‘Night of the Animated Dead’ Review – A Fun Take On A Classic

I finally got the chance to watch WBHE’s Night of the Animated Dead, and I had a fun time with it. As a fan of the classic Night of the Living Dead by George Romero, I thought it was a cool take of retelling the film. Time to jump into the spoiler-free review of Night of the Animated Dead!

Night of the Animated Dead is directed by Jason Axinn and animated by Demente Animation Studio. Barbra (Katherine Isabelle) and her brother Johnny (Jimmi Simpson) were visiting their father’s grave until a horde of zombies came out to attack. Barbra escaped to an abandon farmhouse with a motorist named Ben (Dulé Hill) and four other survivors who were hiding in the cellular. Everyone will team up to fight off the zombies to stay alive while dealing with their own problems as well.

I enjoyed the animated take of the story. What I can confirm is that they pretty much follow the Night of the Living Dead. As mentioned before, I’m a fan of the OG film, so I wasn’t disappointed. This film could’ve went a whole different direction that probably could’ve been rough, but it didn’t, so props to the team.

Ok, so how did I feel about the animation? That’s been one of the criticisms of the film since the first trailer, but I had no problem with it. Night of the Animated Dead went with a classic adult animation route, which we don’t get enough of now, and it worked. I mean sure I did laugh at certain scenes, but I didn’t think it was bad. Demente Animation Studio did a good job in my opinion.

I enjoyed the score as well. It’s one of those things where you would think “Oh they’re going to mess up the music!” And they didn’t. Definitely happy with it.

The cast did a good job too. The two important ones obviously are Ben and Barbra. Ben was my favorite in the original film, and he was played by the amazing Tony Todd, so my expectations were HIGH (yes, all caps) for animated Ben played by Dulé Hill. I think Hill did a good job, is it Tony Todd good?! No, but that’s because of me being biased. I enjoyed Katharine Isabelle’s performance as Barbra, she captured the character good. Overall, not bad with the casting choices for the film.

What can I say? I enjoyed Night of the Animated Dead. It’s an adaption that I didn’t think I would have fun with at first, but I did. If the animation is what put you off of the film, I promise you it’s not that bad. I thought this film as a whole worked and wouldn’t mind more adult animation in future WBHE films.

I recommend watching Night of the Animated Dead, especially with friends. I promise you’ll have a good time.
