Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


The march 14 showing of Day was indeed cut. I watched this starting with the scene of Miguel being bitten.

I HAVE SEEN THE FIRST TEN MINUTES OF THE DAWN REMAKE. This was shown mere moments ago-22:00. I managed to record this on VHS. Much of this footage is Sarah Polley's introduction, but soon enough she has to fight zombies. The zombies were very fast! There are a lot of zombies chasing people. There is also a big camera shot of the city which shows a little carnage. It is very chaotic. There are car accidents. Police vehicles and ambulances are racing through the streets. Also, there are radio and television announcements. It looks like the world will be overtaken very quickly. A zombie bit a man's neck-it looks like Savini's effects!

Cool man! Have you seen police men firing at zombies and where did the zombies come from? In a trailer I saw the nurse's daughter became a zombie but why? The footage you've seen, was this like 28 Days Later or not? In this film there are also fast infected.

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


There is no mention of what causes the zombies. All things considered, the cause might be very similar to the original Dawn.

The child zombie is not the nurse's daughter. The girl belongs to the nurse's neighbors. It is not clear how she becomes a zombie, but it apparently happened during the nighttime(she is wearing bedclothes).

The police are not shown firing at anyone. It seems that the footage occurs as the zombies begin to spread, so the police have not yet had the chance to shoot any zombies.

The zombies are very much like the Infected from 28 Days Later. Take note that these fast zombies are freshly dead. Perhaps, after a few days, these zombies will begin to rot and then they will slow down. These zombies also make gutteral noises that are similar to the sounds of the Infected.

ALSO: A familiar chopper is shown flying over the city. It is not shown closely, but brown decals are visible on it's side. It looks very much like the WGON chopper. This might not be relevant to the remake; it might simply be a brief homage to the original Dawn.

The scene when the nurse's friend gets killed by the little girl, is this gory? And how does the nurse escape? In the trailer I saw she was trapped in her room?

About the zombies who are beginning to rot. Why don't the people in the mall just stay where they are so they zombies will rot away completely?

The scene of the nurse's friend being killed is very cool. The bite looks like something from the original Dawn or Day. It happens quickly, but skin can be seen stretching and tearing.

The nurse escapes through the bathroom.

About the people leaving the mall: you ask a very good question. Perhaps they leave the mall because they need supplies(medicines, food or bullets). They zombies may have broken into the mall, chasing the people out.

It might take a very long time for a zombie to rot enough to not be considered a threat.

This remake will be or very bad or very good I think. With very good I don't mean it will be better than the original. I'm convinced the remake won't be better then the original, that's for sure but I think it will be very good.

In a trailer I saw there were over a 1000 zombies outside the man. I heard they have to leave the mall because the zombies could brake in any minut. I also saw a scene of they were driving in a truck trough a mass of zombies. I think the movie will be that the try to do things, get more suplies and that with each action a few of the group will die intil there are just some of them left. Although this is seen in a lot of other horror movies it can work out well.

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


As I write this, the time is 20:00 March 18. The Dawn remake will hit theaters tomorrow, and I probably will not get a chance to see it until next week. Nevertheless, I will rate the footage I have seen. I think the remake will not be better than 5, 6, or 7(at the most) of ten stars. The remake is a mainstream American film, so the gore will not take center-stage as much as in Italian zombie movies. Still, the gore looks good. I rate the gore 9 of 10 stars. I think there will be flaws in the film's story, like the girl zombie that attacks the nurse. I believe there might be a deleted scene of the girl being killed. The R-rated theatrical cut looks worse without this story information.

About the supplies: I think the mall would have very many supplies. Someone in the group might need special medication.

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


Last night I was dreaming about that I was in a mall and there were zombies all over the place, pretty scary so I guess the movie could be good. It's a mainstream film but still I think it will good because it can have some nice scares.

You said the girl could be killed but you haven't seen it. Is this because it looks like there was a deleted scene in the footage which was aired?

I'm afraid of the following: I'm not sure of course but if it happens it would be pretty weak. If the nurse sees her friend back as a zombie. Why do I think this would be weak: used in too many other movies and the chance she sees him back is very small because I saw over a 1000 zombies outside. But I'm prett sure this happens in the movie.

Remember when we were talking about Zombie Flesh Eaters. Alex came with a scene that a zombie baby bursts out of his mother's belly and I'm not sure it was you who said: sounds like a deleted scene from Zombie Flesh Eaters. Well, in the trailer I saw there was something wrong with the pregnant woman, maybe it happens...

The company which sent out that remake footage must have been paid a lot of money. Here in Holland this would never happen. The only footage we see of upcoming movies are trailers.

One last thing, I'm just curious, but how does that footage ends? Is the girl already in the mall?

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


I have had a few zombie dreams. Ten years ago, I dreamed of hiding in a hospital and there were fast zombies. My dream was inspired by Return of the Living Dead. I saw this movie during it's original theatrical run, and it scared me very much. This was my first experience of a zombie movie. As we exited the theater, I asked my parents "can this happen?" At that time, I was six years old, so I did not understand the comedy within the film. The only thing I understood was the horror of dead people feeding on living people.

About the girl: She is shown once as human and then once as a zombie. The conversation that she has with the nurse reveals the girl to be a neighbor's child. However, the conversation implies that the nurse might have a child. When the girl is initially shown as a zombie, the scene is dark and it is difficult to see if it is the neighbor's child. The identity of the girl zombie could be misunderstood. Zach Snyder mentioned that there are a lot of deleted scenes. I think there might be a bit of extra footage that explains the identity of the girl of zombie.

The nurse sees her friend as a zombie. It is he that chases the nurse out of her house and into her car. He pursues the car until he spots another human standing beside the street(this is a cool peice of footage, it is somewhat funny). The nurse's friend is bitten by the girl. Within three minutes of being bitten, he becomes a zombie. When the nurse realized that her friend had become a zombie, she did not seem sad. In fact, she did everything logical to get away from him. This is uncommon in a horror film-for a woman to react without emotion in such a terrible situation. I think she might see him later, because this would be dramatic. No matter what number of zombies surround the mall, she would be affected if she saw her friend again. How she expresses this could be interesting. Or likely not because this is an mainstream American film.

About the pregnant lady: That is sick !@#$. I remember this topic. I meant to write Zombie(as in Fulci's Zombi 2) instead of Zombie Flesh Eaters. Sorry for the misunderstanding. If the pregnant lady scene had been in Zombie, the lady would be totally naked as she attempts to give birth. I believe a pregnant lady scene could happen in the Dawn remake, but with no gore. The mainstream American audience loves carnage, but they also have rules about gore and violence.

The USA Network showed the Dawn remake footage. It is probably the first time that movie footage(other than trailers) has been shown on TV before the movie's release. I think the network paid the movie producers for the footage. It was shown in a commericial(advertisement) break during a movie. During the movie, a regular amount of advertisements were shown PLUS an additional 20 minutes of ads! This is valuable for the movie producers as advertising, but it also helps the network increase it's ratings. (A side question: are you familiar with Nielsen TV ratings or is this exclusive to the USA?) Monday nights are very important for TV producers, because it usually has the biggest audience.

The footage ends with the nurse crashing her car into a tree. There will probably be much more footage of the zombie's overtaking the city before the mall is shown.emoticon

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


I remember a dream some weeks ago, I dreamed of Demons. It was really funny: there were demons in out school and we ran to the gym of our school were we took baseball bats the beat the crap out of the demons emoticon When I was young I was afraid of such dreams, now I just see it as an adventure emoticon

When the DVD of the remake comes out, is it usual it will have two versions on it: R and X-rated version? I also saw this on the DVD of TCM 3 and Bride of Re-Animator. Why would people do this? If someone buys TCM 3 for example you won't expect he'll watch the R-rated version. Here in Holland Bride of Re-Animator appeared in stores some weeks ago, with no extras but with the uncut version because here it doesn't matter. I you show the R-rated version and the X-rated version both movies will be rated here above the 16.

I guess the people which are bitten becomes zombies pretty fast. In the original it took some days. What about Ving Rhames? On a picture I saw he was wounded, bitten?

I thought Zombie 2 and Zombie Flesh Eaters were the same. Also known as Zombie but in Europse Dawn of the Dead is called Zombie - Dawn of the Dead.

I've never heard of Nielsen TV rating, probably this is only in the USA.

The girl crashes into a three? I guess this was because a zombie jumped on the car, I saw this on a picture. When are you going to te remake or have you already seen it?
