We stop to watch."farnzy | 09/03/2008 | See all farnzy's reviews (164)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Romero's own reboot of Night Of The Living Dead is a solid study of terror rather than a groundbreaking one. However Diary still manages to cram in more social comment than most horror movies whilst slowly cranking up it's bleak premise into one of total despair.Romero uses a student film crew to document this version of his apocalypse, a found tape or maybe even an uploaded record of the catastrophe-we can never be sure. Jason Creed's film, "The Death Of Death" allows the veteran director to give a frantic immediacy to a genre so familiar with the audience that nothing is taken for granted by them. Romero also knows how to shoot sympathetic characters and Diary succeeds where Cloverfield failed-we give a damn about the film makers even if we don't like all of them.Most of the real horror takes place off camera-a snippet of footage here, a piece of a radio broadcast there, all of this when mixed with the student film highlights the dangerous misinformation of 24hr news media.Romero plays with the ghosts of recent panics-9/11, New Orleans, the Florida hurricanes, but he never forgets to scare and in his advanced years he is still a true master.
