That depends on your definition of sequel. The events of this film take place alongside the events in Night of the Living Dead (1968) (even though the new film is set in 2008). What's certain is that Diary of the Dead is the fifth film in George Romero's series.
Like The Blair Witch Project (1999), this film is shot entirely by in-universe cameras (either hand-held video cameras or surveillance cameras); and what we see had been shot by the characters in the film. Some people are calling it Cloverfield with zombies. Others compare it to [Rec] and the PS2 survival horror game Michigan.

Anyone who dies comes back as a zombie, unless his brain is destroyed. It doesn't matter if the dead person had suffered a gunshot wound, a car accident, a paper cut: anyone who dies with an intact brain will reanimate a short while later.
