I've reviewed the thing for like three sites now. What did YOU think of it?

Scott, wanna link to some of your reviews?

I still haven't seen it yet myself, am looking forward... how would you compare it to Land of the Dead?

My son Kboy (age 6) watched the trailer with me, and he announced it "looks boring! Just a bunch of zombies!" He is determined not to see Diary of the Dead. He is lobbying for Beverly Hills Chihuahua instead. The horror, the horror....

I saw it in theaters a few months ago. I'd say Land of the Dead is better, but Diary of the Dead has The Amish Guy. He was harcore. :D *wonders if there are any Amish Guy t-shirts yet*

If the Amish guy had milk cows on his farm this could have been Dairy of the Dead.... too bad.

For me, George Romero hit the pinnacle of this genre that he created with "Dawn of the Dead" at the shopping mall.

My brother tied me up and made me watch Dan O'Bannon's "Return of the Living Dead", a brillant parody. Had he told me that it was Dan O'Bannon's film, I would have never resisted - I love his work with John Carpenter on "Dark Star". He does parody well.

And I have an embarrassing fetish for the "Resident Evil" series. I plead "Milla Jovovich" addiction. And the special effects are nice. Hey, gotta love a women who yells out "CROTCH SHOT" on her commentary track when she barely exposes the beaver for a second. And the last one led me to Collide, that best industrial goth band of this Neo-Century.

But, I have had my fill of zombies. I hide from them on electon day, too. And all during the Reagan era.

It is time for something new. What is Clive Barker doing these days?

My most favoritest zombie movie is Night of the Comet.

How long ago was this? I've been watching the movie (repeatedly, off and on) since childhood.

Pity I never watch commentary. It's usually insanely boring. D:

The Midnight Meat Train. I'm almost tempted (it is Barker), but I'm trying to swear off shock-horror.

--Night of the Comet IS good stuff. :D

You know, I was losing interest in seeing this, but I'd forgotten all about the Amish guy.

1979, when it first came out for the original "Dawn of the Dead". Is the 2004 remake worth seeing? I saw "Return of the Living Dead" in either 1986 or 1987 on VHS.

No, I think I will have too!

I keep forgetting that not everyone is in their 20s. XD

The "What about my needs!?" conversation has become one of my favorites of all movies.
