Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Director: George A. Romero
4.5 / 5 zedheads
As I write this review, it is two days before Christmas and I just returned from the mall. After fighting my way through a sea of bodies wandering through the mall with no discernible pattern and with blank, shell-shocked expressions on their faces, my thoughts turn naturally to Dawn of the Dead. Although the makeup and gore effects in Dawn of the Dead are clearly dated, the social commentary at the heart of George A. Romero's action / drama zombie film is still relevant today. You can go to any mall at any time of year and see your own zombies shambling from store to store.
|Zombies have no concept of personal space.|
|I just can't take another marathon of What Not to Wear.|
|This is why you should never pop a zit, kids|
|Don't look so shocked. That machete wasn't for show.|
|Roger's reaction to 2 Girls, 1 Cup.|
|Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away|
|I try really hard, but Travis just sleepwalks through his role.|
THE 12 DAYS OF ZOMBIE concludes tomorrow with our final zombie classic.
