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

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was really eager to check it out again. Well, 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 thought it was really great though. Sure, I did like how it was sharp with a nice combination of horror, humor and satirical critic on our consumerist ... read more

"And Day of the Dead "

veganwarrior posted a review 4 months, 2 weeks ago

“"Dawn of the Dead" is not simply an extension of George A. Romero's debut "Night of the Living Dead", it is a complete overhaul, expanding on every aspect of the original whilst retaining a low-budget sensibility without diminishing the quality of the production. However, the main premise remains: social order has once again collapsed with the inexplicable reanimation of corpses. Rural communities are not overrun but the urban centres are swarming with zombie hordes all returning to the places instinctive to them. Crucially, this distinguishes "Dawn of the Dead" from its predecessor. "Night of the Living Dead" concentrated its action on an isolated rural house and limited the number of zombies, whereas "Dawn of the Dead" consolidates its activity within the confines of a shopping mall, thu” read more

"Whether he knew it or not, George A. Romero was working toward Dawn of the Dead throughout the 1970s, his ambitions crystallizing into an operatic, seamy, tragic and trashy horror-action canvas. The film dramatizes cycles of revolution, following working-class characters as they get a taste of rarefied life, walling themselves off from the populace, in the traditions of our political leaders and celebrities, and resenting the people who come clawing at the gates for a taste of the wealth.
