Romero has a bunch of great ideas and a generally good story here. The problem here lies mainly in the low production quality and George's amateur direction. The whole movie is shot and edited extremely haphazardly, with the 180 degree rule all but thrown out the window through the vast majority of it. The special effects too, are laughably bad in places. Still, Romero's signature social commentary and portrayal of human errors stands strong as usual, and it's especially relevant in this day and age with COVID and everything. I just wish he actually knew what the fuck he was doing on set.
