Dawn Of The Dead (1978) Review


Very Good
Ten years after the original Night of the Living Dead, George Romero returned to his zombie plague in what is widely considered that rare sequel which is better than the original. He certainly had more money to spend -- the movie's in color, with pretty good production values, extreme gore, and zombies galore. The story, of course, remains the same, as our gang of mismatched heroes hole up in a shopping mall while zombies surround them, Romero's tongue-in-cheek ode to Americans behaving as consumerist cattle. The splatter effects are outstanding and fairly pioneering for 1978, but any sense of foreboding is outweighed by the movie's repetitive plot. Two hours is just way too long for a zombie movie, folks, no matter how much flesh gets eaten.
