Zombie movies rule!!!!!!!!!! I can't get
enough of the living dead, but unfortunately, there are so many
exceptionally bad zombie movies out there. Luckily for the fans, there are a few that have helped to fill the
staple of our zombie diet and at the top of our nutrition chart is
"Dawn of the Dead".
of my favorites, and definitely one of my all-time top five horror films
George Romero's “Dawn of the Dead.” I can remember seeing it
for the first time as though it were yesterday. Unfortunately, when
"Dawn" was released in theaters (1978), I was way too young to
go see it , but it was the first video I rented when I bought a
VCR. Earlier I had instantly fallen in loved with "Night of the
Living Dead," having first seen it on MTV of all places. This was
back when MTV was forced to come up with alternative programming, because
they only had about 10 videos that they showed a million times a day. On
the weekends, they used to run cult movies (Remember "Reefer
me want to inhale.) and always played NOTLD right around Halloween.
Once I’d saw it, I was hooked on zombies.
of the Dead” is in my top two zombie movies. I loved Fulci's “Zombie,”
but I just watched "Dawn" on laserdisc from Elite (awesome
laserdisc, a must for any horror fan) and it blew me away. The jury is
still out on which is number one in my book, but both movies are amazing
in their own unique ways.
loved so many things about this movie starting with mall. If zombies
walked the earth today, my local mall would definitely served as my home
away from home. It's a perfect place to hole-up in and everything
you would ever need is at your finger tips. Second, the zombies in
"Dawn" were fabulous, but not as cool as the ones in
“Zombie”. They were comical at times and terrifying at others, which
added a unique and entertaining blend to the film. Third, Romero really
did an outstanding job with character development. You really feel for
these characters and the struggle they endure. Fourth and finally, the
me just say is truly amazing.
people have inferred that "Dawn" is Romero's social commentary
on the times, which he has flatly denied on numerous occasions.
Surely, a writer's work is always going to be influenced by his beliefs,
but I believe that these movies are for horror fans and not the general
public. Overall, "Dawn" was, is, and always will be, a horror
classic. Rumors of a new "Living Dead" movie have been
circulating for years and even on the Elite disc, Romero said he would
love to make another one. Please George, make it more like
"Dawn of the Dead!"
