Ok here’s the deal. Last night I finally decided to give George Romero’s “Survival Of The Dead” a chance as it was just released on dvd. You hear that? I finally decided to give the NEW Romero Zombie flick a chance! Ten years ago saying that would have meant I was completely crazy as imagining a new zombie movie from him back then being released would have been a gift from god. I was less than impressed with his last two movie quite honestly and this one seals the deal for me for good. I just don’t give a shit about new Romero movies. I actually got more enjoyment from the latest Direct to dvd Kevin Costner horror movie!
I can tell you honestly I didn’t even finish the movie. I am putting my foot down and refusing to watch anymore zombie movies with shitty cg bood and gore. Especially one made by George. Believe me this one’s got cg gore galore-it’s effects look like they came straight out of the first Resident Evil game! Seriously the effects in this movie are practically unwatchable. Tom Savini must cringe at this bullshit. Don’t people get it that cg gore and blood looks like shit? Especially George Fucking Romero?! I am a true horror fan and because of that alone I can finally say I’m done. Who knows though at this point-maybe I’m just zombie’d out too? Thinking that has me hoping The Walking Dead tv series renews my interest…
Secondly I just saw an image from the upcoming Fright Night remake over at Shock Til You Drop this morning too. It’s from teaser poster and It’s a picture of the new Peter Vincent and boy does he look like a TOTAL douche bag!!
I’m pretty sure this movie is going to seriusly blow as they seem to have a hard time making anything look remake wise look remotely cool anymore and with the Twilight phenomenon going on STILL all vampire movies are pretty much guaranteed to suck. I’m sorry but Fright Night was one of the BEST vamp movies ever made-It just really bums me out to see this Chris Angel looking version of Peter Vincent. Roddy Mcdowell had some serious charm in that role, and back then they were’nt concerned with trying to make him look all sexy or like he walked out of an Axe Body Spray commercial.
It also scares me to think of how bad the big vampire mouth of Charlie Brewster’s girlfriend is going to look when it’s all cg’d and shitty looking in the upcoming movie…oh well at least they can never take the original away from us, they can only tarnish it’s good name….
