Night of the Living Dead: Reanimation – Movie 150 of 365

13 Aug

Yet another movie borrowing the title that will make you at least give this crap a looksie.  Once again no real similarity to the classic besides a few references.  Supposedly this director actually attempted an honest to god remake of the classic like seven years ago.  If this movie is any indication of his work, I won’t be bothering with that feature either.

This is set in a mortuary run by Gerald Tovar, Jr. (Andrew Divoff).  The mortuary isn’t doing too well financially.  Bodies are stacking up in storage and did I mention that Tovar is storing and burying toxic waste as a side income. Corpses and toxic chemicals are not a good mix and Tovar has discovered that the bodies are slowly starting to reanimate.  Tovar is trying to keep all this a secret,  not just from customers and employees but also his prodigal brother who has just arrived with his hand out again.

Ignoring the title I have no problems with the plot, the execution is another matter.  This movie is slow and the dialogue is boring.  Plus throwing in the whole thinly veiled Sarah Palin parody in the character of Sister Sara (Denice Duff) adds a subplot that is completely unnecessary.

Well I guess I should say something nice. I did like the characters of Aunt Lou (Melissa Jo Bailey), DyeAnne (Robin Sydney), and Harold Tovar (Jeffrey Combs).  It’s just unfortunate that they were in this movie.
