Night Of The Living Dead (1990)

So it must have been hard remaking one of the most intense horror films of all time. The story is pretty much the same, a group of people get trapped inside a farmhouse where zombies try to break in and eat their brains! The biggest difference is well it's in color and the effects are perhaps a little better plus it's not as claustrophobic feeling. The character of Barbara here is less obnoxious and less in the lead which is a good thing. The worst part was changing the ending (which was potentially the best part of the original). Although this does do some things right, it doesn't come near matching the original. Still worth a view to those who want to see this updated a bit, it definitely could have been much worse!
