Day of the Dead (also known as George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead) is a 1985 horror film by director George A. Romero, the third of Romero’s Dead Series of zombie horror films.
Director George A. Romero describes the film as a “tragedy about how a lack of human communication causes chaos and collapse even in this small little pie slice of society”.
The living have lost the war and now the dead have taken over. A small pocket of survivors consisting of a military and scientific team is staying in a secure underground bunker doing research, trying to find an answer to why the dead are walking, and also trying to find any other survivors, but without much success.
This movie was truly ahead of its time, especially for horror and zombie genres. The dialogues are convincingly real and the cast is very well put.
The special effects by Tom Savini are truly outstanding and the scenes where Dr. Logan (Richard Liberty) tries to train a zombie are simply amazing.
Basically, if you are a true zombie fan, there isn’t much more to say here, it is truly another masterpiece from the father of the zombie genre, the one and only George A. Romero. A must see!
What can we say except: ROMERO IS THE KING!
