    Best zombie film ever made. Zack really is a master of visual panache and his debut film perfectly exemplified that.

    Ten years down the line the running dead have not aged well at all. In fact the only reason to sit through this puff piece is a few decent gore bits and Sarah Polley's performance. But the real tragedy is not that they remade a perfect film, it's that it gave Zack Snyder a career in movies.

    Scary and thrilling. I don't generally watch horror films, but I loved this one.

    The second viewing of this leaves me even less impressed. Even the opening fifteen minutes, which seemed energetic and apocalyptic at first glance feel like a cheap violation of the "rules" of zombie behavior that are later established. It's tempting to be forgiving that the film isn't scary at all -- and is occasionally kind of lame -- now, since I'm re-watching it, but the other Dead films hold up nicely enough that I can't help judge this more harshly.

    Not as satirical as the original.
    Feels more like an action zombie movie than a horror zombie film.
    Sarah Polley is pretty awful in the lead role.
    Not much character development.
    It's a bloody fun time.
    It's got some witty and dark sense of humor.
    There's some creative set pieces.
    The truly palpable relationship was between Ving Rhames' character and the character of Andy.
    There's a badass dog in it.
    And Zack Snyder showed some promise with this film.

    Um filme cliché de zombies, tem tudo o que é preciso para as pessoas sentirem compaixão pelas personagens, mas os zombies ficam aquém do esperado... é claro que ainda não havia The Walking Dead, para seguir de modelo, mas para um serão de tarde ou para amantes de zombies é um filme agradável de se ver!

    As far as horror remakes go, I consider this second only to John Carpenter's The Thing. It's one of my go-to's if I wanted to watch something gory and fun. While it doesn't hold the social commentary Romero's original Dawn had, it replaces it with big horror action, amazing practical effects and a great cast who find themselves holed up in a mall during the zombie apocalypse.

    At the time of Dawn of the Dead's release (I didn't see it…

    Still lots of chaotic fun in the opening! Man oh man, I want more of that. The Andy character is a great addition to their story. Let's talk more about this in person.

    Fun, silly, decently gory if not at all scary, and further proof that a mall is the best place to go in a zombie apocalypse.

    Dawn of the Dead is a really fun zombie horror comedy film with a fun concept and cool zombie effects and a great ending.
