For me, this is pretty much the ultimate zombie film. I never considered myself a fan of the genre until I saw this masterpiece. The outbreak of a mysterious zombie plague that results in flesh-eating humans littering the streets and baying for blood sets the scene for a tale of survival.

Aided by a trusty helicopter, one band of survivors manages to get to a shopping centre, clear ... read more

When There's No More Room In Hell...

To me the first epic horror movie. Seems a little dated and merger within it's budgetary restraints, but over comes with sheer excitement and originality. Very interesting commentary on American society of the 1970's as a consumerist nation hellbent on consuming each other and everything they come in contact with. Just a fricking cool movie all around. Second part of Romero's Living Dead trilogy.

A classic

Since I bought a box set with the whole zombie trilogy, I couldn't wait to watch this 2nd flick. To be honest, pretty much like with 'Night of the Living Dead', even though I did like the damned thing, I can't say I found it really great though. In fact, I thought it was better than the first installment, sharper with a nice combination of horror, humor and satirical critic on our consumerist soci... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: July (12 movies items)

"July 31 - August 1 "What are they doing? Why do they come here?" "Some kind of instinct. Memory of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives." I just had to watch Dawn of the Dead this month. As much as I love Night of the Living Dead, this is a perfect example of an amazing sequel to an already great movie. It's one of my top 5 favorite movies and I wasn't sure if that would change after re-visiting it again, but by the time it ended I was like "Yeah, it's still that "

"First viewing - July 17th Finding out Romero died knocked the wind out of my sails on Sunday, and I’d intended to watch this that night. Unfortunately when I went to my shelves it wasn’t there & at that point I remembered I’d loaned it to a friend who never gave it back. And at the time I looked for it it was after 8pm so there was nowhere I could go to find another copy that night. Thus I went out right after work Monday & was rewarded when I found a used copy for $10 that was signed by "

"13th of July, DVD Dawn of the Dead jatkaa siitä mihin edellinen jäi ja Romero menee tässä teoksessaan vieläkin pidemmälle: siinä missä Night of the Living Dead vakiinnutti zombie-elokuvat kauhugenren alalajina, Dawn of the Dead todisti ensimmäisen kerran miten paljon verta, suolenpätkiä ja ylenpalttista hupia voi aiheesta repiä. Tämän elokuvan gore on vanhentunut erittäin hyvin ja irtoraajat näyttävät reilusti inhottavammilta, mitä nykyajan CGI-splattereissä. Edeltäjänsä "
