Diary of the Dead

Last weekend I saw George Romero's new zombie movie for sale on DVD, so I picked up a copy.

For one thing, it's shot in first-person style, ala Blair Witch or Cloverfield. So if you can handle those, you can handle this as well.

This one's a reboot of Romero's zombie movies, it takes place when the outbreak begins. But now everyone's got cell phones, camcorders, and internet access.

It's a bit strange, especially one of the characters who's motivation seemed to be how popular he could become on the web. Then again, this is no stranger than any other horror film.

Bottom line, it's another great Romero zombie fest, fits right in with his other films. The only thing this one lacked was Land of the Dead's budget and promotion.
