    Christ, if they're reading this thread we're probably giving them ideas for a sequel to their piss-poor excuse for a 'remake'. All the other terrible remakes are gathering around like gibbering ghouls, pouring pig blood into a bucket in preparation.

    What I want to know is, why do the people making this shite feel the need to try to add something new to the genre. Romero got it right first time. The Bub evolution was the acceptable limit, and take big daddy out of the equation, the zombies in Land of the Dead going around poorly mimicking aspects of their old life was the very limit.

    I wonder if this fucking Max character actually talks... I feel it in my bones that the fucker will talk. This is going to be a whole new level of wank. Half human - Half Zombie... "Well, hello there Aunt Alicia. How are you this very fine day? Can I lick your face menacingly because I am from your past and I want to destroy your soul from the inside out.

    NNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGF

    If I was a billionaire I would make it my business to shut this fucking thing down.

    They should give the job of remaking classic zombie movies to people who know the subject inside out and actually know what they are doing, like Nicotero or Savini.

    Why can't these damn morons just take the first script Romero wrote, but scrapped due to budget constrains, and do a few moderizations to make it time appropriate?

    I've read it. The original script makes what we saw on screen look like the difference between Jaws and Jaws IV.

    Either they're too stupid to manage it, or it's possible that they don't have the rights to that original script. I'm sure that even if they did they'd make a complete arse-up of it.

    TBH, I've always been happier with the film we got.

    The original script was something I read on here around 98. It's what got me lurking on the site til I actually bothered to join up. But, while it sounded good, I still thought the finished film, including the necessary compromises) was better.

    In the right hands, though, the original script could be great. But, I don't think there's anyone around who could make it so. Even Romero would have struggled with it in his later years.
    I'm runnin' this monkey farm now Frankenstein.....

    Agreed. I saw the version we got a good while before I ever knew there was a previous version of the script, so Day of the Dead has always been what it is to me.
