Night of the Animated Dead (2021)



Red Band trailer:




Revisit George A. Romero’s 1968 horror classic in an altogether unprecedented presentation as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases Night of the Animated Dead, a new, star-studded animated recreation of the thriller coming September 21, 2021 to Digital and October 5, 2021 to Blu-ray Combo Pack & DVD. In Night of the Animated Dead, siblings Barbara and Johnny visit their father’s grave in a remote cemetery in Pennsylvania when they are suddenly set upon by zombies. Barbara flees and takes refuge in an abandoned farmhouse along with stranded motorist Ben and four local survivors found hiding in the cellar. Together, the group must fight to stay alive against the oncoming horde of zombies while also confronting their own fears and prejudices.

Night of the Animated Dead features the voice talents of Josh Duhamel (Jupiter’s Legacy, Transformers) as Harry Cooper, Dulé Hill (The West Wing, Psych) as Ben, Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps) as Barbara, James Roday Rodriguez (A Million Little Things, Psych) as Tom, Katee Sackhoff (The Mandalorian, Battlestar Galactica) as Judy, Will Sasso (MadTV) as Sheriff McClelland, Jimmi Simpson (Westworld) as Johnny and Nancy Travis (Last Man Standing) as Helen Cooper.

The animation for this looks really terribly amateurish. I'm not sure if I could get past that aspect enough to enjoy the film in any capacity.

It really does. The character animation looks like it’s out of one of those shitty “Adult Swim” shows you see on The Cartoon Network late at night.

The background animation looks decent though. The contrast between the two is pretty distracting.

Their definition of "Star-studded" is clearly very different from mine.

The thing with the [adult swim] shows is they have new and outlandish stories they’re telling that make up for the low grade animation. While NOTLD was groundbreaking back in the day, the story is not “extreme” enough for nowadays.

I was sorta excited but after seeing the trailer I may wait for a cheap used copy.

I really don't understand the point of this. It doesn't even seem like it would be a good cash grab.

I'd rather actually watch Katharine Isabelle than just hear her voice.

I'll watch; but why not tell someone else's story of the Night? We know the story of this group...

That sounds like a neat idea, I wonder if that ever came up when making this? Even talking about how the people already in the house got there.
