      Dawn of the Dead (1978) is George A. Romero’s sequel to his classic zombie film Night of the Living Dead (1968). Romero ups the ante in this sequel, which may in fact be better than the original.

      In Dawn of the Dead, zombies have overrun much of the country. A SWAT team raiding an apartment

      Two SWAT team members, Roger and Peter, meet up with Francine, the director, and her boyfriend, Stephen, the air traffic reporter for the station. The four head ...

      • out in the station’s news helicopter seeking refuge from the zombie epidemic. They eventually hole up in an abandoned shopping mall, and try to sruvive as the zombies move ever closer to taking over the mall.

        Dawn of the Dead is an enthralling film. It has its share of blood and guts, but none it over the top or excessive. The characters are well-developed, and acted equally as well.

        As he did with Night of the Living Dead, George Romero has again commented satirically on society in this film. This time, issues of the 1970s are addressed, such as greed and materialism. Romero also sets numerous subplots against the zombie background, resulting in a movie that is captivating on many levels.

        Dawn of the Dead is one of my personal favorite films, and I would definitely recommend it to viewers.
