George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead

Glutes are the finest things to be called. Unless you're being called morbidly obese woman glutes. However, Lara Croft glutes from her newest Tomb Raider game = :up:

And Land of the Dead ****ing rocked. But Dawn still rules all.

He should've stopped after he made the cinematic waste that was Land of the Dead, or whatever it was called.


Too true. Me and my brother worked ourselves up so much for this movie only to walk out of the theatres utterly depressed.
 
Sounds good. I liked Land of the Dead, it was better than the remake of Dawn of the Dead imo; But not the original.

Day of the Dead got the same type of reception. Thankfully, people revisited it years later and found that they really enjoyed it.

People disliked Day because it wasn't neccesarily George's film, apparently the movie he set out to make was much bigger, unfortunately his budget wasn't.
I like it though, not as much as dawn, but I like it.

And this movie sounds a little ehhh (and that's coming from a HUGE zombie/Romero fan)
But i'll see it.
 
I love the original Night Of The Living Dead to... well, death... But this neverending "of the dead" thing... What´s next, Group Therapy Of The Dead, Spa Of The Dead, Bar Mitzvah Of The Dead?
 
Land of the Dead was sooooooooo disappointing that unless there's good reviews I'm passing this one.

Besides, shouldnt this be like County of the Dead or something?
 
There've been 4 "of the dead" movies in 40 years. I wouldn't say he's flooding the industry with it. I'm just glad he's not limiting himself to the trilogy gimmick. If there's more to tell, tell it.

Just so you know, Romero is only responsible for 4, maybe 5 of the Dead movies.

Night
Dawn
Day
Night remake (He participated in the crew)
Land

All the other Dead movies have nothing to do with Romero officially.
Land wasn't a dissappointment. People were expecting a zombie gorefest but they forget that Romero focuses on the story and people in the movie, not the zombies.
 
I am so excited to see this. It sounds awesome. Blairwitch+zombies+Romero=Kickass
 
I'm a sucker for anything Romero. Even if its bad, its good enough for me. Plus I've wasted money on 10 x's more popular movies that suck 10 x's worse than anything Romero has ever done.

I was actually hoping that Sci-Fi would give him a break, like Stan Lee, and let him do a Walking Dead series.

If Romero participated in a Walking Dead TV series, I'd keel over and die of happiness.
 
Land of the dead was ***in awesome..... he redifined it all.

How could Sci-Fi not pick up on something like that? Just have some mild gore and put it on past 10 PM. It could be a huge hit.
 
Im all 'Zombied out' at the moment... Damn Dead Rising :cmad:
 
Hmm, I remember Romero mumbling something this happening before/at the same with Night, but it ain't 60's in the trailer. Well, it looked interesting enough for me anyway. And I digged Day and Land too.
 
Come to think of it, they're all kinda timeless aren't they?
 
The only thing that bothers me about this film is that the general public (the ones not steeped in Romero-lore) are going to quickly write this off as a Cloverfield knock off. And with all the security surrounding Cloverfield, I don't think anyone knew it was going to be all home video footage until Diary of the Dead was already shot.

True, I've already found cases of people shoving this aside, because they consider it a Cloverfield knock off. :csad:

I for one, shall watch this. Oh, and if The Walking Dead did ever become a series, I could die happily :up:
 
Cloverfield similarities aside, this looks just plain bad.
