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.

Everything you want and expect in a Romero film. Decent level of gore, straight forward plot. Ahead of it’s time and set the standard. 🖤🧟♂️
Another good Romero film. Special effects are a 1980s classic. Think Thriller zombies. Interesting dynamics of what humans are like under pressure. Also, Bub is interesting. In George A Romero's Land of the Dead (2005) the concept of Bub, an intelligent zombie is followed through.
over-acting at its finest, but the 80's screamer? Perfect! LOVED BUB. THAT SALUTE! In a word - great!
Not a game changer like the first two but it is my favorite.
OH. MY. JESUS... JUST-.. Okay, okay.. yeah, not as good as Night or Dawn.. BUT JESUS CHRIST, THIS IS GOOD! JUST-.. WATCH IT FOR THE SPECIAL EFFECTS ALONE!
