Night of the Living Dead - Another One for the Fire

"Oh hai! You came back"

A lot of remakes rarely live up to their predecessors, but the 1990 colorized adaption of Night of the Living Dead does the original justice. Sure, the remake was just made because most Americans can't sit down and watch a black-and-white movie anymore, but it was made well. The film is basically a faithful retelling of the original Romero story with the benefit of better special effects, cameras, and lighting. There are a few subtle differences, particularly the ending. While the original ending was very dark and full of meaning, the remake ends on a slightly more positive note, with some ham-fisted social commentary for good measure. But watching Barbara shoot that asshole Harry in the head was the most satisfying part of the film. A great death.
