I was reluctant to see this movie based on the underwhelming response
it has received. Plus, the whole movie-in-movie/home-movies/POV idea
has been rather overused recently. Fortunately, this one doesn't have
the homemovie cheap look.
However, Romero delivers an outstanding film that has everything you
could want in a Romero zombie movie: violence, gore, biting social
commentary, irony and multiple levels, humor.
A female relates how she decided to make public the documentary her
boyfriend created and gave his life for. It documents the event of the
dead coming back to life. No explanation is given why this is
happening. But it is nationwide. People get bitten by a zombie and in
turn become a zombie minutes later. The zombies are slow, go after the
living, and die only if shot in the head.
Inititally, we meet the couple on the set of a film student project- a
mummy movie. The filming is taking place in the woods and there we meet
the director and his girlfriend, the actor who plays the mummy, the
damsel in distress, an angry make-up artist, the professor- who of
course has to have an English accent, and a geek who is in charge of
equipment, and 2 other girls. On the radio they hear about the events
unfolding. 2 characters decide to leave for a remote mansion. The rest
get in an RV and head somewhere. They start encountering zombies and
one girl is shot. This takes them to a hospital where they run into
more zombies. From there they end up in Amish country in one of the
funniest scenes. Back on the road they are ambushed by a gang of blacks
who are looting everything they can. From them they get supplies to
head back home. First they go to the narrator's house and finally they
decide to meet up with the couple who went to the mansion, where things
come to an end.
During all these events there are continually chased and attacked by
zombies. And our filmmaker is filming it all. Sometimes others will
pick up a camera as well. His commitment to recording the events is
absolute in spite of his girlfriend's protests. Regardless of the human
drama, the life-or-death situations unfolding, he will only record and
not get involved. Romero here accurately criticizes our society that
puts entertainment before all else. Like any cameraman of any news
station, these people will film, take pictures of whatever horrible
situation is unfolding but never offer help. Their role of recording
history puts them on a higher plane. Plus, if they in any way did
something to alleviate the misery, that would put and end to the flow
This is just one of the many fascinating insights that Romero offers.
This movie doesn't have an extended peaceful intro, and some violent
climax. It has a great pace. Things start out brutally pretty early on
and we have an ebb and flow of bursts of zombie attacks and short
breaks of intelligent conversation and analysis.
The only negatives I can think of is the use of CGI blood and gore,
which never looks real. Otherwise this movie has it all, creative death
scenes for the horror fans and a smart script that makes this movie
stand out above all horror movies released recently. This movie
deserved a theatrical release..

i found this one funny.
firegazer watch Abbott And Costello Meet The Killer, Boris Karloff movie
Diary of the Dead: After Land Of The Dead, a great movie that felt buried beneath a huge budget and massive studio interference, it's great to see Romero returning to his indie roots. Diary is entirely his own movie, and he gets the tone perfect. The campy scares and the gross-out gore explosions are all present, and will delight fan boys to no end. (They sure got some big laughs out of me.) But what Romero does best is suddenly switch from fun to disturbing when you least expect it. The best moments of Diary come when the gory thrill ride comes screeching to a halt and everything suddenly becomes all too relatable, entirely too real. These are the moments that will stick with you after the gory brain-splatter effects have lost their novelty..

While filming a horror movie of mummy in a forest, the students and their professor of the University of Pittsburgh hear on the TV the news that the dead are awaking and walking. Ridley and Francine decide to leave the group, while Jason heads to the dormitory of his girlfriend Debra Monahan. She does not succeed in contacting her family and they travel in Mary's van to the house of Debra's parents in Scranton, Pennsylvania. While driving her van, Mary sees a car accident and runs over a highway patrolman and three other zombies trying to escape from them. Later the religious Mary is depressed, questioning whether the victims where really dead, and tries to commit suicide, shooting herself with a pistol. Her friends take her to a hospital where they realize that the dead are indeed awaking and walking and they need to fight to survive while traveling to Debra's parents house. .

My least favourite of the series
I never thought i would say this about a Romero zombie film but i was
really disappointed by this one and in my opinion it's the worst one of
the series. The zombie attacks are few and far between and when they do
happen they're over so quickly that there's no time for any
anticipation or fear to build up. There's hardly any gore. Anybody
wanting lots of scenes of people being eaten by zombies had better stay
away from this one. The thing that irritated me most and it's probably
why i wouldn't bother watching the film again is the fact that when a
character is being attacked hardly any of the group goes to help. They
all either stand there or are too obsessed with filming it on their
camcorders. OK i know it's only a film but if a friend of mine was
being attacked by one of the living dead i would drop the camera and go
and HELP. The female lead Deb was a stroppy cow who needed a good slap
and Jason was a waste of space. I kept hoping somebody would smash the
camera over his head and put him out of his misery. None of the
characters were likable and the only interesting ones, for example
Samuel, aren't in the movie long enough. I just didn't care what
happened to any of them and i wasn't interested in what any of them had
to say. That plus the fact that there is hardly any action meant that i
found the film dull. It's well made but i wouldn't recommend it..
