Diary of the Dead


USA 2007, 95 minutes
Dir. George Romero
Genres: Horror / Walking Dead


Aroview: Genre-king Romero's latest sojourn puts the digital camera in the hands of a group of film-school wannabes who, while shooting their own DIY gore-fest, discover real horror in the form of the brain-eating undead.

Romero attempts to turn the evolution of his brilliant NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD on its head mock-horror-mentary style, injecting every line with clever, post-modern self-awareness. This works very well from an analytical point of view, however all the nods and winks sacrifice a vital scare factor. Perhaps it is Romero's intention to finally bury his zombies once and for all in this piece that feels more essay than cinema.
