I'm thinking Red Lobster.
Crab legs anyone?

I don't understand some of these modern remakes.Often the original is better (like Halloween).

The CG screeching, the jump moments, etc. There will be action. There will be violence. There will be screaming and gore. Will there be horror? I'm not so sure. Given that they point out from the producers of Dawn of the Dead, I'm expecting a fast-thing/slow-thing debate to break out after everyone sees it. Slow-thing is more about the horror and fast-thing is all about "holy shit!", or something like that.
Sorry to be a wet blanket, but that's just how I see it. It's very hard for me to get excited about movies anymore. Theater? Maybe. My brother may get all psyched up and drag me out. It actually helps that I have low expectations. Leaves the door open for movies to be surprisingly good.
The trailer did make me wonder . . . They're making this woman out as the main protagonist, but we all know where this is going. We're expecting a couple guys in a helicopter chasing a dog when it all wraps up, right?
