The Day of the Dead is here!

  • May 17, 2009
Day of the Dead is the third film in the "Dead" series. For awhile this was going to be the last chapter until recent events have changed the mind of the series creator George A. Romero. Whilst it was going to be a huge budgeted venture for Romero and Laurel Films, a small budget and a few extras limited the scope of the director's vision for this film. But like all good film makers he made do with what he had around him and made a dreary and depressing film.

Society is dead. Zombies have overran the living and the survivors can only be found in very small numbers. One of these groups are bunkered inside an old underground bomb shelter. The survivors inside this subterranean military installation have been divided into three groups: the soldiers, scientists and civilian employees. Stress, sexual tension and a dire situation have split the group even further apart. The dead have been growing in numbers outside and dwindling supplies have made everyone desperate. But within the base their is some order. But what will happen when that collapses?

The third film of the series is not as great as the second film but it's a good film. Performances from the actors may be uneasy and the tight budget restrains the director's vision but it still succeeds as a very frightening and depressing horror film. Savini and company have made the gore more realistic and nauseating. Gone is the cartoonish blood and cheesy gore effects. State-of-the-art splatter effects have been included adding a whole new element to this awesome trilogy. I have to strongly recommend this film. If you love the first two, you'll definitely enjoy this this installment of the one and only trilogy of cinema!

Underrated, but a great Romero zombie flick. We also get to see Greg Nicotero before he becomes a SPFX legend...

Romero's greatest achievment
First George Romero gave us Night of the Livening Dead, which became the corner stone for an entire genera of horror films and gave birth to one of the most well known and recognized movie monsters in history, the zombie.       Then, in 1978 he its sequel, Dawn of the Dead, took the zombie film to a new level of horror and popularity. Full of satire and grotesque humor Dawn of the Dead became the inspiration for many a zombie film to follow and threw Romero into the spotlight …
