Barbara (Gemma Atkinson) is visiting the cemetery with brother Johnny to visit their father's grave, when an unexpected traumatic event forces her to run to the safety of a nearby farmhouse... See full summary »
Barb and her brother Johnny travel to the country for the funeral services of their aunt, but they arrive late and drive direct to the cemetery. They see the location empty, but sooner they are attacked by zombies. Johnny escapes in his car leaving Barb alone, but she is rescued by the drug dealer and college student Ben. He drives his motorcycle to the Cooper farm, and the patriarch Henry Cooper does not give credit to Barb. When the farmhouse is under siege of a group of flesh-eaters zombies, the local mortician Gerald Tovar Jr. arrives and tells a scary story about the origin of the zombies. Written by

When Barbara tries to call Johnny on his cell phone and she gets his voicemail, she keeps begging for him to pick up the phone. Voicemail is not like an answering machine. You don't hear the person's voice while they are recording the message, so it would make no sense for her to keep asking him to pick up. See more »

Call the freakin' cops.
We have to baby.
[stunned, heading for the phone]
Yeah. Right. When the dead start to walk, you gotta call the cops.

The background for the end credits is the same b&w version of the road from the original Night of the Living Dead that is shown at the beginning. Except that as the credits are rolling to an end, what seems to be the first zombie from the original appears, getting closer and closer to the foreground. At the very last instant, an image of the present film's heroine, looking scared, flashes on screen in the foreground. See more »
I'm sorry, but I cannot really summarize my feelings more than to say that I was ready for this to be sort of bad, you know, in a so bad that it's hilariously funny sort of way, but I never knew that a movie could loop its way around again to just plain bad. And just to let you know, this is not the only zombie movie, or "remake" of a zombie movie that I've seen. --I guess I was just spoiled by the leetness of "Dawn of the Dead."
This movie IS a "remake" true, but the effects were so ill done, that except for times the actors were using something like a cellphone in a scene, you could have sworn this was made at the same time as the original. Which, seriously is not necessarily THAT bad, but really, come on... The "3D" could have been way more effectively utilized as well. Truly, if you KNOW you are making it 3D, you could do way cooler, and way more terrifying things than, "Ooh look! A Doobie!". *sigh*
But the "horrifying" zombies were the absolute least of this thing's problems. Oh yes, I AM speaking of the acting. Let me just first say, I think I lost about one IQ point per minute (maybe second) of watching these people try to act. Now, that's not that I'm saying that I thought this was supposed to be an Oscar worthy film. When I walked in, I knew I wasn't going to be enlightened. But dang! The crappy delivery of the "witty" lines that the script offered was the only thing in the whole movie that was worthy enough to make me gasp in horror. COME ON PEOPLE!! Absolutely everyone watching has fairly low expectations of you and yet you decide your mission in life is to lower them even further?!?! There was not ONE person in the entire cast (including the lead actress) that you could EVER feel for enough to root for THEM against the zombies. I myself, was cheering for the zombies. If they could have eaten everyone in the first 15 minutes, THAT would have been worthwhile.
I'm not going to say more because no more is needed. It was bad and that is it.
You can hate the review, or agree with everything. I don't truly care. I just wrote this because I needed somewhere to vent. I had already used up my boyfriend, who by the way agrees with me.
