SCAREFEST Review: Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated

Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated is a collaborative artistic mash-up of George Romero's cult classic. Nearly 150 International artists and animators chose their favorite scenes and re-envisioned them through their own artwork, with no restrictions on style, media or process - resulting in an eclectic 'art show' interpretation of the seminal 1968 film, all placed over the original's audio. With work ranging from oil paintings to comic illustrations and sock puppets to CGI and stop-motion - NOTLD:R not only pays the respect due to this most important work in horror history, but encourages viewers to experience the film in a brand new light that bursts with the humor and horror of a new generation of artists. Art is dead...yeah, it's all messed up.

My dad and I are huge fans of the Night of the Living Dead movies.  I got this because I thought it would be a great flick for one of our father/daughter movie nights.  I wouldn't say that this version is one of my favorites.  It's definitely new and different but I couldn't really get into it.
