This is found on the DVD of the Director's Cut version of the Dawn of the Dead remake of 2004. Like the other extra features on there, it kind of underwhelms. The way it's produced is fine... they couldn't market it as a video diary if the camera wasn't just placed somewhere in front of Andy. This also sort of does the Cloverfield thing, with there already having been something on the tape, that occasionally pops up briefly when he stops recording for a while. That's all perfectly acceptable, if it does put the entire weight of carrying it on the shoulders of the actors, and of those, mainly Bohne. And that's where the real problem arises: None of these people are very good, convincing performers(the kid was by far the worst, then again, few children are that compelling, and they are typically considered OK if they can deliver lines and attempt to enunciate), and Bruce simply neither possesses the charisma or the talent to be the lead in a short anywhere near this long. This is only fifteen minutes, but with no real drama, horror or comedy(which they may have been going for here and there, though it's so vague that I can't be certain), you're gonna feel *every single second of it*. Yes, this does try to give back-story, flesh out "that gun store owner" we see in the film. If it didn't, there'd obviously be absolutely no justification for this at all. And it's still not that interesting. Heck, some of this takes away from the enjoyment of the movie, and one or two things may outright contradict it. At least this is pretty psychologically accurate. There is moderately frequent strong language in this, and disturbing content. I recommend this mainly to the biggest fans of the flick itself, and of this type of thing. 5/10
