Yeah, I hope this is good.

Dennis Hopper in it has got to be good for some fun.

I'd love to see some Christopher Walken-type interchanges with a zombie, too. "You...are gonna eat...WHOSE face?"

BUT, what they got away with, gore-wise, was absolutely incredible. My buddy and I were laughing with glee through the entire flick at all of the violence. Let me put all doubts to rest: This IS a George A Romero zombie film. This is NOT a rip-off...it's the real deal. Head shots, decapitations, zombie biting people with the typical fleshy ripping...intestines...the works. I was SHOCKED at the amount of gore they managed to get into the film. I spoke with the Production Manager after wards, and he assured me that the gore in the film is NOTHING compared to what's going to be on the DVD.

being part of the pittsburgh film community (such as it is), i actually got an invite to the pgh premeire, but it was more BB's than i wanted to spend on watching a zombie movie and pretending i was cool. but, from what i hear, it was pretty cool and a bunch of celebrity types were there

The gore in Romero movies is actually hard for me to take. I like the scare more than the gross, and he can be pretty ingenious. I think it may be just as hard for me to stomach a Romero movie as it ever was, even though I'm more used to the gore now than I was when Dawn of the Dead came out.

I go to bed at 8am and usually go back to work at 7pm -

if I do what I did yesterday and last week, and wake up at noon or 1pm, I'm gonna catch an afternoon showing before going to work -

It'll be the first one I've actually seen in the theater, not counting the DOTD remake -

Ok day of the dead I can see how you had a problem.

But did you have problems with Dawn, Night, and the recent remake?

I saw Night when I was a little kid, so that definitely grossed me out. I saw it again when I was older and it wasn't so bad. Then I saw the one in the shopping center -- Dawn? -- and that was pretty stomach turning.

Aside from that I saw the remake in the shopping center and wasn't grossed out. I saw that a bunch of times, even bought it, and really liked it. Same with 28 Days Later.

Romero seems to specialize in slapping guts all over the camera lens though, really revels in extending it on and on unlike those other movies. I don't usually get grossed out, but Romero can do it to me sometimes.
