Day 304

Hallowe'en Week

movie: Night of the Living Dead (remake)
starring: Tony Todd, Patricia Tallman
genre: Horror
year: 1990
format: Online

plot: The dead have come back, and a group of survivors are trapped in a farm house.

This is the remake, and I'm scratching my head as to why this film is considered a goldmine? 

There is a line in the first half of the film, when the lead female character asks what is going on, and the answer is simply "I don't know. Nobody knows"  I thought that was a pretty swift move given you are literally thrown into the story without ever getting a real explanation.

what do i think i learned from this film?
There is a line at the end, where the movie's sole survivor utters "they are us, we're them"  while looking at the mob scene before her. What I take away from that is that like the zombies, we as a society do things on autopilot because it's breed into us.
This film is about having faith in yourself and knowing that when you're faced with the impossible, you will be able to find the strength to carry on. This is simply about surviving the worst and having to do the hardest thing you ever thought you'd have to do.
