    Yes, but the modern zombie genre is well known for its gore content. That's how its founder (viz. Romero) envisioned it and how most of his early Spanish & Italian followers (Ossorio, Grau, Fulci, Girolami, Bianchi, Mattei) also saw it and fully exploited it.

    But yes, having recently re-watched Night 1990, although I enjoyed it, I'd have to say the original is the better overall flick...
    I have mixed feelings about the acting in both films. Some of the actors from the 1968 film did a better job than those of the remake, and vice versa. Also, the way the characters were written in both films also has an influence on this. For example, I prefer the original Cooper than the remake one. The Cooper of the remake was too much of an a-hole to be believable. The "a-holeness" of the original Cooper was more realistic. In fact, you can feel more sympathy for a character like the original Cooper than that of the remake. At least the original Cooper sometimes did make more sense than the other characters.

    I dunno, if you grew up with an abusive father or were ever in an abusive relationship i think remake Cooper would be believable. His asshole behaviour in a crisis was exactly what i would expect from a domineering man especially in regards to the way he treated his wife Helen.
