    The one thing I admit to liking is the remix of the song "getting down with the sickness". Lol

    Another thing: the remake did NOT feature the biker gang assault on the shopping mall. How can you have a Dawn remake without a rendition of one of its most iconic sequences??? It's like if someone made a remake of Fulci's Zombie and there was no rendition of the shark vs zombie sequence, or the splinter-through-the-eye scene, or the group of zombies munching on Mrs. Menard's corpse sequence, or the Conquistador zombies rising from their graves sequence... total BLASPHEMY!

    Note: obviously with the super-athlete zombies of the Dawn remake there could not be a biker assault on the shopping mall sequence. This is one of the disadvantages of introducing these exaggeratedly fast zombies that make Usain Bolt look like a turtle in comparison. In fact pretty much no one would have a chance of surviving if zombies were so fast, even an armed biker gang like the one in the original Dawn would be overwhelmed by them pretty fast.

    Well on the other hand that's exactly what makes the fast zombies scary is the fact that realistically nobody would ever be able to survive them. While I do enjoy the shamblers more they kind of give the human characters too much of a fighting chance because they are so slow and easy to kill. Also I kind of like zombies that are intelligent enough to use weapons like the ones in Nightmare City, the shibito in the Siren games, and of course Bub in Day of the Dead. To me nothing is more terrifying in a zombie outbreak than a zombie coming at you with a blade or gun.
