If the internet had been nearly as popular in 1990 as it is now, I'll bet the IMDB message boards would be filled with protests from outraged fans of the original (the way the message boards on Dawn of the Dead are now). I'm pretty sure that when this came out, there were plenty of people screaming blasphemy. But, I'm almost ashamed to say this, I found this remake even better than the original, and the original is a classic! It launched the zombie genre of to incredible popularity, and it's a just plain amazing movie. I rented this earlier the other day, not really sure what to expect. What I found was that this movie was much more entertaining and exciting and suspenseful than the original. It moves faster, has better effects, better acting, the works. Also, it throws in plenty of little plot-twists so a scholar of the original could still be surpried. From the get-go, things aren't as they seem. We think we know what's going to happen, but then it's totally different and unexpected.
The biggest change in this flick is the Barbara character. No longer is she a whiny little pansy who just sits around and cries. Now, she shoots zombies, she stabs zombies, she fights zombies, and she finally points out what I'm sure many fans of the Dead trilogy have known for a long time. "They're so slow!" she observes. "We could just walk right past 'em. We wouldn't even have to run."
The acting is very impressive. Tony Todd is outstanding as Ben, improving on Duane Jones' excellent performance from the '68 version. Patricia Tallman is probably the best in the movie. Stong, capable and determined. Tom Towles is great as the scumbag, and his wife performs admirably. William Butler is pretty good as Tom, but his girlfriend is definately the worst performer in the movie.

Most remakes are a total joke, however Savini is a genius when it comes to gore etc and makes this one part of the Dead family. If you LOVE the original film and want a small "different" spin then check this out, the acting is GREAT and the zombies look disgustingly cool. Not one to miss if your a "dead" fan.

So you're George Romero, writer and director of one of the most influential horror movies ever, Night of the Living Dead (1968), and it's some twenty odd years later and you're executive producing a remake of said movie. Who do you get to direct? How about special effects master Tom Savini, the man responsible for the horrifying effects in Dawn of the Dead (1978) and Day of the Dead (1985)? Seems a pretty good choice to me...
Night of the Living Dead (1990) stars Tony Todd and Patricia Tallman as Ben and Barbara, respectively, two individuals who seek refuge in a farmhouse as a legion of hungry corpses descend upon them and soon find the house not so much a haven as a claustrophobic nightmare. They also discover they aren't the only ones in the house, as there are five people locked in the basement. Emerging from their hidey-hole are Harry and Helen Cooper, a married couple, and Tom and Judy Rose, a younger couple, Tom's uncle being the owner of the house. Also in the basement is the Cooper's daughter, Sarah, who has become ill after being bitten by one of the undead (guess where that's going). A diverse group, for sure, and one that finds itself at odds in if it's better to fortify the house or retreat to the fairly secure basement. Harry thinks it's best to go into the basement and bar the door, but Ben would rather board up all the doors and windows, using the basement as a last option, as there is only one way in and out and he doesn't want to trap himself down there unless he absolutely has to...Harry, who is quite vocal throughout, thinks this plan foolish and says once he goes into the basement and bars the door, he won't open it for anything, regardless.

I have to give Tom Savini credit, this was not your average Remake. It captures much of the qualities that made the original so wonderful, the spontaneous attack, a fabulously gifted leading man, and a good deal at stake. The direction is nearly flawless, and the newer effects are a welcome addition. Savini even managed, though massively retooling some key characters, to maintain the sociological subtext of the original film. (Take note everyone, when the dead live, we need to work together)
My only problem with the film is that it is only part one of a three part story, and Part One ends too easily. The plot tends to pin every wrong on one character, who, though often wrong in the original film, was only one player in the greater chaos. I like the few changes in the character of Barbra, but, well, let's just say I like the original ending (and its implications) better. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this remake of a classic, if for no other reason than to see an already great story told in a slightly different way.

Ok, this is a rather pointless remake of the original classic. What makes it so bad is that it was directed by Tom Savini, who collaberated with George Romero on "Dawn of the Dead" and Day of the Dead". Savini, a noted make-up artist specializing in gore and blood, left this movie pretty dry. The plot is the same, a group of strangers are wholed up in a farm house that is besieged by zombies. There are no big stars here, except Tony Todd, who went on to be the Candyman. He is obviously the hero, or so you'd think. The end is different, and not for the better. The acting is pretty wooden, but you were expecting that, weren't you? The gore is graphic, but like I said, I was expecting more from Savini. The moral of the story is pounded home too hard. But it's fair, and not too long, so it's barable. It is a good movie, just not great. I only wish that they would stop remaking the classics and give Romero the money to do the fourth 'Dead' movie.
