As seen in: Diary of the Dead (2008)
Directed by: George A. Romero
Romero, who blessed the world with Night of the Living Dead (1968), Dawn of the Dead (1978), and Day of the Dead (1985), is the master of zombie horror, but his trademark social commentary fell off in this 2008 misfire. Wagging his old man finger at a younger, supposedly more self-absorbed, generation that records its every thought and move with camera phones and social media, Romero tells the story of would-be horror filmmakers who instead wind up documenting a zombie apocalypse as though being behind a camera lens protects them from getting bitten.
This is the Cloverfield "nobody would ever do this" scenario turned up to the max. Just look at the still pictured above. No one—we repeat, no one—is this self-important (or dedicated to filmmaking). Not even "kids these days."
