list of remakes that fail to match up to the original in every respect. If you're looking for a good zombie flick, you won't find it here. This is an awful remake of a classic film, one that is so poorly conceived that it's not even worth checking for the sake of seeing how bad it is. The horror factor is absent, and the film relies on a good dose of blood and gore, which ultimately doesn't pay off. This film fails to deliver what horror fans really want. Stick with the original, as this plays out like every other remake, and it makes you appreciate the original film that much more.

This is one of the best Zombie films that I have ever seen. Enjoyable right from the start. And I'm not a Big Nick Cannon fan but in this movie he seems to say just the right things at the right time to bring laughter into the film. Some real good Gore and special effects. Not one to pass up and would be a great Halloween Film Festival Movie. This is not your typical teenager zombie crowd movie, its much more then that. I have never given a zombie film 4 stars but this one deserves it. 4 Stars

A collection of survivors and military personnel try to escape from an outbreak of a deadly virus in a small town that turns the inhabitants into flesh eating creatures. My God, there are so many things wrong with this film I don't know where to start. For one, it is NOT a remake of Day Of The Dead. It has so little in common with it, it might as well call itself a remake of 28 Days Later or Resident Evil; in fact the crappy script was like watching a 90 minute videogame cut scene. Mena Suvari (along with the rest of the cast for that matter ) has no presence whatsoever, with only Ving Rhames showing any charisma at all and I felt duped by his name being attached to it because he is hardly in it. Not to mention the fact that the "zombies" can now crawl up walls as well as run around like berserkers as if they've all been bitten by radioactive spiders so it's actually far more like a vampire film than a zombie film. A sense of humour would've helped, especially since it expects you to swallow the concept of a vegetarian zombie (a VEGETARIAN f***ing ZOMBIE??) with a completely straight face. It does have enough blood and guts to stave off boredom, but despite the rather impressive remake of Dawn, this isn't even close to being in the same league. But at least it's better than the unforgivably atrocious remake of Night Of The Living Dead.
