Hypnotoad

#37/100

37. Diary of the Dead  What a let down. This was just a rehash of all the Zombie and Teen Horror movie clichés with a Blair Witch twist. Which was already done - in Blair Witch! There were a few interesting takes on the passivity of man. How he observes without taking action. But the message got stuffed down our throats instead of being a subtle subtext. And there were no good scares. The movie followed the clichés so closely you knew exactly what was going to happen just by the scene's establishing shot. Oh, well. George Romero has let us down. 1/5
