Dawn of the Living Dead from beyondthegore
27 March 2012 | by beyondthegoreSee all my reviews

Sometimes I would deem a film too bad that it's actually good. This can be because its that bad its funny therefore worth a single watch but this film is actually THAT bad I'm willing to ruin every single "highlight" of this film to get my point across as I am confident by the end of this review you will not be watching it any time soon.

Then there are the effects. My word I have seen better graphics come from my buttocks. Usually sending ripples through my trousers as the gas immitions tear through the atmosphere. Everybody knows what the sun looks like yes? The big yellow thing up in the sky, but I think the director is taking us for a ride here because I'm pretty sure the sun they keep showing me has been made in Microsoft Paint. In fact I think the five suns they keep showing me are made in MS Paint. In fact I think all of the graphics were made in MS Paint. I'm sorry but I just couldn't humour the effects used in this film. Zombies fading in to bushes, scenery fading away like it was never there, it was all awful. The gore/blood was bearable but nothing spectacular, it looked like blood which is always good, body parts being pulled out of victims also looked OK, but it's used it many other films and 10.2million times better.
