I adored the first film, so what went wrong here? Well for starters it's more of a remake with a few of the same characters only they made it a heck of a lot less awesome. This time some kids release that death reanimation gas by mistake and of course the graveyard nearby becomes full of zombies. They are yet again looking for brains and well there is quite a bit of brain eating. Then the town gets sealed off because of the security risk and they have to figure out how to deal with the problem (sound familiar?). This is very much comedy minded even moreso than the first film, it's just that the first was funnier maybe this was trying too hard? Then again if they were trying too hard wouldn't they have come up with a more original plot?
