“Night of the Living Dead 3D” is hilarious.
Too bad it wasn’t trying to be intentionally so.
Oh, where to begin. “NotLD 3D” is an amazingly weak movie in almost every facet. It does nothing to establish itself as a “remake” of the classic NotLD, and in fact the majority of the changes it made to the storyline in order to set itself apart from the 1968 original were terrible decisions in almost every way imaginable.
I would say spoilers are ahead, but that would indicate that anything I might say could spoil your possible enjoyment of the film, and that’s simply not true…there’s no way you’re going to get any serious enjoyment out of this film.
The classic farmhouse now houses a family that grows and sells pot (that’s right, a whole family of lawbreakers, and bad stereotypes at that: redneck Dad in overalls, way-too-hot-to-be-believable Mom, and an oblivious pre-teen daughter that the “hired hand” smokes pot right in front of…you stay classy, director Jeff Broadstreet). Every single character in this movie makes up a collection of morons and apathetic people that the average audience member has little to no motivation to connect to or care about.
