    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.

    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.

    Just when you thought Taurus were done dragging Romero's name through the mud while simultaneously shitting all over one of the man's greatest works, this turd basket comes along.

    Oh dear!

    1) Running/fast moving zombies? CHECK!
    2) Dinosaur roaring zombies? CHECK!
    3) Pretty "teenagers" in seemingly high positions normally requiring far older and more experienced people? CHECK!
    4) Needless booby/sex scene(s) for teenage male titillation? CHECK!

    Sorry George!

    I don't know, looks better than I expected it to.

    Well, it cannot be as bad as the Day of the Dead pseudo-remake, that is a safe assumption.

    I guess that did have ceiling crawling zombies... How did that ever make sense to anyone involved with that film in anyway at all!? How did that idea come out of a meeting with a thumbs up?

    Why was that train-wreck of a movie even branded with the same name as Romero's movie??? It doesn't have anything whatsoever to do with Romero's Day except for the fact that both movies have zombies. That was a pure shameless attempt at capitalizing on the name of a famous zombie film, nothing else. Thus why I call it a pseudo-remake.

    I can't say I'm surprised. Romero's respected work will continue to be ripped off for as long as we're around and even further than that.

    I'm not sure I agree that anyone should make his original script though. Seems to me that the money constraints and the resulting "trimming of the fat" actually helped the film. He kinda threw in everything, including the kitchen sink, into that original script. It would have been too much and wouldn't have come out to the respected classic we have now. The producers requiring him to cut it back actually helped him to refine it, IMO. Essentially giving the film a lot of what makes it the best of the original trilogy to a lot of fans.
