Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead

Directed by George Romero

After a zombie apocalypse, scientists attempt to reverse the reanimation process and train zombies to abstain from eating people. But this being one of George Romero's films, the scientists and military enforcers at the underground lab facility soon wind up in deep trouble. As with his previous two zombie films, Romero inserts a commentary on the decade it was made - the '80s - connecting the walking dead to the homeless, the poor and people with AIDS. Controversial on its release, DOTD later found a group of champions who consider it one of Romero's best.

The final film in Romero's original trilogy features some of the best zombie makeup and gore special effects of all time. Day of the Dead is an underrated classic! R.I.P. George Romero - R.I.P. Joe Pilato

You came here for the classic zombie kills. Stay for the surprisingly engaging story leading up to them.

Classic. It takes GUTS to write a zombie movie with this much HEART and BRAINS. (Mmmm, braaaains.)
