    Wow, I never realised that Zombie movies faired so porly. Then again, with Cemetary Man only playing in 25 theaters, what do you expect.

    Hello...

    Of course Resident Evil will become number #1. It's a mainstream film, with a chick in it that is based off of a popular game -- all the brainwashed kiddies will go..... Doesn't mean it's good though....


    I probably wont ever see it..

  6. RE can lick my ballz! Romero would've done it the justice it deserved!

    Its pains me to look at that list & see how poorly some of my fav horror movies did at the box office! :(

    But RE will make more than Romero's 4th Dead film. It's sad. It will do well because it's a videogame, that's all. Otherwise it would do 5 mil like NOTLD 90.

  9. Is this like your world series where you only play against yourselves ???

    Surely the biggest grossing proper (I'm sorry Death Becomes Her is not a Zombie Movie, that's like calling Hill Street Blues a Slasher film because somebody gets err 'slashed') Zombie movie (inflation adjusted) looking at Worldwide receipts would be Zombie Flesh Eaters which I read took US $30 million

    RE

    I saw Resident Evil and it turned out to be a pretty kick ass movie. It followed the game somewhat (name changes, reversed settings) and had a decent gore factor for a R flick (Could have been more though, there is a NC-17 cut in Paul's hands). I thought it would suck just like the rest of you, but I gave it a chance and liked it. Easily one of the best Hollywood horror movies in the past few years. So quit your bitchin about what Romero would have done and give it a try (I would rather Romero hurry and finish the 4th Dead film anyway). It's definitely not for "kiddies" though. :p

    Romero would have easily done a better job and I haven't even seen the goddamn movie. In fact, an article in last week's OC register was written demanding that Romero should be paid or sue the team behind RE because of all the work Romero put into it and what the producers stole from him and many of his movies. And for Romero's 4th Dead flick, I hope it kicks ass, but Dead Reckoning?? I don't really like the sound of that.........Where did Twilight of the Dead go?

    Did anyone read romeos script, I did and I foud it very enjoyable and entertaining and very faithful to the game with a lot of caracter development, (not many zombies though) but a very good script.

    I havenĀ“t seen the movie yet so I cannot compare with is the better story.
     
  14. U know...as soon as I saw this movie on the list I immediately discarded it! I have no idea what that movie is doing on a "zombie" list! Its a dark comedy...not even close to being a horror film! Oh well!

    Possible spoiler














    RE copied Romero. Go see it. The beginning of Day of the Dead. The city is destroyed and you see "The Dead Walk" paper. And in Dawn when Roger tells Peter he doesn't want to walk around like that.

    I'm glad to see ROTLD2 made a decent chunk of change.

    think what you want, but it usually helps to actually see the movie first before you throw negative opinions. :p

    and nexus, Ive read Romeo's script for the movie, and yes its very faithful to the game, but thats what makes it unappealing to me. Ive played and beaten the games, so watching his movie would be predictable and kinda boring... even in script form I knew everything that was going to happen, from the mutant snake to the tyrant in the end.zzzzzzz. I'm glad anderson did this film, and made it something new for both freaks of the game (like myself) and people who have never played it. Yet it is still in RE's storyline and world.
    take care
