This is one of the worst remakes ever. Shares almost nothing in common with the original and missed the point. The original Day of the Dead is an intelligent horror film dealing with the breakdown of order after the zombie apocalypse. How the survivors turn upon themselves leading to their own destruction. Classic George A. Romero zombie goodness.
The remake uses some of the character names from the original. A National Guard unit is sent to contain a Fast Moving Zombie (FMZ) outbreak. The guardsmen r all cliches and fail to be at all effective. The heroes leave the viewer wishing that these were the victims. After watching this film I understand exactly why it went direct to dvd. How anyone could mess up a remake to Day of the Dead this badly is mind staggering.

While this movie certainly isn't horrible, it's certainly not George Romero's Day of the Dead. Mostly bad, the gore effects are the only saving grace. I certainly expected more from Final Destination writer Jeffrey Reddick. Worth a watch, but certainly not really good.
