Well... it is a more visceral movie than Dawn. Which, Romero's film, was about that "hypnotization" of consumer culture on overload. It's practically hypocritical to even remake that movie on a big budget.

Lamberto Bava never made "thinking-man's" horror flicks. This isn't a defense, I'm just saying- I think Demons 2 was a fluke.

Although... that made-for-TV movie he did, Graveyard Disturbance... that was almost a decent flick. (Oh, Zombie Dude: there's another reason I thought Hellgate wasn't so bad.)
