Night of the Living Dead 3-D is a remake, parody and homage to 1968’s Night of the Living Dead all at once. Some characters are named the same, the filming locations are similar, but the final product is theatrical, or at times strongly inspired by slasher horror. The themes and subplots are varied: drugs, nudity, gore and sex with tongue in cheek humor, mostly.
You can tell by the photography that it wasn't made on a high budget. Even the 3-D vision can’t trick the eye the way it should. The make-up and effects don’t suffer much the obvious financial limitations, though, and the film is accessible. There are twists sprinkled at every turn and there is its strength. It’s not the predictable re-imagining you might expect.
A couple of familiar faces and good gore is sometimes all you need. If you can overlook the sometimes poor editing and the occasional cheap special effect, you might be entertained by this. Everyone can, at this point, add to the Night of the Living Dead franchise. The original film’s copyright was not maintained and this is the kind of productions we have to expect from here on.
