Great Idea But Fell Short
7 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of horror fans find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role playing game that pays homage to a classic horror film.

I like the idea they were going for here -- a group of people recreating "Night of the Living Dead". With all the sequels, remakes, and ripoffs, I am a bit wary of anything related to NoTLD these days. But I really think this idea had merit.

However, I am not sure if it succeeded. At times, it seemed to drag, and I really disliked the role played by Sid Haig. Haig, being a well-known horror icon, should probably have played himself at the convention. In fact, for the film to make complete sense, the role would have had to be George Romero playing George Romero. I assume they know this and simply could not get him.
