The Night Of The Living Dead saga gets the documentary style/found footage treatment and it works in places, but not so well in others, as a ragtag group of teenagers film the events of a zombie apocalypse when the low-budget horror film they were shooting is interrupted by it.
Unfortunately it tries too hard to be clever and make some sort of social commentary that it forgets to be scary and the performances can only be described as serviceable at best.
