    Defending Day O8

    ****... I got nothing.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    For a minute there I almost believed this was gonna be a real thread ... but THANKFULLY it wasn't!

    Ghey'08, aka Day of the Bulgarian Name-Raping Ceiling-Running CGI-Raptor Things, is absolutely indefensible ... it's beyond anus, it really is.

    And what do I mean by that? This:

    It's floating in the bog, lurking around just waiting for someone to lift the seat and go "ah dude, gross" before flushing the lav three times to shift it, while spraying Febreeze about like a Bug Bomb.

    I don't know what's wrong with you people, or why you give this movie such a hard time.

    Day '08 is perfect...the perfect coaster to set your pint on.

    Heh. At least it's a lot easier to block this film (if you can go so far to call it that) out of our minds, unlike some other films that have used the original titles. I just thank my lucky stars that this film did not get a wide release. Pheeew. Although I don't care much for public opinion, this film would have disgraced the name of a truely great horror film. It has been done so many times before (Halloween, Aliens vs. Predator, Dawn(to some), etc.) and I'm just glad that it didn't happen to Day.

    Actually RZ's Halloween is probably the prime example of an 'okay' remake. AVP and Yawn 04 I will agree with, although AVP is a sequel really.

    Just don't mention The Fog remake. That's one film that makes Ghey 08 look like Ben Hur.

    I will disagree with you about the RZ remake.

    i must defend the halloween remake too. as a huge fan of the first two halloween films (all the others are non-existent in my book), i felt RZ did the series justice, at least compared to the crap that had come out with the name halloween attatched to it over the last couple of decades (busta ryhmes, anyone)

    but i've not seen the day remake, nor will i ever, if i can help it, so i won't even bother commenting on this atrocity further.

    nice thread, btw. when i first saw this, i was like: WTF?!?! should have busted this one out on april fool's day.

    Well, I'm certain some zombies got shot in the head. I know, that's a reach, but it is a positive.

    Whilst running across the ceiling on all fours ... a ceiling that crumbles mere seconds later - that sort of cork board ceiling ... how the f*ck can that support the weight of a person? Mind you, it was CGI, and CGI doesn't weigh anything, so...

    An absolute sh*t-piss anus fest is what it is.

    Hey now! To be fair, maybe the ceiling running zombie was Peter Parker!




    Yeah, I don't think so either.

    I gave this 'masterpiece' to my best friend as a'joke' present for Christmas.
    He says "You are going to hate me....but I enjoyed the Day remake".
    I don't hate him. He is simply now dead to me

    Well, at least you now know you can give him a piece of crap as a present, and he will like it! That will make shopping easy for you

    Worse than Contagium? Hard to believe, but... yeah. Funny, I did the same thing with my friend and the Contagium DVD... forced him to watch it. We're still friends.
