Rotten Tomatoes: 76% – Gruesome, but fun remake

My rating: ****

My assessment (the first 101 words at least): This is the first zombie movie I’ve ever seen, and I enjoyed it fairly well. I didn’t find the gore factor to be unbearable, though that might be because Netflix provided the R rated version, and not anything more stomach churning. I realize that there is a great variety of Zombie films from comedy to action to horror and dramatic. This film seemed to try to combine all of those differing genres to just make an entertaining zombie movie. The zombie genre is entertaining, though I don’t think I’ll be going on a zombie film spree anytime soon. Pretty good film.
