      Dan C Night of the Living Dead was been remade a million different ways. I thought this retooling was pretty decent. It's not a shot-for-shot remake, but it's close. The animation is pretty basic, but at least, in that way it feels different. The added gore and flashbacks are definitely what set apart from the original. It's not a masterwork, but it is a cool little treat for fans of the source material, if you check your expectations at the door. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/12/23 Full Review Mariana C Es la mera vena... me gusta su violencia Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Who does this movie exist for? Anyone can easily find Night of the Living Dead and there's really no need for it to be nearly shot for shot remade with more in your face gore and overacted voiceovers. Sure, you get to see what happened in front of Beekman's Diner, but otherwise, all this movie adds is more viscera to the proceedings. The characters look beyond flat and the only thing that the ones that look like the original actors will do is make you want to just watch the black and white classic that this shamelessly copies. Jason Axinn made To Your Last Death which had so much more going for it than this effort. Lack of effort, maybe. About the only thing to watch this movie for is to see who takes over each voice. Barbara is Katharine Isabelle from Ginger Snaps and her brother Johnny is Jimmi Simpson from Westworld. Dulé Hill is Ben, while Harry and Helen Cooper are played by Josh Duhamel and Nancy Travis. Tom is James Roday Rodriguez and Judy is Katee Sackhoff while MAD TV comedian Will Sasso is Sheriff McClelland. Otherwise, this is an overly referential version of the original film that would have been better off if it Ralph Bakshi rotoscoped the inspiration and just made it look more cartoonish. New movie fans won't have any need to see this and fans of the original will undoubtedly be upset with the fact that this offers little new. Instead, all it does is give you more: more blood, more internal organs, more animated bodies that feel like they float instead of moving like people. Also take a look at that great art on the cover. You're not getting anything like that in this cartoon. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review robert p I do not know what possessed me (ha ha) to watch this animated trash, I could only get 15 minutes into it, boy did it stink.

      Dev Shea Nightmarish Conjurings If you aren’t an animation snob like myself, then I think you will have a lot more fun with Night of the Animated Dead. It stays very true to the source material while having just a little bit of fun with it. Sep 13, 2022 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Night of the Animated Dead is more graphically violent than the original, but aside from this and a minimalist (either due to style or economy) animation style, there's nothing much different from this and the 1968 Night of the Living Dead. Rated: 2/5 Oct 15, 2021 Full Review Kevin Carr Fat Guys at the Movies I don't know if this is entirely necessary... but there are elements to it you don't get from the original movie. You do get extra gore, which is the biggest selling point. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 15, 2021 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall While the shot-by-shot approach makes it feel somewhat unnecessary, it at least reminds us why the original is so indelible, reinventing a genre while touching lightly on very pointed issues. Rated: 3/5 Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Mike McGranaghan Aisle Seat What does animation bring to Night of the Living Dead? As it turns out, absolutely nothing. Rated: 2/4 Oct 5, 2021 Full Review Douglas Davidson Elements of Madness Strangely, outside of making the film animated to raise the gross factor and using modern actors, there is little desire for this remake to exist, leaving one craving the original with an unsuitable hunger.
