Diary of the Dead review

Well, George A. Romero brings us another zombie installment and i just watched it. And it's fucking brilliant. The style of filming is a lot like amature home camera films which creates the 'diary' effect of the movie, but it is also edited to make it into more of a linear plot with music and transitions. There is a real variety of scenes which are extremely entertaining; some are tense and emotional whereas others are gory and quite amusing. It is great to see how different characters react to the situation around them, and i think this is what sets this piece apart from other zombie movies. Of course I am not about to say it is better than Night of the Living Dead, but for me it comes very close. 8/10.
