Diary of Dead trailer

Its impossible to watch the new trailer for DIARY OF THE DEAD without thinking about CLOVERFIELD. Even more so now that Ive made the direct (and incredibly apt) comparison. DEAD follows a filmmaker and his friends as he shoots the beginning of the end aka a population of zombies coming to life to rip you apart. And why is he filming it? To have a record of what happened for the survivors, of course. Sound familiar? While this particular amateur filmmaker did a seemingly better job of holding the camera steady and used better film stock (less shaky-cam and less grainy than CLOVERFIELD) the effect remains the same. There's a heightened sense of reality because youre given the sensation of being right there with the characters, rather than watching it unfold from the comfort of a multiplex or your bedroom, for all you crooks out there. Either way, it looks like George A. Romero has ironically breathed life into his franchise, which before this, was seemingly dead. Pun very much intended. Check out the trailer HERE.
Extra Tidbit: There were reports of a DIARY OF THE DEAD 2 being greenlit, but Romero himself squashed those.

I thought that Cloverfield was way too polished and way too fake to be effective. This on the other hand, looks really good and looks like a movie like this should.

Benn waiting for this for a long time. Looks awesome. Romero has never made a bad zombie film in my useless opinion, and this looks no different. Bring it on George!

Having thrown up during Cloverfield I myself will welcome the steady camera zombie movie.

It looks way to polished. The film is too clear, the camera too steady, the light too good... It just scream staged instead of Cloverfield which looked 100% real.
