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.

This movie bores me to tears until the fantastic ending. I’ve always had mixed feelings about this one.

This is probably my least favorite of the original George Romero Dead trilogy, though it is the most important in setting the stage for what the zombies would become in movies like "Land of the Dead". The acting is bad, The best performance is probably Sherman Howard as the zombie they call "Bub". Tom Savini's gore effects at the end really save this movie and make it rewatchable.
