Awful - and I say that as a true lover of zombie stories and one who really appeciated the original film. First, be warned, if you listen to this with headphines have your fnger on the volume button AT ALL times if you value your hearing and want to avoid some real pain. He woman randomly screaming is not balanced with the voume of the speech, and is like a shrill, random siren blasted in your ears.
Aside from that - I don't recall racism being as overt and such a nasty, hateful motivation and subject of discussion in the original, and it didn't help in this version. I think the president speaking was supposed to be some kind of ROnald Reagan impersonation, which was just embarassingly bad, and I truly don't see the point of that. He main character lost much of the sympathy and ALL of the admirable chracteristics from the film, and was just some nasty monster. Also, the foul language really dumbed down the story - there was none of that in the film...
So, to sum up, this is a truly awful version of the original, and he makers should be embarassed - they really stunk up the story - making it stupid, cheap, common, boring and difficult to listen to.

Where does Night of the Living Dead (Dramatized) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's not the best one I've owned or listened to, but it's very entertaining. I first read the novel and heard the audiobook a loooong time ago so I was glad to find it here. Like the movie, this audiobook seemed to be made on a pretty tight budget. Sometimes those are the best ones..
What was one of the most memorable moments of Night of the Living Dead (Dramatized)?
The parts with Ben and Harry Cooper. Waaay more harsh verbally than in the movie. I can see some people being uncomfortable with the dialogue. As one reviewer pointed out, they seemed to have fun making this.
Which scene was your favorite?
Generally, the whole thing is fun and amusing!
Any additional comments?
Some people will curse me for giving this audiobook so many stars; I don't care. I enjoyed it!
