    ★★½

    I think... it ain’t good! The chaotic nature of the movie is great and Romero is giving us a narrative we don’t get to see often, but it’s clear he’s bitten off more than he can chew and the movie constantly suffers from feeling like the shaggiest “teens made this in the backyard” vibe.
