Scarier Than Zombies

The Dawn of the Dead remake was awesome. It featured more cringe-inducing gore, humor, and power tool accidents than I was expecting. Anyone who claims it stinks because it lacks the social commentary vision of the original is a pompous ass who should be ignored for the rest of his life.

If you didn’t see the original, its social commentary consisted of zombies wandering the mall and “shopping” when they weren’t eating people, not exactly the most insightful subtext in a film.

But the scariest moment came before the movie even started, when the trailer for this abomination started. What’s really sad is that its director’s prior movie experience is primarily in casting extras.
