DOTD Remake – Will Any of the Original Remain?

Well, the trailer for the latest of Romero’s remake cycle, Day of the Dead, has received a lot of attention lately.

The original movie centered around an isolated military base that was home to a small group of survivors. The story Romero told wasn’t really about zombies, it was about the nature of the militaristic/industrial complex and the relationship we have with it. Zombies were just the medium he used to tell his story, which is what George Romero typically did with his zombie movies.

Problem is, not all of the attention that the remake is getting is positive. A lot of classic Romero fans thought Day of the Dead, although certainly not the best of his zombie movies, contained some of the best elements, and really defined a lot of what we know about modern “zombieness.”

What do you think, Zombiephiles? Will this remake be as good as the Dawn of the Dead remake?

Moans.

  1. looks like it’ll be fun and crappy.

  2. Marty Party

    it’s trying to be 28 days/weeks later. Super fast zombies and the military involvemet looks like 28 days later. It’ll probably be cool, but it’s not what it was once =[

  3. Eibmoz

    I really liked the original, because of the human stories. This may be fun, but it looks like it has nothing to do with the orginal. However, a good zombie killin’ is always good.;)

  4. Oh man, I thought that looks absolutely horrible. Day is my favorite of the Dead movies (as unpopular my opinion may be…) and I hate to see it remade like this.

  5. blish

    not an evil corporation again! it looks more like resident evil than the original.

    that said, i’ll still watch it at least once…

  6. brutalwit

    I agree completely with blish, as when I watched the trailer “Resident Evil” immediately popped into my head. It’s a shame it won’t be more like the original, but today’s audience probably wouldn’t be as interested.

    Also, it said “APRIL 2007” at the end of it. If it’s been pushed back this far already, it’s usually not a sign of a good movie.

    A few things:
    1) its hardly a remake, just the same name and genre.
    B)Ving Rhames again?, and he seems to be playing the same character.
    IV)at the end there, they use the Zed word

  8. Drew Campbell

    Isn’t Ving supposed to be playing his brother from the first movie.

  9. Masuqerade King

    Ok, I know most of you wont like this, for its a remake, but give it a chance atleast. Im sorry it dont have the crappy camera nagles and the slow groaning zombies everywhere, but damn, isnt the purpose of this movie character interaction, and death by zombies? Well, it seems to have it both. So try and enjoy, and quit being stuck up on the past.

  10. Witless Philistine

    Man, that crap was crap.

    Awful editing on the trailer, which is a bad sign seeing as that wasn’t a contract job. In-house trailers are good indications of end quality…

    Zombie movies have to know that they’re fundamentally ridiculous, in my mind, or be effectively frightening enough that we can ignore the concept. This didn’t look like it had a shot at either way into the “good zombie movie” zone

  11. khaaaaaaaaaannnn

    saw it. it blew. why did it blow well it was to much like 28 days later where the zombies retained memory and actually tried to help or do nefgarious things to help the non-zombie character and two those zombies were quick. they move faster than i could probably as fast as the aliens in Aliens. on the walls and ish like they where spiderman. It was laughable and i am not glad i saw it but i’m glad to say i saw it for free. Good God it was abissmal that man needed to give remaking his movies a rest the first time.Oy Vey.

Zombies moan. Zombiephiles moan back.
