Dreadful on all counts. The parts that weren't horribly done were merely dull.

This film suffered from a complete lack of the following elements emblematic of enjoyable horror:

- Innovative ways of killing teenagers
- Dramatic tension
- Shocking "jump" moments that later turn out hilarious
- Sympathetic characters
- Subtle social satire (Romero spoiled me)
- Good one-liners
- Boobies

This kind of movie is why people hate horror movies. Gore for the sake only of gore, and nothing else going on. Avoid at all costs.

But at least I didn't have to go see "Employee of the Month" for work this week.



If I store my shaving cream in my dresser, my roommate grows a beard. Odd.

I really liked the way this film was shot. I thought it was a inventive way to have the audience along for the ride. The stop-motion, the occasional sub-title... I was very surprised how much I liked it...
