Cult Movies and Horror movie directed by George A. Romero

George Romero's 1978 follow-up to his classicNight of the Living Deadis quite terrifying and gory (those zombies do like the taste of living flesh). But in its own way, it is just as comically satiric as the first film in its take on contemporary … see full wiki

**** out of ****     Now THIS is the kind of movie that earned George Romero the title as the "King of the Zombies", and I mean it. "Dawn of the Dead" is his masterpiece, among others. It arrives after "Night of the Living Dead" and continues from where that film left off. The dead walk the earth, as they should in every single zombie film in existence, but they do it in an odd, almost unique way here. Romero understands zombies, and he's one of the only filmmakers out there …

`Night of the Living Dead' was a great movie. It did so much with so little and knew when it needed to end. At about an hour and a half, it was the perfect length. It's understandably a classic in horror film history.    So why did George Romero follow that masterpiece up with this ridiculous masterpiece of overrated boring wreck?    The "social commentary" that people on this site rave about has been done before, and done better. Ok, I get that humans are …

I remembering when I saw this movie for the first time, it was about ten years ago. I can recall thinking "This is the "B"est movie I have ever seen".

The more I watched the movie, the more I began to develop an appreciation of how this movie was created.    George Romero had to wait until this …

DAWN OF THE DEAD follows the story that began in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Dead people are coming back to life as flesh eating zombies and no one really has any idea why. A small group of survivors, including a mall cop and a couple of news reporters, finds a refuge from the terror by boarding themselves up in a shopping mall. Zombies begin flocking to the mall in droves, but have no way of entering. Giving in to their every whim and desire, the group settles down to a fairly comfortable existence …

George A. Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" is legendary, a shocking, thrilling masterpiece of horror that continues to wow us over twenty years later. The second in Romero's Zombie Trilogy (the first was "Night of the Living Dead"), the film is set immediately after NOTLD, and involves a group of four strangers who find themselves trapped in a shopping mall full of the living dead. Romero knows how to make a horror film; his trilogy is arguably the greatest horror series ever made. "Dawn of the Dead" …
