Did I like or dislike Day of the Dead (DotD)? Jury’s still out.

I want to like it really. I’m still trying to. I think I’ll end up growing fond of it. But I doubt it would change what is to follow.

I’m going to try and look at DotD outside its “prequels” (Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead). I’m not comparing them at this point, just trying to get a feel for it as a movie as well as a zombie/horror movie.

I found DotD amusing. But it didn’t go much farther than this. It didn’t shock me, it didn’t even got me thinking. And it surely didn’t scare me.
