Giant Car Eating Robots, George Romero and Cranberry Juice and Vodka... mainly about DIARY OF THE DEAD!!!

Published at: July 3, 2007, 3:36 a.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Harry here... Today's been one of those days. I woke up... did the Tux fitting, Yoko did the did the Wedding Dress fitting. Then we had a business luncheon.... then I got dropped off at the Alamo South so I could worship the greater glory that was Robosaurus. Then - I taped promos for my Reelz Channel. Then I cheered screaming in the rain watching Robosaurus eat and rip cars in two as 30 some odd piece orchestra played the 1812 Overture and a DJ played YOU GOT THE TOUCH and an insane genus talked about how Robosaurus was forged the Mt Edna at the Anvil of Vulcan to bring Destruction to the world of Man! But before that, during my meditation with Robosaurus... my cel phone rang and I was talking to a producer on Romero's LAND OF THE DEAD about this email. Now right now - I'm delirious from 6 beers, 4 32 ounce glasses of Vodka and Cranberry juice.... and a taping with my hopeful co-host of my show... And I'm loopy. But essentially, I think what Romero is saying here about DIARY OF THE DEAD is this... He's found more artistic freedom and sheer joy making DIARY OF THE DEAD than any film he's made since the original. Personally... I'm just thrilled to be sharing a letter from the king of Zombie cinema... Now folks, bow down... we have a message from Him... Mr. George Romero...

Hi, guys, Lemme tell ya about Diary of the Dead. I love it. It’s the first film since my original Night of the Living Dead that I can say is completely my own. I’ve been trying to work under-the-radar, with no hype or press, but lately I've started hearing all kinds of shit about “What’s goin' on with Romero?” “What’s with his new film?” Gimme a break over here! I'm up in Toronto workin' my ass off, making Diary the best it can be. Truth is, I'm having a blast. I've gone home to the kind of filmmaking that I used to do, back in the day. Diary is a hundred percent independent, made with my partner, Peter Grunwald, and our new friends at Artfire. I haven't had this much freedom since 1968. The cast, of what film critics will probably call “unknowns” (they won’t be for long) is, in my opinion, fuckin' great. This one comes from my heart. It's not a sequel or a remake. It's a whole new beginning for the dead. Thanks to all of you who are out there waiting and wondering. You guys, the fans, have always kept me going. Now Diary's keeping me going, night, dawn, and day. I love this movie. I hope you will, too. I'll be back here from time to time to keep you posted. Stay tuned. Stay scared. George A. Romero

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    This is good news. I know a lot of people had problems with Land Of The Dead, but I thought that was a pretty good one. I'm looking forward to this, too, although that title conjures up strange images. Samuel Pepys, maybe, undead and still scribbling away in his journals and whatnot. Every now and then, Samuel pauses to eat some human flesh.<p>Mmm... human flesh...

    Land was utter bollocks, your early films were class

    by bongo123

    but have dated badly, please for the love of god update your zombies, i know people out there like the original slow moving zombs but to me they are utterly unscarey and pretty pathetic unless you show absolutley thousands of them, then they become terrifying so unless you intend to cgi in a coupla thousand extra zombies to actually give a sense of panic to meeting them its pointless, fast moving flesh eaters who will relentlessy pursue you to the end of the earth are infinetly more sacrey than something you could walk away from while playing pokemon on your gameboy... another not please for the love of god remove all references to them gaining intelligence, there rotting for christsakes keep em dumb, Land was such a huge dissapointment, i was hyped to watch it that when i actually did i thought i was watching some DTV bullshit made by some newbie hack, you can do better and dont have the social commentary so in your face. There you go, thats my two cents, slow zombies = ZZZzzz, millions of slow zombies = complete fucking terror, fast zombies = complete fucking terror x 2

    And another thing....

    by bongo123

    One of the great things about Dawn that has yet to age is the sense of dread, the sense of society litterly falling apart in front of our eyes that was the opening sequence. I rate that opening up there with the best of movie openings and sets a great tone for the rest of the movie, unfortunately time has dated the rest but what can you do. So if you can capture that tone and keep it throughout and populate your film with millions of the slow moving fuckers then it might work, cause its been awhile since we had a good flesh eating zombie movie (28weeks although fucking fantastic no end are not zombies)

    by team america

    I liked Land of the Dead. It was a far cry from Romero's original efforts, but way better than Day.... I'm confident that Romero's still got something truly biting left in him. Working with an independent distributor will probably help encourage him, and I'm hoping for the best. Rock on.

  • July 3, 2007, 4:45 a.m. CST

    "sense of dread" = just what this should have

    by readingwriter

    That's precisely what this kind of film needs--it shouldn't feel, like Land did, like some half-hearted attempt to reach out to a broader audience. The original, the only one of the series I still like completely (though I like much of Dawn, too) gave you this feeling that taboo lines weren't being stepped over, they were being completely ignored, and when the foundations of society are nothing, you have that dread-inducing meltdown of order. Think of the little girl murdering her mom--the look of hopeless agony and the awareness of doom on the mom's face, the sound FX--you didn't need no CGI or goofy "humor" ala Land. The tone I hope this thing takes is one of near-hopelessness--once the epidoemic or whatever starts, it can't be prevented, all the protagonists can do is haul ass and hope to live out their lives AWAY from here, because it's all going to the dogs. Horror movies have to reduce the laughs (usually there to give the audience an outlet for what the poor movie makes them want to do) and increase the SCALE. This shouldn't be about an escapable incident ala the awful CHAINSAW remake, but about the END, and we're only able to watch while it just gets worse and worse, with a dwindling number of survivors trying to get somewhere safe. We need it bleak without lame attempts at black comedy.

    You've completely missed the point. The slow moving Zombies represent the inevitability of death. Sure, you can walk away from them. You can shoot them. You can dodge them. Whatever. And that will work for a while. But no matter what you do, they will keep coming. You can kill hundreds - and there are thousands right behind them. And sooner or later, when you get tired, or run out of ammo, they *will* catch up with you. They are immutable; unstoppable. Like the Terminator, they cannot be bargained with, cannot be reasoned with - they will not stop until you are dead. You might survive for hours, or days - maybe months, maybe years. But in the end you'll run out of energy, and they'll catch you. As I say, they represent the inevitability of death. You can delay it, but it will get you in the end.

    Nice one, NachoNegro

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    I was trying to think about what it is about the shuffling zombies that makes them so effective, and there you go hitting the nail square on the head. That relentlessness always scared the poo out me when I was kid, just like it did in Halloween, and that speech from The Terminator (the one you quoted) put the wind up me even when I was probably a bit too old to be getting freaked out by a film about a killer robot.<p>How will I sleep or shower or poo or enjoy a delicious sandwich when these things just KEEP COMING AFTER ME! Scary stuff, I think.<p>Also, people saying Romero can't do anything else should check out Martin or Knightriders or The Crazies. They're pretty good. He's a talented guy (if a bit heavy-handed with the subtext), but I think he's become so well known as 'That Zombie Guy' that he probably finds it difficult to get anything else made.

    I agree, Xiphos, Land of the Dead was horrible

    by Trazadone

    After waiting two decades for a new Romero zombie movie LOTD was a huge disappointment. The entire production looked cheap. Rather than continuing with the epic scope of DOTD and even Day, LOTD looked like it was filmed in a warehouse. The remake of Dawn of the Dead actually kicked Romero's ass.

  • July 3, 2007, 7:11 a.m. CST

    NachoNegro...

    by bongo123

    I get the whole inevitability of death, but the fact remains that slow moving zombies arent that big a threat to a modern society, a single tank could litterly plow through thousands of them at a time, a solid enough wall would again hold back thousands of them as they have no strength due to muscle atrophy so all you would need to do was wait it out for around 6mths and the bloody things would eventually rot and decay to such a point as to render them mute. Which is why i find the fact that fast moving zombies which are mobile, unrelenting and unstoppable much more scarey a prospect.. you try putting a slug into the heads of several zombies running at full telt towards you.. see what i mean, sheer terror, i could sit there all day walking backwards with enough ammo and take out hundreds of the slow movers. Take the Dawn remake which i think was a fantastic movie, the eventual collapse of society is perfectly beleivable due to the speed that these feckers move at, of course armed forces would be overrun quickly, the bloody things would leap through windows and climb over barricades just to get at you. As for the original dawn and slow zombies i just dont think it would be possible for society to collapse in the face of a massive bunch of zombies with the speed and dexterity of my 85 year old granny. I think George should modernise the zombies by making them fast, slow movers just dont cut the mustard in the 21st century, maybe in the 70/80's but not now.

    Romero's last Zombie movie SUCKED!

    by Cinemajerk

    Sad but true. I was shocked when Harry praised it. George Romero's last zombie movie was so bad in so many ways. Seriously, it was worse than some str8 to video stuff or something you'd see on the sci fi channel. Really awful. The script. The direction. That black gas station zombie who actually started COMMUNICATING and ORGANIZING the other zombies was LAME LAME LAME. I can forgive running zombies unlike some. But Zombies should NEVER start THINKING. They should always be raving mad unthinking running zombies or catatonic slow moving UNTHINKING shuffling zombies. THEY SHOULD NEVER EVER START THINKING beyond trying to rip your guts out and eat em! EVERY other zombie movie released recently blew it away. Romero was suppose to be the master...but the remake of Dawn and 28 days later ran circles around Romero's last zombie movie. He may have started it all...but he's been de-throned. Going back to his roots is great and all, but I hope he isn't just puffing hot air up a corpse's arse.

    Nacho and Franklin

    by Kloipy

    Dudes, you hit the freakin nail on the head about slow zombs. They are the scariest. Fast zombies are ok. But damn are the slow zombies scary. The idea of having minutes of terror before you are ripped apart and eaten alive is much scarier than the shock of having zombies run and catch you I think. Like you had said, it's the fact that they will stop at nothing. Eventually even tanks run out of ammo, and how many people have tanks at the ready anyway? The slow zombies will just keep shuffling towards their goal of eating you. No need to run. People have to sleep sometime.

    Land of the Dead

    by Kloipy

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I really liked a lot of LOTD. I even liked the group think of the zombies. I don't want driving zombies, but if the can follow each other and use simple tools, I'm ok with that. But the thing about LOTD I didn't like was the whole Dead Reckoning thing. Most of the movie seemed like a product placement for a nonexistant vehicle. It's all they talked about "Where's DR? Who has DR? I love DR! Let's go find DR? Is DR behind that tree? Zombies are on DR? Oh shit, DR!" they should have cut some of that shit down

    The Amazing Disappearing Cold Cream Mask

    by Samuel Fulmer

    on the train victim in Romero's Marting has to be the worst film mistake of all time. I guess I'm the only person that actually like Land of the Dead. I didn't think it was great, but it was a solid zombie film. I still liked it much better than Day of the Dead (which other than some great SFX, was really tedious). I didn't think the characters in Land were near as compelling as the ones in Night and Dawn, but the story was interesing enough that I don't think it's as bad as everyone else thinks it is. You want to see a really bad movie in a beloved franchise, just watch that movie with Jar Jar in it.

    by BDT

    You've earned it. There is nothing that thrills my heart more than a talented director with vision who can do what they love most in the world without having to compromise or sell out. Sometimes the results are not flashy and sometimes they are flawed, they are honest and pure and usually a great gift to their fans and themselves. Thanks for the update. We will most definitely be there on opening day. We love you, Mr. Romero!

    and it's not the zombies speed that gets people eaten it's the second they let their guard down or get over confident. The zombies are just doing their thing but if you stop concentrating for a second they will get you. That's far more scary than someone running around like a crazed lunatic.

    Slow vs Fast Zombies

    by NachoNegro

    I think you sum it up with your comment - "i could sit there all day walking backwards with enough ammo and take out hundreds of the slow movers". Sure, you could. But what you're not bearing in mind is that you are eventually going to run out of ammo. And it doesn't matter if you have a mini-gun - you could kill thousands, and more would just push through and shuffle after you. You could run for hours, think you have a head start, and then lie down for a kip - and wake up to find them 3 foot away from you, like the tortoise and Achilles. You could hide in a building, and probably you might be OK, i.e. they wouldn't be able to get in. But you wouldn't be able to get out, and you'd watch your food supplies dwindle, each morning looking out on your fate, shuffling around outside. The fast Zombies will kill you immediately, sure. And they'd be pretty terrifying, for a few seconds, before you died. But Romero's Zombies will give you a lifetime of terror, watching death slowly creep up on you, with nothing you can do to slow it's advance.

    Romero's Way

    by ProfGriffin

    Oh yeah...more Romero Zombies, er...ah....GHOULS, uh. Whatever. <br> As far as the ease of defeating Romero's army of shamblers...I can only say this: <br> In the Zack Synder directed Dawn of the Dead and certain offshoots (like Lucio Fulci's Zombie etc..) the dead rise ONLY if bitten by another ghoul. (I think it's worth mentioning that the Zombies on Matool were the product of Voodoo. If any explaination is given in Lucio Fulci's Zombie...which is VERY slight, it's that there's a new Voodoo man on the island, and he's apparently very nasty, and he's responsible for the dead rising.) <br> But I digress. <br> But Romero's zombie rules where pretty clear. You die, you rise again...pretty quickly as the radiation acts only on the DEAD... any dead human. No matter how they die. Can you imagine the number of corpses that would suddenly just get up and start eating? <br> Proof? In Night of the Living Dead, Harry Cooper is shot and dies in the basement. His daughter chews his arm and he rises. He was dead before Karen started chewing. He rose because the radiation affects the DEAD. <br> Also, Mrs. Cooper is killed with a trowel and she rises too. No bites. <br> As as for LAND OF THE DEAD, Seriously, as much as I enjoyed the film overall, I really didn't see it as necessary. <br> In other words, Day of the Dead (which I have grown to love as my favorite Dead film over the years) was a much better final film than this one. Which is why I hope Diary of the Dead satisfies my final Romero Undead movie wishes...(let's face it, he ain't getting any younger) <br> That final scene in Day of the Dead gave hope, and light, and the possibility of new beginnings. The final scene of Land of the Dead closed like another chapter of 'The Adventures of Riley and Slack in Zombie-Town'. In other words, that it could go on. <br> Oh, and I didn't really like Big Daddy as much as I thought I would. He was great, but he certainly didn't give me the warm fuzzy zombie feeling that BUB did. Perhaps it was Bub's lack of coordination and Howard Sherman's amazing performance as he 'learned'. BIg Daddy was a genuis from the start. Plus I honestly felt his make-up was a little lackluster for a lead zombie. (Sorry Greg) <br> But what REALLY makes a Zombie scary? To me, it’s the sheer number of them. One or two zombies don’t really scare me, but an army…well that’s a different matter. They are everywhere. Like cockroaches. Thanks GEORGE! Looking forward to more!

    Anyone who defends LOTD is an APOLOGETIC IDIOT.

    by Cinemajerk

    I don't care how great Romero once was or how he's the grandfather of ALL zombie directors... You cannot DEFEND LOTD. It SUCKED so bad. Admit it. It completely, totally and UTTERLY sucked. In EVERY regard. Lame lame lame. Thinking zombies? No. There is NO evolution in zombies. They are dead. Their flesh is decaying. Their gray matter has gone to complete MUSH. Zombies don't have thoughts. They don't recognize. They don't remember. They have vague reflexes that may LOOK like they are thinking....but their dead brains have only enough energy to seek food. Thats it people. Stop defending movies that give zombies the ability to communicate. That is why Stephen King's movie for "CELL" is going to suck ROYALLY. Not only because Eli "HACK" <cough> Roth is directing....but the whole book was about thinking zombies who could friggin LEVITATE! Enough with the "evolution" of zombies. They are DEAD. They don't EVOLVE....they DEVOLVE. They are temporarily re-animated decaying hunks of flesh. They don't have thoughts. They don't have sex. They don't hang out and play poker. AND THEY DON'T LEVITATE!! ARGGGGGHHHHHH!! :-)

    Slow Vs Fast...

    As for millions of the bastards all shuffling along after you and never giving up, yes to the ordinary survivor there is no escape but to the military or someone with access to a building site and some heavy machines, it would be a simple case of ploughing through them for days on end, can you imagine how many you could kill if you had a single tank? you wouldnt need to fire a single shot, just run over them... up and down all day long, head back refuel and rinse and repeat untill litterly you have killed hundreds of thousands, they just dont represent that big a threat to the military, to you and me, yes, were proper fucked but in order for them to get to you and i they have to get past the military and in this day and age i think the slow zombies would be a minor inconvience to some heavy vehicles. By the way i love the slow ones as well i just personally think they arnt scarey like the fast fuckers, the slow ones can be a right pain in the arse ala the excellant Autum Series of books but those running jumping bitey bastards would easily wipe humanity of the face of the earth

    Sorry, Cinemajerk, I thought it was okay. Not a classic, not up there with Night or Dawn, but enjoyable enough.<p>As to the 'rules' of zombie biology, it seems like something we all ought to relax about. You know, on account of it being not real and all. So, Romero took the idea he started with Bub on to the next level. What's wrong with that? I kind of liked it. He was the Malcolm X of zombies. Zombie X!<p>"We didn't die and eat delicious brains on Plymouth Rock! Plymouth Rock died and ate delicious brains on us!! Wait, that doesn't make sense..."

    LAND had its problems

    by That Reilly Monster

    But on paper it had some interesting concepts. First, it makes sense that once humanity recovered from the shock of having to shoot every corpse in the head there would be some kind of a class structure return. It's just the way we operate. Second, even zombies should evolve. They are (partially) human and would learn to adapt to their surroundings. Good concepts, not so good execution. Hopefully DIARY will make the necessary corrections.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    "An unidentified English man was arrested today and is charged with the brutal murder of frail pensioner Dorothy Braithwaite, 72. Mrs Braithwaite was apparently returning from a trip to the local greengrocers when the man - described as being of medium build and in his early thirties - beat her head in with her own walking stick. Mrs Braithwaite's attacker has been unable to supply any details about himself and has repeated only the words "She was after my delicious human flesh!" since he was taken into custody by the police. There is no word as yet as to the motives of this man, but it is thought Mrs Braithwaite's shuffling gait, lazy eye, and tendency to drool may have been a contributing factor."<p>If you read that story, you will know that it was me, and that I was driven insane by the Ain't It Cool News!

    No pun intended, but Romero beat a dead horse with LOTD

    by Cinemajerk

    I'm not angry at all. I just find it hard to believe that Romero even directed LOTD. It sucky-suck-sucked. Nuff said. I seriously get the feeling that making the movie was a bad experience for him from the tone of his email above. As far as getting all bent up about the "rules" of zombie lore. I am all for re-inventing genres. But after a certain point you cross a line where it becomes something totally different. Like if you start making zombies that run. Ok...its more like a virus than a true zombie. But soon as you start having them THINK and organize, I am sorry, it takes you out of the who experience. You start thinking...HEY...wait a second...thats NOT a zombie....it destroys the illusion. At least for me. I think you can be fresh and new and still stick to the "rules" of zombie-dom. Bubba for me was almost crossing the line. Any further and its not a zombie movie anymore. Seriously, after LOTD....whats next? Zombies hooking up on Myspace? Because once you cross a certain line, it ceases to be a zombie movie anymore. A comedy? Yes. Great liberty can be taken with a comedy. But if its suppose to be a serious zombie film, and starts trying to redefine and bend the rules...I am sorry...its no longer a zombie movie....its something else. 28 days later is really a virus movie. Its well done....and the infected are mindless eating machines. But you could argue they aren't zombies. Its just that if you play with the tradition too much...it becomes something else in my book and you risk taking people out of the whole illusion. Zombies shouldn't think. They shouldn't talk. They shouldn't drive cars or communicate in any way. Bubba shooting a gun was almost too much. I hope Romero goes back to the roots he planted. Gets back to the genre of zombie movie rules he invented. Concentrate on the story by writing a compelling script and main characters. You don't have to change the core of what zombies are....even in the hands of the master himself, you risk making a bad zombie film like LOTD. :-)

    by bongo123

    allowed anywhere near another zombie picture, i mean the dude for all my respect years ago, cant quite cut it in this day and age and i personally think he's gonna fuck up the whole zombie genre when this movie tanks cause it sucks so bad that any other zombie movie out there that had a chance for being greenlit is going to be canned. Personally i think he should leave it well alone, Land was such a disaster of biblical proportions both financially & story/movie wise (and i fucking love my zombies) that the thought of another Land makes my blood boil, because Snyder and Boyle made zombies cool as fuck and Romero came along and fucked up all their hard work and i think hes gonna put the nail in the coffin for the genre... but i pray to god i get to eat those words and write a sincere apology to the man...

    by NachoNegro

    Again, I think you're losing sight of the big picture. Lets say that you, me, Franklin and Kloipy are zooming along in our tank. We've got a bit of music playing, and we're killing ourselves some Zombies. We're running over them, blasting them, shooting them with the side guns, etc. Having a whale of a time. Then, all of a sudden, Franklin checks the fuel gauge. Getting a bit low. I see that we're nearly at a gas station. Kloipy says "no worries lads, I'll nip out and fill her up". So he pops out, connects us the hose, and we wait. The dead get closer. Still filling up (it's a big tank). Dead almost here. Kloipy waits too long, and get's torn apart by Zombies. But no time to mourn - we start running Zombies over. You turn the tank towards the oncoming Zombie hoard. Me and Franklin exchange glances, open the top, and bugger off out of the hatch, and run off. Meanwhile, you happily carry on running over Zombies, laughing maniacally. Hours go by. Dead Zombies are starting to jam up your tracks. There's a wall of dead Zombie bodies surrounding the tank - it can barely move. But they're still coming. And you've just run out of fuel. But then you think "not to worry, they can't get in here!". An hour goes by, with the Zombies tapping on the outside of the tank. You start to feel hungry. And thirsty. You looks out of the transparent hatch - there's thousands of them, just covering the tank, moaning. No chance to get past them. Still a bit thirsty. Not to worry though - you've got 9 days before you die of thirst. Plenty of time to think of a plan.

    "Zombies hooking up on Myspace?"

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    I don't agree with you, Cinemajerk, but that line made me laugh. I wonder if a zombie could get 7000 friends?<p>Anyway, I thought the militant zombie in Land was the next step in the evolution Romero started in Dawn, so it didn't bother me. Dawn gave us the remnants of human behaviour (flocking to the mall), they took it a bit further in Day with trained zombie Bub, and then we got the guy in Land figuring out how to use a gun and organising his oppressed zombie brothers and sisters (and possibly having a meeting down at the docks to form a union). My only regret about this Diary Of The Dead is I'd rather see the next step - full-on human vs zombie warfare. Zombies will fly planes and wear helmets and whatnot in that one.

    by bongo123

    if we were redneckin it in a bloody tank drinking stolen bottles of whisky from some busted Kmart ploughing through zombies i would deserve to die for being that stupid, but if they where fastmoving zombies we wouldn't even have time to refuel and anyone that opened the hatch would be dragged through and torn apart while the others just jumped in and killed everyone in the tank. The terror for me from fast moving zombies is having to stay quiet, to not make a noise that can alert them cause one single noise and within a matter of seconds they're on you, like the brilliant opening to 28weeks later, one minute your eating food with some survivors, the next your running down some field alone being pursued knowing that these fuckers wont tire and wont stop till they get you. I think Romero should have both, keep the purists happy with the slow ones and liven it up some with the fast ones, in that anyone that dies, reainmates and is fast for a few days till rigamortis sets in, so fresh kills/deaths are to be feared, i.e. the sick are quarantined due to how dangerous they can be but meanwhile you have the unrelenting masses outside

    Open on a bunch of jocks breaking into local morgue, they start daring each other to touch the corpse of the recently killed cheeleader from their school. Bobby, the timid but impresionable one of the group, pulls out her slab. He pulls back the sheet and touches her dead and cut up breast. The guys egg him on with promises of booze and pussy, to have sex with the corpse. So bobby gets naked and starts humping the corpse. Mid coitus with hooting and hollering from his friends, said cheerleader sits up. Cue bobby's shocked face. Cheerleader rips his dick off and out of her only to gnaw on it as bobby falls to the floor squealing. All boys in shock as the room comes to life and they are overtaken by zombies. fade to title

    Anyone see 28 weeks later?

    by Cinemajerk

    I thought it was just as good as 28 days later...EXCEPT for 2 things that really bugged me. One: The way they had Robert Carlyle's character keep popping up as if he was following his kids. Again, the whole "thinking" zombie thang that bugs me. Thats why I dug the remake of Dawn of the Dead so much. Remember when Sarah Polley's character escapes the house and her zombie husband is running after her car....and then catches sight of easier prey and runs off? THAT was cool. He wasn't THINKING..."HEY THATS MY WIFE...I'm GOING AFTER HER." No...he was after food. Period. TWO: The ending of 28 weeks later bugged the living crap out of me. They escape in the helicopter. Then quick cut to the eiffel tower and then the inside of an empty helicopter. THE END. WTF??? Worst ending to a good zombie movie EVER. :-)

    Zombies are slow!

    by Automaton Overlord

    I won't try and convince you slow zombies are more likely to take over the world.(by the way I'd imagine nearly all of the USA's tanks are on the other side of the globe right now.) And I won't say fast zombies aren't scarry, 28 days later was a good movie. but those are not zombies! They are more like victims of a strain of rabies that effects humans. They create a totaly different and distinct type of fear. I think we should all just admit that with the birth of the fast "zombie", a whole new sub-genre was introduced. The only reason it wasn't recognized immediatley is because it's so very derivitave of the "true" zombie movies. What we need to do is name this fast moving sub-genre, and let it be seperate and either grow beyond its copy-cat roots, or falter on it's own terms. The truth is if you were playing charades and was required to portray a zombie, you would NOT quickly run around yelling and chomping because you know in your heart of hearts that zombies are slow, even you grandma knows that!

    Can't wait for this!

    by the darkman

    I know a lot of people didn't like Land of the Dead, but I enjoyed it. I think there were to many cooks in the kitchen on that one, and I don't think George was willing to spill the beans about the problems he had. I mean the man walked off the set, and it wasn't like he ran back to the studio to make another picture with them. I do believe they gave old George a hard time with his movie, but in the end I still enjoyed it, and felt it offered up some interesting ideas. Now for Day of the Dead I never understood the dislike for this film, but everyone has their opinions. To me it was a pretty brilliant movie, and to me was the next natural progression for the story. You have a bunch of military, and doctors stunk in an underground bunker. Plus they're not even sure that anyone else in the world is alive, I think anyone in that situation might be a bit pissed off all the time, and miserable. I don't know I always felt for how much I love Night, and Dawn that Day was always the strongest entry in the series.

Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose dead health, no cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter coffin. Choose to eat your friends. Choose rotting leisurewear. Choose wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday night. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose no future. Choose death...

    Slow vs Fast

    by mr transparent

    I think the real scares and threats in any good zombie flick comes not from the speed of the zombies, but from other survivors. The survivors can never get along, never agree, and it's what ultimately leads to their demise. A good zombie flick is pretty much a disaster flick...with flesh eating re-animated corpses instead of a hurricane or earthquake or whatever.

    Profgriffin

    by Ray Gamma

    Everything Profgriffin said above was absolutely spot-on and sums up my feelings too. In fact I couldn't put it any better myself and so I'm gonna paste his comments again here because he makes the most lucid remarks about the previous movies. And yeah, 'Day' is the best of the series by far, Romero himself thinks so too, I know because I heard him say so at a recent pre-film talk. Anyway here's the comments again, this guy sums it all up perfectly: </P> <P> "Oh yeah...more Romero Zombies, er...ah....GHOULS, uh. Whatever. As far as the ease of defeating Romero's army of shamblers...I can only say this: In the Zack Synder directed Dawn of the Dead and certain offshoots (like Lucio Fulci's Zombie etc..) the dead rise ONLY if bitten by another ghoul. (I think it's worth mentioning that the Zombies on Matool were the product of Voodoo. If any explaination is given in Lucio Fulci's Zombie...which is VERY slight, it's that there's a new Voodoo man on the island, and he's apparently very nasty, and he's responsible for the dead rising.) But I digress. But Romero's zombie rules where pretty clear. You die, you rise again...pretty quickly as the radiation acts only on the DEAD... any dead human. No matter how they die. Can you imagine the number of corpses that would suddenly just get up and start eating? Proof? In Night of the Living Dead, Harry Cooper is shot and dies in the basement. His daughter chews his arm and he rises. He was dead before Karen started chewing. He rose because the radiation affects the DEAD. Also, Mrs. Cooper is killed with a trowel and she rises too. No bites. As as for LAND OF THE DEAD, Seriously, as much as I enjoyed the film overall, I really didn't see it as necessary. In other words, Day of the Dead (which I have grown to love as my favorite Dead film over the years) was a much better final film than this one. Which is why I hope Diary of the Dead satisfies my final Romero Undead movie wishes...(let's face it, he ain't getting any younger) That final scene in Day of the Dead gave hope, and light, and the possibility of new beginnings. The final scene of Land of the Dead closed like another chapter of 'The Adventures of Riley and Slack in Zombie-Town'. In other words, that it could go on. Oh, and I didn't really like Big Daddy as much as I thought I would. He was great, but he certainly didn't give me the warm fuzzy zombie feeling that BUB did. Perhaps it was Bub's lack of coordination and Howard Sherman's amazing performance as he 'learned'. BIg Daddy was a genuis from the start. Plus I honestly felt his make-up was a little lackluster for a lead zombie. (Sorry Greg) But what REALLY makes a Zombie scary? To me, it’s the sheer number of them. One or two zombies don’t really scare me, but an army…well that’s a different matter. They are everywhere. Like cockroaches. Thanks GEORGE! Looking forward to more!"

    Pie fight and old news

    by bgart13

    If anyone hates the pie fight in DAWN, go watch Dario Argento's cut of it...he excises it pretty well. In fact, I was impressed by it -- surprised at how good it still was and also that there were things I had never seen before (and I'm a huge Romero/Dead fan). And, really...Diary of the Dead is old news. Except for this letter being "new". Fango has been covering this for a while.

    by Gearfree

    I knew some info was coming soon, was wondering where it was. Anyways, Land was filled with "slight" issues. Such as Dennis Hoppers enthusiasm for the movie. Seeing most major film company's want a bigger hand in how the films are made, hearing of the "lack" of chefs in this kitchen will help it out. No one pushing for a big name actor for the draw, the story sticking to the original concept. Cant wait for more news.

    can't be bothered to read all the posts, but you guys were the first - don't request movie news and reviews about other films here you retards, i don't give a fuck if you care about this movie or not, you are morons for even speaking out, whiny little parasites posting innocuous messages on random threads like little bitches. you remind me of the worst movie goers of all time - the people who ask "is he gonna get killed?" halfway through a suspenseful moment in a movie, without seeing it through. stick to mtv, i think you're missing jackass, hopefully you'll be appearing soon on the latest faces of death and i can laugh like hell you pitiful pieces of shit. As for Romero, game on motherfucker, let's hope you swing one out the park like you did with (and i'm out on a limb here i know) creepshow! i agree with the guy who said slow zombies aren't scary, but thousands are, and i think 28 weeks pretty much did the fast zombie (infected whatever) thing already.

    About slow zombies

    by WarpedElements

    Anyone who says "slow zombies aren't scary" needs to read World War Z. Entertaining and well written. Slow zombies, in close quarters, piles of them coming down streets, just walking out of unexpected places/etc. Hell if you want the zombies 'scary', give them fangs, and tanks, blah blah blah. The slow zombies represent the masses. The fast zombies are just animals. But, to each their own./

    Romero used fast zombies

    by Eyegore

    The very first zombie ever seen in Night of the Living Dead... the old man in the cemetary. He shambles a bit at first, then when he is unable to break through a car window with his bare hands, goes right down and picks up a rock to smash it, without hesitation. Then when the car rolls down the road, he runs after it. The first Romero zombie ever shown is a runner and a tool user. Do you all forget? Also, the kids at the airport in Dawn of the Dead. They also run when they charge into the room to tackle. I know the vast majority of Romero zombies are shamblers, but you have to admit that in Romero's classic movies there are exceptions, and I guess according to Romero, room for both types.

    Land of the Dead was okay but disappointing

    by Eyegore

    I liked the story, but really hated the entire big daddy thing. The subtext being that the zombies were just victims, victimized by the raiders who rode through their town killing them when they just wanted to be left alone to do zombie things. Holding hands in the park, pumping gas, playing in a band. The gas pumping and clumsy trombone playing was fine. Holding nand not so much. Big Daddy leading a zombie revolution was just annoying. Growling/Roaring at everyone he meets. Where is Romero heading with this? If he keeps going this way, Diary of the Dead could very well be about a Zombie who just wants to be left alone to do Zombie things, and writes about the bad living people who kill his friends in his Zombie diary. I know it's retarded, but the series is seeming to go that way. The Zombies will be the heroes. It was already halfway there in LoTD. And the last scene, were the star zombie hunter looks at Big Daddy and decides not to kill him because they're 'just looking for a place of their own' if friggin retarded! Those Zombies were on thier way out after eating many of his friends in the city! WTF?

    I hear Romero's a super nice guy

    by WolfmanNards

    I love his dedication to the zombie genre. Some people give him crap about it. But fuck them. There are directors that only do action, directors that only do drama, directors that only do comedy. Romero does zombie, and he does it best.

  • July 5, 2007, 12:03 a.m. CST

    Re:World War Z movie?

    by Gearfree

    I'm quite sure I heard about them making a movie of it. Sadly we can only hope for a good director. But yea, it isnt much of a pro-government movie as they get their asses kicked by a bunch of zombies. Its the NEW government that forms after the crisis that fights the Zack. The old VP spends his days after the war working on an "alternative energy project", deserving all the cowpies he steps in. If we cant get a good Castlevania or Resident Evil movie(DAMM YOU ANDERSON!!!) at least we can look forward to Romero. And as a slight note, while "When Harry ate Sally" does sound like a porn movie, Flesh Gordon is a smut film. Hell it even had a sequal.

    Make up, George. PLEASE!

    by Dookiee

    I hated LOTD b/c the make up looked so fake! The lead zombie's face had sagging skin in front but miraculously the back of his head was smooth as any live person. This was HUGE gaff & totally ruined the illusion for me when I 1st saw LOTD. PLEASE don't screw that up again. What a disappointment! Think realistically what would happen to one's skin if one were walking dead. The only way these films ever work is if our reality is suspended the whole, time we're watching. NOTLD started a great tradition. DAWN was my fav for yrs. DAY was just too whiney w/ crazy soldiers for my taste. And I already opined about LAND. Here's hoping George can take DIARY to the REAL next level. Peace~

  • July 6, 2007, 11:09 a.m. CST

    So many haters...

    by CondomWrapper

    I like LOTD quite a bit, it took Romero's zombie universe further in the direction he showed in Day of the Dead with zombies evolving. It's allegorical politics were interesting as well, unless of course you're a Republican. I thought it was remarkable that Romero was able to create sympathy for the zombies, something that's never been done before in any zombie film. It's less black and white than other zombie films and is more a shade of greys. Was it perfect? No. Do I like it more than Night, Dawn, and Day? No. But I think it's a worthy follow-up to Day and is underappreciated by most critics and fans. And cinemajerk, when you grow up hopefully you'll realize that analyzing films are not a zero-sum game. There are virtually always pluses and minues to any film, but people like you have two categories: "It sucks!" and "It rules!" That to me is truly idiotic.

  • July 7, 2007, 9:46 a.m. CST

    zombies are not sympathetic

    by McCroskey

    One of the problems with Land of the Dead is its attempt to make the audience feel sympathy for the zombies. How are you supposed to feel sympathy for something that eats any living person it comes across? And they didn't just eat the privileged folks (i.e. Republicans I guess in Romero's ridiculous vision), but they also went after any of the street people (those opprssed by the evil white Republicans) who were unlucky enough to be in their path. And again, Simon Baker's Riley character is such a dick. The whole part about letting the zombies live because 'they are just looking for a place of their own, just like us' or some bullshit like that is just bullshit. I mean, why would he not take the opportunity to kill a zombie he believed was evolving? Why not eliminate this special threat? And why fire off all of the fireworks? Just because the local zombies have wised up doesn't mean that it won't work on the next horde they run into.

    haters, schmaters -- how about SOME NEW FUCKING IDEAS?!

    by duanejones

    i stand in proud solidarity with cinemajerk et al. to inquire after what those of you who might consider there being ONE SINGLE GOOD THING WORTH DISCUSSING ABOUT _LOTD_ could possibly be smoking. i'd love some. maybe then the hidden virtues of recent argento flicks will emerge. in the interim, i'm always rising from the dead to spread that sense of "genuine dread" which deservedly should emerge every time el jorge gets funding for a new travesty. as much as _diaries shouldn't play with dead things_ gave george a marvelous sense of aesthetic freedom, i am confident it will give me a sense of genuine dread in my duodenum until i pass my breakfast and the memory of another romero disappointment, simultaneously. surely, george has some OTHER IDEAS he could make films about? _bruiser_ sucked but the first half did have a couple few ideas and a glimmer of a promise of a potentially interesting film about yuppie consumption and that which we appear to be (read: masks). george, can't you please give your tired variations on "they're us" a fucking rest, already? pretty please, with some intestines on top??

    by PlasmaOrb

    George Romero is way over rated... the movies arent even scarey at all... its almost funny to think how people are scared of blue faced zombies in a mall that walk like retards on heroin. I felt like i could walk through that mall and just throw a toothpick at the zombies to make them fall over. Dawn of the Dead was good when it was remade a few years ago.. i know alot of people are purists and elistist assholes about this topic, but what would scare you more.. some milk of magnesia faced stoner or some bloody one armed oriental chasing after you at full bore... the later would do it for me.

    by FraDolcino

    I hate seeming like a shill but since we're all talking about goofy zombie named movies, I helped my friends make a short B&W zombie comedy called "Lawrence of Zombania"... I'd say check it out if you can, but for some reason the director won't put it on youtube, despite me telling him no one's watching it otherwise... Anyway, this sounds interesting and although I was disappointed in Land of the Dead I'll still check out any Romero zombie...

    i really wanted to love

    by blonde redhead

    LOTD, but i hated it. i feel like most filmmakers, even the best of them, have a finite number of great pictures in them, and this goes for herzog, scorcese, pretty much anyone you can name. when you're young you're really itching to tell stories, when you get older that fire burns out a little, or if you're marty, you pander to the fucking academy by making films that aren't half as good as what you did when you were young. hell, new york, new york was better then infernal affairs, 'scuse me, the departed, and that's the god's honest. which is why i want george to stop making zombie movies. i thought day was a perfect coda to the trilogy, bleak when it needed to be and hopeful in the end. LOTD was a mess, and that script was a mess long before any suit got their hands on it. as for the fast vs. slow debate? both are scary. both are zombies. i would not care to get lunched out on by either a slow moving zombie or a fast one. pretty much seals the deal for me.
