A Few Changes But Some Ugly CGI
19 February 2018 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Night of the Living Dead: Darkest Dawn (2015)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

This here is an animated remake of the George A. Romero classic. This time the setting has been moved from a farmhouse in Pennsylvania to an apartment in New York City where Barbara (Danielle Harris), Ben (Tony Todd) and others lock themselves in and try to survive the night.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: DARKEST DAWN isn't the worst remake that has happened but at the same time there are some major issues with it that keep it from being more entertaining. I will at least say that I give the filmmakers credit for at least trying to change a few things up including the location. I thought having the action in New York City was a major plus and especially some of the scenes on Time Square. There were a few more changes to the familiar story, which was nice to have.

With that said, there are certainly a lot more flaws than good moments here. One major issue is that the CGI animation just looks really bad. This looks like a low-budget video game and some of the images are just downright ugly including the look of Ben who seems like a cross between a mummy and a zombie. The vocal performances are decent for the most part but Joseph Pilato (DAY OF THE DEAD) is horrid as Harry as he does nothing but scream the entire time (sound familiar?).

I guess if you're a horror nut like me who wants to watch every new "version" of the Romero film then you'll want to check this out. Most people, however, should just go back and watch the original film and leave this one alone.
