Warning! The population of a small town in Colorado seems to have been infected by a virus with unknown origin. The flu like symptoms usually consist of lethargy, cold sweats, nausea, discomfort, intense headaches and a slight discolouring to their complexion. Unfortunately this is usually followed by a sudden urge to savagely rip the limbs from any living creature that might stand in their way whilst chewing on their bones, sucking out their brains and chewing on their flesh. An elite, cold bloodied and tenacious military force has been sent in to clean up the mess. But where as some residents are more than willing to spend the rest of their short lives in quarantine a small group of survivors escape and head towards an uncertain demise unaware of the eyeball chomping, gut splurting nightmare that awaits them.
A dumb and pointless remake.

I quite liked Zack Snyder's 2004 remake of 'Dawn Of The Dead' and had hopes that the remake of 'Day Of The Dead' would be just as a enjoyable. I was wrong, aside from taking on the title of George A. Romero's 1985 original film and the vague idea that some zombies original personalities can remain after theie transformation, this is a more or less a completely different film. There is barely any plotline, moronic dialogue, average acting and some really poor direction. There are some really naff 80's style slow motion action scenes and to make some scenes look more manic the footage is speeded up which aside from looking really artificial reminded me of a zombie version of the end credits from the Benny Hill show. As a remake of a classic 80's horror film it's hugely inferior to the original and as a zombie film in it's own right it brings absolutely nothing to the genre and is nothing more than second rate 99p bargain bin fodder. If you're looking for a decent modern zombie movie check out the brilliantly trashy 'Planet Terror' the 2004 remake of 'Dawn Of The Dead' or the more light hearted 'Zombieland'.
