Audience Reviews

3 stars

A pretty good remake of the original, executive produced and scripted by George A. Romero. Of course, it's inevitably tempting to wish he'd directed as well, but make-up man turned director Tom Savini does a decent job on the whole, surprisingly abstaining from excessive gore effects. Much of the pleasure for fans of the original derives from the clever confounding of our expectations. Though nothing can match the shattering final irony of Romero's version, Savini's climaxes with its own effective clutch of ironies.

Despite this being an okay remake watching it still felt a bit like pissing on a van Gough.

A remake of the original "Night of the Living Dead" with enhanced gore effects, tweaked characters, full-color scenes, synthesized music and effective direction. It's powerful in its own right and does not diminish or insult the original. I liked it. The only sad thing about it is the ugly DVD cover.
