Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006) Reviewed

More assholes insist on taking a big shit on the legacy of Romero’s NotLD simply because it’s bungled rights and public-domain status mean they can. Despite impressive 3-D effects that transfer surprisingly well to DVD, this unforgivable, opportunistic abhorration of cynical check-cashing barely registers as a zombie movie at all. Employing the loosest interpretation of it’s namesake to date, this sleepwalks from one nonsensical scene to the next with a script that seems like it must have been written during filming. Though there may be something to be said for being handed a smoldering joint in 3 dimensions, it’s not enough giddy gimmickery to make it worthy of even a second of your time. Sid Haig, as the kooky mortician at the center of the second half, does what he can.
