Diary of the Dead

It’s hard to believe that almost 40 years ago, George Romero made the cult classic Night of the Living Dead and some of the other great installments that would follow. I got to give it to the guy, I’m impressed that he’s still dishing out these zombie movies after all this time, but after viewing his latest work Diary of the Dead, I can’t help but feel ultimately disappointed.

Here we have Romero offering us a modern day reboot of the series shot on handheld cameras. What starts with a group of college students making a horror flick soon turns into a real horror movie as the dead start to come back to life to feed on the living. Right off the bat I don’t really care for the concept, handheld cameras didn’t really add much to the experience and unlike Cloverfield I couldn’t find myself liking our main protagonist (by which I mean the cameraman) at all. The acting was melodramatic and cheesy and the cliches were non-stop. “Ha Ha their teacher is a British alcoholic who was in the war and is good with a bow and arrow” I couldn’t believe he actually reminisced about “The War” They used that corny gimmick in From Dusk Till Dawn as a joke for god’s sake.

Though I must admit Diary does have it’s moments, there is a pretty cool Amish guy with dynamite and some of the gore is entertaining, so it wasn’t a complete failure. What’s Diary of the Dead’s biggest problem? It’s just boring, the characters don’t really do much of anything or have any depth. Romero’s dialogue is dry and tiresome and really seems to be “Out of touch” with today’s modern youth. This wasn’t quite as bad as anything you’d see on the Sci-Fi Channel but not quite worthy of the big screen. I just hope Romero has got another good horror movie in him before he calls it quits.
