if you’ve seen the previous four films in the “dead” series (night of the living dead, dawn of the dead, day of the dead, land of the dead) then you may as well watch this one too. it was about as good as land of the dead, which is to say it’s not that great. the acting is subpar and the storyline doesn’t do anything you haven’t already seen from the dead films or their imitators. the social commentary in this film extends to the media and brings in the youtube generation, but that’s the only reason that this film is notable. it is remarkable that romero has been doing this since the 60s and has affected a few different generations with these films.
