5.0 out of 5 stars Apocalyptic horror from the grand master of horror directors, 2 Mar 2001
This review is from: Day Of The Dead [DVD] [1986] (DVD)
Despite being dismissed by many critics as a mere excercise in splatter, Day Of The Dead is, put simply, the best zombie film ever made; in some ways surpassing even Romero's own achievements on the other classic films in the series, Night Of the Living Dead and Dawn Of the Dead. It is a much more mature and intelligent film than the others in the series, and has loftier goals.
When the film opens, humanity is effectively lost, it's few representatives outnumbered as they are by several hundred thousand to one in favour of the walking dead. Only a few scientists and their military protectors survive, huddled into a missile silo in Florida, where they work to find some sort of defense against the marauding threat. It is of course hopeless, but there may be a glimmer of hope left, if they can find a way to domesticate the zombies.
How many horror films have the guts to start the film by saying, 'It's all over. There ain't no going back'? This one sure does.
Exceptional writing and directing from George A. Romero, gruesome effects from the maestro, Tom Savini and wonderful acting from Lori Cardille, Joe Pilato, Gary Klar and the late Richard Liberty this is the horror DVD that no self-respecting fan of the genre can afford to be without.
