"That's the trouble with the world, Sarah darlin'. People got different ideas concernin' what they want out of life."

the best of the bunch. night is too cheesy and old, dawn is too long and boring, land is obvious and diary is too youtube, day of the dead has it all. from zombies that shoot guns to extreme gore to crazy experiments to a bunch of other stuff. watch it. don't beleive the hype.

A good movie

After watching the 2 first zombie movies directed by Romero, I was just really eager to finish the trilogy. Honestly, this sequel is obviously not as strong as its predecessors but I still enjoyed it. The best part, for me, is that all 3 movies are distinctively different in their look and also in their approach on the zombies. Furthermore, I think it is pretty neat that there is about a decade be... read more

"22.07.2015 Katselinpa tästä Arrowin Blu-rayn, joka totuttuun tapaan oli parasta a-luokkaa. Itse elokuva on vielä monen katselukerran jälkeenkin helvetin kova. Bunkkeri on klaustrofobisen painajaismainen miljöö, jossa tunteet ihan oikeutetusti käyvät kuumina. Siihen kun vielä lisätään Savinin järkyttävän upeat tehosteet, niin aikaan saadaan kulttileffa, joka jää vain piirun verran trilogian muista osista. Arrowin julkaisun mukana muuten tuli sarjakuva, joka kertoi Bubin tarinan."

2015 Horror Journal (134 movies items)

" I have finally finished George Romero's "Dead" franchise with what I have found to be the best film in the series. Day Of The Dead was initially meant to cap off the trilogy begun by Night and as so, Romero wanted it to be his most epic and more importantly most brutal zombie endeavor yet. Sadly he has sullied the franchise's name since with a slew of misguided sequels (although Land was actually good), but Day would have been a great send-off. I'm surprised that this is the lowest-rated film "

"23.2, Netflix Dawnin jälkeen oli aika vaikea pistää paremmaksi, mutta omalla tavallaan Day ei lopputuloksena kovin kauaksi jää. Tämä tuo ehkä hieman alleviivaavasti, mutta kuitenkin suhteellisen tehokkaasti esille (jälleen) sen, miten ihminen on susi toiselle ihmiselle. Hahmoissa on tarvittavaa syvyyttä ja kahden ihmisryhmän väliset konfliktit täten mielenkiintoista seurattavaa, vaikka hahmot tyypillisiä ovatkin. Musiikkivalinnat ovat sopivan raikasta kuunneltavaa niinkuin ajankuv"

Insanely violent zombie extravaganza!

“"That's the trouble with the world, Sarah darlin'. People got different ideas concernin' what they want out of life."

The third instalment in George A. Romero's zombie franchise, Day of the Dead was intended to be the Gone with the Wind of Romero's filmography. However, the budget was cut from $7 million to $3.5 million due to all the blood and gore, as it was doubtful that the film would be allowed to get away with an R rating. The original script was significantly changed as a consequence, especially the ending, and Romero was ultimately unable to achieve his initial vision. But while Day of the Dead had the potential to be a genuinely epic zombie extravaganza, the finished movie is hard to dislike. When the budget was cut, Romero mainly chose to trim the character stuff, using” read more

"October 23 Even though this is not as good as the first two movies, it is still entertaining. I liked where the movie took place and Tom Savini's special effects are great as always."

"11.10.2012 "Choke on 'em! Choke on 'em!" I liked this better than Dawn of the Dead. It had a slow start, but when it finally kicks off it got really good. The effects were also great in this film. So much better than the zombies in Dawn that were just painted gray most of the time. "
