Brief Synopsis:
An ambitious fanedit to keep LOTD more in line with the three previous Romero Dead Films. Reduced is the Zombies reasoning and lots of obvious special make-up effects. The level of gore and carnage has been increased. Finally this is a trure Romero Zombie movie.
Intention:
What I have tried to do with this FanEdit is to create a film more in keeping with the three previous Romero Dead Films. I have removed money as a motivator and reduced the Zombies reasoning. I have also removed the more obvious special make-up effects and increased the level of gore and carnage. I have also trimmed the more formulaic dialogue and attempts at light humor. There is a new prologue, whole new sequences and a new ending.

I will let you judge if this works or not.

I always liked Land of the Dead, but I'm glad for Mollo's alternate edition. The movie feels more to the point and I enjoyed seeing it without the sentient Zombie plotline.

The quality varies in the segments with added footage, especially in the new prologue. I loved the way that opening was put together but I couldn't help but notice how different every shot looked. Otherwise the editing was great throughout.

If you're a Romero fan, I recommend this edit.

I rated this movie 8 out of 10 because the source material is just not good enough to warrant better.
For example even this corrected movie is not as good as Romeros Day of the Dead (The modern one that takes place in the shopping mall)

Now as for the skill of the editor i found no mistakes or problems 10 out of 10 on that front.
Also did he polish the hell out of this turd? yes he did this movie is better than the original by miles.

So i endorse seeing this movie if you never saw the original or if you love zombie movies and hated the original.
But if you didnt like the original and you are indifferent about zombie movies then skip it, its way better than the original but its not must see viewing.

Excellent work, excellent cut of the movie, far superior to the original 8/10
