Finally a PROPER zombie movie.,

This review is from: The Dead [DVD] (DVD)
Whilst I am a lover the tongue in cheek, dispatch them in amusing ways type of zombie movie (which is definitely the way Romero has been going), this harks back to the bleak apocalyptic style that packs so much more punch. So real in the execution that I was barely aware of any acting going on, it was more like watching horrifying reality. All the make-up and effects looked real and being set in such an unusual location lent the whole thing an air of the unknown and dread. Fans of things like Resident Evil will not like the lack of slam bang action but if you like the original Dawn Of The Dead or 28 days later I think you will be gripped, there plenty of intense and gory scenes. The jump frights are genuinely "throw you back in you seat in terror" moments rather then "make you jump then giggle" types. Beautifully shot from start to finish and very powerful. Well done to everyone involved and thanks for such a brilliant ending that actually made me gasp with emotion.
