Night of the Living Dead

Night of the Living Dead ★★★★

Hooptober Part VIII Film #17

This remake has no business being so good. Savini plays an excellent cover of his favorite song and adds some flourishes. Tony Todd and Patricia Tallman are excellent in their retooled roles as Ben and Barbara. What’s changed works in its favor, especially the last 30 minutes. Biggest complaint is some of the more whack 90s synth tones, but that’s pretty minor. Surprised how much I dug this!
