Night of the Living Dead 3D – USA, 2006

‘The dead will never look so alive’

Night of the Living Dead 3D or Night of the Living DE3D is a 2006 horror feature film produced and directed by Jeff Broadstreet from a screenplay by Robert Valding. The movie stars Brianna Brown, Joshua DesRoches and Sid Haig.

The first remake was released in 1990 and was directed by Tom Savini from a revised screenplay by George A. Romero. Unlike the first remake, no one involved with the original is involved with this version. The original film was never properly copyrighted, and so it has fallen into the public domain, making this remake possible with no permission from the original’s creators (the original movie can actually be seen playing on TV in this version).

It was released on DVD on October 9, 2007 in two separate versions, the original 3D format which includes four pairs of anaglyph (red/blue) 3D glasses, and a 2D version that does not require nor include any 3D glasses.

Plot:

Barb and her brother Johnny arrive late for their aunt’s funeral and find the cemetery overrun with zombies. After Johnny abandons her, Barb flees the cemetery and is rescued by Ben, a local college student.

The pair seek refuge in the nearby farmhouse of the Cooper family (Henry and Hellie Cooper, Henry’s daughter and Hellie’s stepdaughter Karen, farmhand Owen, and farmhand Tom and his girlfriend Judy), and attempt to live through the night along with other survivors, including the pyrophobic mortician, Gerald Tovar, Jr.

As Barb and Ben attempt to convince the Cooper family that the zombies are heading to the house, Tom and Judy are attacked while having sex in the barn. After hearing Judy’s screams, Barb and the rest of the household attempt to save her, but they are too late. When Tovar arrives, he explains what is happening. Owen the farmhand and Karen succumb to zombie bites and become undead…

    1. It’s not very good but having heard so many bad things about it I was surprised it wasn’t as awful as I’d expected. There are certainly a lot worse zombie movies out there!
