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 »
This is not happening. These are not fucking walking corpses.
Hey man, this is fucking happening.
Call the freaking cops.
We have to baby.
Yeah, call the cops. When the dead walk, you gotta call the cops.

Just saw this at the World 3-D Film Expo and wasn't overly taken with this re-imagining of the original. If it weren't for the use of the 3-D and CGI this would be headed straight to the bargain DVD section of your local Walmart.
I really wanted to like this movie more than I did. It had lots going for it. A sold-out premier in high definition 3-D using the polarized glasses instead of the inferior red/blue glasses. They used special cameras as well as stedicam in shooting the entire movie. So, it looked as good as it was going to get.
But...geeking out is just not enough to carry an entire movie...
The script was clunky with some odd use of dated language mixed with present day dialog. A couple mis-castings didn't help matters much either.
And, it just wasn't creepy or scary...at all...
