Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018)

Directed by Hector Hernandez Vicens.  Written by Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson.  Starring Sophie Skelton, Marcus Vanco and Johnathon Schaech.

Plot: this is supposed to be more like the original, and it is, but no

This movie is all over the place.  This is more of a reimagining than a straight remake, but the differences were just so difficult to swallow.  What made the original movie fun was gone.  Bub, for instance, is now called Max and he is nothing of what Bub was.

For one thing, Max is rapey, even after becoming a zombie.  Yup.  And Bub never was.  But Max won’t hurt her in other ways.  Like, he won’t bite her.  Which doesn’t make sense at all.  Then, after he’s a zombie completely, he starts tracking Zoe like a damned bloodhound.  He rolls under a frickin’ truck and holds on, smelling her all the way to her location.  No human/zombie noses should be able to do that.

And how did she know that Max wouldn’t hurt her anyway?  He was rapey in real life, so how, after one frickin’ minute, did she know that he wouldn’t hurt her when zombie?

The whole movie is too over-the-top.  Her weak ass narration is horrible.  The writing is horrible (why does the little girl run towards the zombies when freaking out?).  The specials weren’t too bad, just unreasonably gory.  They simply changed what didn’t need changing.

As for an actual fear factor, Max was creepy to me (as pictured above), but none of the other zombies were.

My score: 21.  DJ’s score: 12.

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
