So I own the first film Night of the Living Dead 3D on DVD. I bought it without seeing it. Not a BAD movie, not great, just decent in my opinion. Very glad it had d Haig in it. Other than that, let's start the review:
Night of the Living Dead 3D: Reanimation
First problem of mine, Gerald Tover Jr. is d Haig in the first. In this prequel it's Andrew Divoff. I'm sorry to say but Divoff is NOT d. If they couldn't have gotten d, the movie should not have been made. In my opinion, d Haig is the only reason why I watched the first movie, heard about this lenng without Haig, lost interest, yet I held on and watched.
Divoff is a good actor, he made light out of a horrible script and horrible acting out of everyone else. Although i felt the acting was believable if you are into pot-smoking half-assed comedies. I for one indulge myself from time to time in the genre. However Divoff played the character very dull and inactive. His brother
It's interesting that they mention "shamblers or sprinters"
... "Romero zombies...." so it kind of hints that in this zombie universe, our zombie movies are well known. That is an intersting twist. From my knowledge its the first film that recognizes modern cinema and the existence of different zombie types. And the mention of all major zombie outbreaks in movies definitely tried to make this movie interesting...but everything else made it horrid. If this was done in a different movie with a budget and good actors i'd appreciate it more.
Altogether the acting wasn't so bad. It was spotty here and there. Not great not horrible, just so so. Makeup effects were good; As a makeup fx artist i would have to say that i have seen worse and better, but budget always dictates. CGI was implemented decently, again, not good or great. I wouldn't say poorly either. Plot stayed with what was mention in NotLD3D ... again i wish d Haig was abound for it.
Not to shabby, range of 0-5 I would give it a 2 and 3/4.The addition of a female necrophiliac is also interesting. Btw she's cute and should have no problems getting a living member.
