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

"Re-watch - July 4th OK, so I spent most of July 2-4 at the local Living Dead Weekend horror convention. It's hosted by the Living Dead Museum here in Pennsylvania, and celebrates Romero's films as well as those related to it. So there were cast and crew members from Night, Dawn, Day and Return of the Living Dead present to meet fans, sign autographs, and discuss the films via panels all weekend long. On top of that there was the option to sign up for a guided tour of the mall where this film wa"

"18.1. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Pitkä 'Cannes cut'. Se minulle tutuin ja mahdollisesti jatkossakin se "go to" -versio. Internetin fanipojat sanovat tässä olevan vähemmän Goblinia, kuin teatteriversiossa, mutta en kyllä allekirjoita. Taisi olla tuossa Document of the Deadissä maininta, että Dawn koostuu Romerolle joinkuin ominaisesti huomattavan lyhyistä otoista ja toden totta, harvassa on yli kahden tai kolmen sekunnin otot. Kovin usein en tällaisesta niin perusta (tai luultavammin ku"

I haven't watched this movie in the last 10+ years because there is no way to watch the movie in HD unless you want to pay a lot of money for an old out-of-print Blu-Ray. Dawn of the Dead is a movie that always left an impact on me ever since I first saw it as a "

"28.11. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Yhdysvaltain teatteriversio. Romeron itsensä preferoima versio ja ainoa kolmesta, jota en ollut aiemmin nähnyt, joten aika selkeä valinta paluulle. Halloweenin toimiessa uuden ajanlaskun merkkinä vuonna 2003, merkitsi Dawn of the Dead vuotta myöhemmin myös jonkin näköistä kulminaatiopistettä harrastuksessa. Pienestä putkitelkkarista katsottuna vanhat Future Filmin levittämät DVD:t olivat vielä joinkuin katselukelpoisia (olisko kymmenisen kertaa lyh"

"And Day of the Dead "

“"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
