George A. Romero’s “Day of the Dead” is geared up for a remake. The original horror classic released in 1985. Hector Hernandez Vicens is set to direct the remake, which is described as a post-apocalyptic tale that:
“Follows a former medical student tormented by a dark figure from her past, who happens to be a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her.”
“Day of the Dead” (1985) Synopsis
Zombies rule the world, except for a small group of scientists and military personnel who reside in an underground bunker in Florida. The scientists are using the undead in gruesome experiments; much to the chagrin of the military. Finally the military finds that their men have been used in the scientists’ experiments, and banish the scientists to the caves that house the Living Dead. Unfortunately, the zombies from above ground have made their way into the bunker.
“Day of the Dead” spawned a remake in 2008, directed by Steve Miner, and it was noted as one of the worst remakes of all time. This poses the question: “Why should another attempt be made after a failed remake?” One thing that caught my attention with the 2008 remake; Nick Cannon. It’s been proven that public figures, such as Nick Cannon do not make the best of actors, especially in horror movies. Horror movies that star public figures that do not specialize in acting, usually turn out rushed, cheesy, and poor quality.
On the bright side, this new “Day of the Dead” remake is taking a different path, so maybe that will give it due justice after a terrible first attempt.
