DAY OF THE DEAD (1985)

This film probably gets one of the biggest bum-raps in the history of cinema. In fact, it may be one of the most under-appreciated films in horror. It’s dismissed as “talky” and “slow”. Roger Ebert gave the film one and a half stars and said that Romero “should quit while he’s ahead.” This film is bleak, it’s a bit of a downer, but its also more thought provoking than it’s predecessors and makes you think about the course humanity seems so intent to be stuck on. This flick doesn’t skimp on the gore either, it has blood by the gallons. In fact, DAY OF THE DEAD probably has the best effects in the entire series (and some of the best in the genre for that matter). There’s a reason this is Romero’s personal favorite.

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
