Nice tweaks and character voices, rotten CGI
14 November 2015 | by (Novelist of The Final Version) – See all my reviews

The dead have come back to life and a group of survivors take shelter in a city apartment building.

I must admit was was really looking forward to the retelling of a classic, Night of the Living Dead: Darkest Dawn, (formally Night of the Living Dead: Origins) especially given the horror talent involved. Directed by Krisztian Majdik, Zebediah De Soto their animated CGI effort echoes the likes of the Resident Evil Damnation and Resident Evil: Degeneration but visually doesn't meet their standard.

What it lacks with the video game like presentation it makes up for with its great voice characterisations. There's the talent and eerie animated likeness of horror favourites Tony Todd, Bill Moseley (both reprising their characters from the 1990 remake) , Danielle Harris (Halloween IV & V), Joseph Pilato (Day of the Dead) and character actor Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan).

Following the 1968's narrative there's a few interesting story tweaks that are welcomed on the refreshing contemporary city set backdrop. With countless rip offs and cash-ins already made, fans who like original may be pleased, as this is arguably one of the better adaptations since Savini's 1990 remake.

While the visual graphic aesthetics aren't too hot, quite frankly a little disappointing (and another remake is debatably unnecessary) the voice work and story changes make it worth a viewing. For zombie completist fans.
