    Horrible, horrible movie. Extremely predictable, cardboard characters, tired plot, stupidity galore. Maybe this crap was scary in the 70's, but it ain't now so what's the point of remaking it?

    Basically, go see this if you have the desire to spend money watching the same movie you've seen dozens of times.

    Sucked. Reminded me of a poorly remade 2010 version of night of the living dead.

    The film wastes little time building up the initial outbreak of madness, and then shaking the social structure shows how the city is blurred speed daredevils. There are plenty of scary, imaginative Gore, and even some very black humour.

    You're much kinder to it than I could have been. I found no redeeming value at all in this movie. At all. Not even as mindless entertainment :lol:

    I actually didn't mind that movie. It was messed in my mind, but it was alright.
