My reaction
Synopsis: several strangers defend an isolated house from zombies
How I saw it: on video a couple times, most recently yesterday (have on DVD)
Concept: Indifferent.

Characters: Good.
Dialog: Good.
Pacing: Good.
Cinematography: Indifferent.
Special effects/design: Indifferent.
Acting: Good.
Music: Good.
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great). Aaah, it’s such a relief to watch a well-written movie…  Why is it that we’re watching a Bad Movie marathon again?  Just because we can?  Curse you, Night of the Living Dead, for reminding me what it was like in the before times, when we watched good movies.
Objective Rating: 2.9/4 (Good).
