    This is my favorite Zack Snyder film because it feels absolutely nothing like a Zack Snyder film.

    Another film that left little ten year old me terrified and sleep deprived for a good chunk of my life, DAWN OF THE DEAD is not only one of my favorite films, but it's one of those rare remakes that holds its own against its predecessor. And while it may not be on par with THE THING or THE FLY when it comes…

    A co-worker pushed this movie on me. I let it sit on my shelf for many weeks, until today, when in a bored state I decided to pop it on to kill some time.

    When I first accepted the Blu-ray, I thought I was getting the 1979 version of the film. But no, it turned out to be this dreadful remake. I think I saw the original long ago, like in the early 80's. It didn't make an impression, really,…

    Speaking of Dawn of the Dead, the remake, directed by Zack Synder, was receiving backlash from fans of the original (as other horror remakes do) as there wasn't a need to remake it. I actually didn't know this was a remake until I saw the original months later after seeing this. And after seeing more recently now, I think Dawn of the Dead (2004) is a great remake. Is it perfect and as good as the original? No. But is…

    Una de las mejores películas del subgénero de zombies que se han hecho. Divertida y bien rodada.

    Though I love both 'Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole' and 'Watchmen', I actually think Snyder's remake of George A. Romero's 'Dawn of the Dead' may be his finest and most personal work of the three. Usually I stay away from contemporary remakes of the classics like the plague, because to me, atmosphere is everything, and today's directors tend to significantly miss that point, but sometimes I just can't stop myself, and it helped that two recent character…

    One of the better remakes out there. I would give them props for the fast zombies but I'm pretty sure 28 days laters did it first with their "zombies". Still, a pretty fun ride with some pretty good acting..not really too into the zombaby but meh. Great opening scene though! Enjoyed the ending as well. Wouldn't mind watching a Dead Island movie...make it happen people!

    Damn, I forgot how good this is. This is one of the better zombie movies out there, highlighting a new style of frantic, animal-like, fast-moving zombies. They race like packs of dogs and it makes the film intense in spots. In an underground parking lot scene, a swarm of zombies races across huge room towards some people. One guy is left behind and when the zombies reach him, they are running so fast that some of them run straight by…

    Der fünfte Film des Halloween Abends.

    Das bisher beste Remake der großen Klassiker der Zombiekunst. Ein sehr guter Zombiefilm mit genialen Szenen und gute Umgebungswahl. Es sollte mehr solcher klassischen Zombiestorys geben.

    "So what's the plan?"
    "The plan is you drink a nice tall glass of shut the fuck up."

    ***

    The exquisitely apocalyptic opening credits - spine-tinglingly scored with Johnny Cash's 'The Man Comes Around' - remain the best part of the whole film.

    And isn't it funny how the best line on offer in this version - ("When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the earth") - just happens to be the one that's directly cribbed…
