George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead
(USA/Canada, 2007, 95 minutes)
A crew of students shooting a class project find themselves caught in what seems like the apocalypse, when the dead start rising from the graves and feeding on the living. The Night of the Living Dead updated by its own creator as a low-budget, independently-made comment on modern society's obsession with technology and media; intelligent, adult horror with a twisted sense of humour.
