Scary because I feel just about exactly the same way. As an aside I grew up in Murrysville which is next to Monroeville and the Monroeville Mall and my mother took me there at least twice a week most of my childhood life so seeing the movie for the first time pretty much blew me away in that aspect. But that really isn't why I love it so. Anyways I love the original and yes I admit that I was against the remake from the day I heard about it. I still saw it. And had the movie been really good or even somewhat good I would have said so. I really would. But that wasn't the case. Sorry. The movie sucked. Nothing SPECIAL is in this movie. There is not ONE moment in the film that moved me ... no shock, no scare, no sadness, no happyness no nothing. Beyond that it even had shitty music and poor cinematography and just plain stupid shit like when that oil tank blew up in front of the trucks "knocking" the zombies down with some "wave" effect. Really I can't imagine what you people are seeing in this that makes you think it is any good. I just can't fanthom anyone thinking this movie is a good movie. It isn't even in that SO BAD IT'S GOOD catagory. It's just plain pathetic and a BIG waste of time! - John "FulciLives" Coleman P.S. I do like the subplot about the guy across the street. I do have to admit that when he got bitten that was a downer and probably the only time in the entire movie that I felt emotion and connected. But this subplot alone can't save this movie from being one big pile of dog pooh.
