Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: 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.

- Brian Orndorf,, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: A chaotic mess of violence and gore...

- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010

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

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.

I quite liked this zombie horror flick! I love zombie movies as a whole and although this isnt the best in storyline and direction it is still verymuch enjoyable!

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
