Trivia

The opening credits includes a montage detailing the zombie outbreak leading up to the events of this film, with black and white footage and radio broadcasts depicting the infection's spread over the Earth. Some of the images come from George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968) portraying the beginning of the outbreak. Romero wanted to use more footage from the other two films of the series up to that point, Dawn of the Dead (1978), and Day of the Dead (1985), but was unable to due to complications with the rights of those films. This is because each of his zombie films have been produced by different studios. This can also be seen in the credits for Tom Savini's cameo in the film. He is the undead version of the character he portrayed in Dawn of the Dead (1978), named "Blades", but he could only be credited in this film as "Machete Zombie". See more »

Quotes

Kaufman: [Kaufman gets in his private underground limo, while his driver opens the garage door] Careful when you open that door.
[Big Daddy appears, and attempts to get into the limo. His driver sees this, and runs out the garage door, leaving Kaufman in the limo]
Kaufman: Get back here, you bastard! You've got the fucking keys!

I am not sure, what do you think?
31 December 2005 | by simon.conderSee all my reviews

Sadly I missed Land of the Dead at cinemas so I have been gagging to watch it on DVD. I did that finally last night.

I am not sure if this is a slow burn, really grow on you film or just something that is not really good enough. Its easy in some ways to look at Day OTD though younger eyes when I first saw it. But with Land, it kind of felt not right somehow.

I did like that fact that Big G has moved the genre on with the dead getting kind of smart but I am thinking that it did not have that nasty edge of the older films. Bt maybe that is the point.

What do you think?
