Time Out says

This surprisingly successful colour remake of George Romero's seminal zombie movie, scripted by Romero himself and directed by make-up effects man Savini, uses the audience's familiarity with the original to indulge, frustrate and subvert its expectations. Savini himself has said: 'It's not a remake so much as retelling... There are lots of twists and turns that aren't in the original. And, in a way, it's almost a sequel: sixty minutes into this movie you're getting, in a way, another film.' Yet despite its knowingness, there is genuine horror here, as a party of terrified survivors are trapped in a remote country house by a relentless horde of flesh-eating zombies.
