George A. Romero
If you are a George A. Romero fan, and also love watching
youtube videos, this movie is for you. Starts out as a
bunch of college kids are making a mummy movie with there
professor in the woods. They stop shooting after someone
alerts them to news on the radio. You get to hear the
old Night of the Living Dead radio recording. "Medical
authorities in Cumberland have concluded that in all cases,
the killers are eating the flesh of the people they murder."
So they all decide to get out of the woods and go home.
While Jason records everything, if anyone will survive
to even watch it. We the viewers watch basically through
Jason's viewfinder. Reminded me a bit of cloverfield.
I think Romero did a better job at it.
It's a good idea to capture different generations and
make a series grow. I do hope Romero makes many more zombie
movies. His craft make's them enjoyable to watch and rewatch.
Even though this movie was low budget, it still had Romero
class to it.
Back to the story! Everywhere this small group goes,
someone ends up bitten or dead. Always a good idea to
stay put, with supplies of coarse. Greatest part of the
movie is when the crazy deaf amish guy throws explosives
at the horde of zombies they they blow up into zombie
pieces. Never thought i'd see that in a zombie movie.
Sadly the crazy amish guy doesn't make it out. The rest
escape, and goto the house of one of the actors from the
film. Ridley was the star, who played the mummy, a rich
kid with a huge mansion. In the back yard of this house,
he kept zombies in a pool, they were moving around, pretty
Ridley was bit, and soon he became a zombie and once
again someone dies and they all hide in the safe room.
Mansions have safe rooms, everyone knows that. Won't say
any more about this movie, you will have to see it yourself.
But one additional note, i've read a few other reviews
for this movie and people gave romero crap, this movie
was good, fun zombie movie with surprises. Critics know
