Synopsis:
--------------
In his first independent zombie film in over two decades, George A. Romero returns to ground zero in the history of the living dead. When a group of film students making a horror movie in the woods discovers that the dead have begun to revive, they turn their cameras on the real-life horrors that suddenly confront them, creating a first person diary of their bloody encounters and the disintegration of everything they hold dear. Told with Romero's pitch-black humour and an unflinching eye on our modern world, GEORGE A. ROMERO'S DIARY OF THE DEAD marks the legendary trailblazer return to his roots.

HMV is £3.99

Diary of the Dead is excellent. Most of the reviews of it are stupid. It's easily Romero's best of the modern ones.

I haven't watched Survival yet though. I did get it for £2.99 somewhere.

It's a good price for a steelbook, but the film is not that great.

Survival Of The Dead is the next one



It was unbelievably bad. The only recent entry to the series that I enjoyed was the Dawn of the Dead, which he coincidentally did not direct.

The film is fairly awful.
Lousy acting and some horrible CGI splatter effects, and nothing like the satiric edge of the previous ...Dead films.
Decent price but you'll probably not watch it more than once, nor be interested enough to want an extra disc of 'Making Of' docs.

Seriously people, I don't normally do this but this is up there with one of the worst things I have ever seen. The acting is shockingly bad.

Its the only time in my life that i have walked out of a cinema.

He wrote and directed the original Dawn of the Dead. That was his previous independent one, before he went with a studio for Day of the Dead and let them rip it to pieces (most of the original premise later becoming Land of the Dead), which is why the description above says this is 'his first independent zombie film in over two decades'. The 'recent' Dawn of the Dead (which is now 7 years old) was, obviously, a remake. And you mean incidentally, not coincidentally.

Yeah, this is one is pretty bad really. You have my sympathy if you paid for a cinema ticket to see this. It's at least enjoyable enough to watch through once, but the problem is it tries to be all high-concept and just doesn't fulfil. The low budget and bad acting don't help, and the end result is it takes itself too seriously. I preferred Surival of the Dead - that one's just so ridiculous it's funny, more like it's bad-on-purpose in an Evil Dead sort of way (not that it's as good as Evil Dead).

Anyway, this is worth £2.49 if you haven't seen it yet (but don't expect to watch it more than once), or just have to have it to complete your Romero collection.

I enjoyed Night and Dawn (& Remake) of the Dead. Are any of the others worth watching?

To clarify: I love Dawn of the Dead (1978) and Day of the Dead (1985). The Dawn remake is quite good and the rest are terrible :p

Good deal ... but terrible movie.

More a clumsy critique of society's need to document events in film rather than an enjoyable zombie flick. Stick with Night, Dawn and Day.

Day definitely is. There's also a remake of that, but I didn't think it was up to much. The remake of Night is pretty good, though. Land is worth watching once maybe, then Diary and Survival... maybe just for the hardcore fans.

Glad you said that. :p Too many people watched the Dawn remake without even realising it was a remake. :( It is really good, as far as remakes go, though. More of an action film than the original and doesn't get as heavy with the social commentary, but really enjoyable nonetheless.
