Diary of the Dead (2007)

Comment
This one has received mix reviews; generally people place this above or below land depending on their stance.

The following was my initial reaction:

At first, I really thought it was going to be ace... the intro and the uncut news reporter 'resurrection' scene was really great. However, I then went from real enjoyment to annoyance when that shite voice over kicked and the shit editing started. I know its 'purposely' done, but I hated the voice over and as mentioned the acting was really that strong for essentially a first person view. The film however picked up loads as it went along; the killings and the gore was top notch, some of the story was a bit shakey, but I thought it was decently paced. Unfortunately the lousy bits, which are stylistically done let the film down... I did not enjoy the 'film within a film' nature.

I think with all the footage available this could be recut; maybe remove the voice over, drop some of the alternative edits.

This could have and should have been so much better, I mean this could have been really good... the chase scenes in the first person perspective I really enjoyed; the wandering hordes, the gore and any group scene were really top notch. However, once again, the downs were quite significant downs.

Unlike Land, I liked this on the first viewing. However, I've recently bought and watched Land of the Dead on HD-DVD and really appreciated it a lot more, I enjoyed the set pieces and thought it was entertaining. However, I think I prefer Diary to Land... I just think it needs re-editing and hope that Romero allows this to happen.
