for the exploitation fans
20 March 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Curse of the Maya was the original title but again, that doesn't attract the zombie fans. When they changed it to Dawn of the Living Dead it became noticed. But don't compare it with Romero stuff. This is pure exploitation. It contains bad acting, weird story lines, for example when she goes to bath she starts dreaming, when she wakes up she's out of bath and dressed but a few moments later she's back in bath. And the thing with the sun and the changing skies doesn't did the film any good. The colour grading is the worst you can see. Some scene's are underexposed, or filmed with the wrong colour temperature. But if you can stand that than you will have some bloody shots and even one gory shot of a beheading by the zombies. There is some gratuitous nudity, a strip that nothing had to do with the story. If you love exploitations than this is surely one for you otherwise you will have some questions when the end credits start rolling.
