ZOMBIE WEEK DAY 3 NIght of the Living Dead/Survival of The Dead


Hello everyone is DAY 3 of  ZOMBIE WEEK!!  It's also my Birthday so I'm just going to do a quick post and giveaway:












I wanted to a sort of ALPHA/ OMEGA  type of review about two George Romero films. I think most Zombie fans might trace a great bit of their zombie love to the original Night Of The Living Dead. The Remastered Anniversary edition doesn't disappoint! Since I've seen the movie Numerous times I watched it this time with the commentary track. I was doubly impressed hearing the cast and crew talk about their experience making the movie. You get a sense that all facets of the movie were a wonderful collaborative effort. It is a great treat to hear these stories from the actors and George himself The action and horror scenes of the film  are still thrilling after all these years, and the remastering looks great.



I'm Sorry to say friends that I  "took one for the team" when it came to Survival of the Dead :( I don't know the full extent of George's involvement in this film but i was underwhelmed. This movie follows a group of AWOL soldiers (as seen in Diary Of The Dead) and shows a series of events that lead them to a place called Plum Island in Delaware. Now I haven't been to Delaware but I think i can safely say the locals probably don't like uneducated, twangy southern stereotype's! This movie is rife with very badly done acting and writing.  Even the zombie make up and CGI is very badly done. I was disappointed,. Thankfully I had the classic Night of The Living Dead anniversary pack to ease my disappointment.


Now For The Contest!! Just a small one today since I 'm giving away an AWESOME Dexter prize pack today (see above) :

Don't want to be entered in the contest, but Night of the Living Dead is one of the best movies ever. I've watched it so many times. Just this year I found out there's even a deeper message in it. Who knew? They talked about it in some movie we watched in my Horror class (Yes, I got credit for a class about horror stories and movies. I love college.).
