The trailer sucks terribly, unfortunately. It looks like zombies are a subplot or something, plus they are fast and strong; running and JUMPING (!) is all they do there. Way to fuck up the genre.
I love Day of The Dead for it’s NOT action-based, it’s an analysis of the zombie situation and zombies themselves, it reveals much more than previously known. They don’t scare you by how they look (they look just like humans, more or less injured, unlike most zombie flicks), they scare you with their masses, by how they come slowly but relentlessly and there’s no stopping them. It’s so goddamn original in the way that you can kill zombies, evade them (just walk away), make fun of them, but they will still eventually take over, no matter what you do.
The original trilogy was dark and gloomy, rather depressing. The dead rising was a political problem, discussed on TV, radio and stuff, and the whole concept carries a message. But this remake promises nothing of the original, with its vast budged it sadly looks like it’s gonna be an action-packed unscary piece of shit. Such a shame.
