I was honestly not nearly as offended by this in the end as I expected. Clearly, I would prefer it had been made by Romero or at least someone involved in the original series of zombie flicks (Tom Savini, perhaps), or not at all. Clearly, the gore effects simply aren’t comparable to anything in Romero’s originals. But, I don’t know … it somehow flows for me, it doesn’t remotely threaten the integrity of the official releases, and it actually tries to do its own thing. Why they thought it necessary to use the Day of the Dead brand is anyone’s guess, except of course the monitary value of it. The abrupt ending is a little weird, too. But compared to what I expected, this was almost a pleasant surprise.
