At first I was apprehensive about this new entry in Romero's Dead
series, but that pretty much disappeared after the first scene. The
fact that the film was shot all in subjective camera doesn't result in
a gimmicky, incoherent mess, like, say, the Blair Witch, but is used
intelligently and effectively.

The scares and effects were great, and the movie actually takes a
rather complicated approach to the topic of today's media-saturated
environment, rather than being a crude polemic.

My only complaint would be that the voice-over and dialogue were a
little clunky at times, overexplaining things that could have been
inferred without too much trouble. That's a minor problem though.
Overall, a totally worthy entry in the series.
