I hated Diary of the Dead. It seemed odd that a horror filmmaker would take on voyeuristic YouTube culture as an "evil" to be exposed. Really? You do realize why people love your zombie movies so much, right? Because they get to watch realistic, seemingly familiar people in an extremely bad situation. It's the same voyeuristic tendency that has people watching celebrities and funny accidents on YouTube. Whatever. Not to mention that his conversion to CGI gore was unforgiveable, the acting was atrocious, and the story was nonexistent. All that said, I don't understand all the hate for Land. It was not as good as the original three, but it was a fun movie with lots of epic zombie battles. The performances were decent. The story was interesting. It seemed like the natural evolution of the series; each movie in the series had a larger cast, larger scope, and a larger slice of community. Where was there to go from Day except to a city?
