    Zack Snyder’s 2004 remake of the classic George A. Romero zombie movie “Dawn of the Dead” was a milestone in many ways. It helped launch Snyder’s career and has since directed “300” and “Watchmen”. “Dawn” is a spectacular remake, some say better that the original. It introduced us to the fast, sprinting zombies. It did however also help set in motion the trend of remaking every old horror they could dig up no matter how bad it is.

    “Dawn” follows…

    Well now, this movie kicked about 1,800 different varieties of ass. Everything was just horror-movie-perfect. Nothing was too overdone. It wasn't about showing death in many new and fashionable ways. It was just plain cool. The soundtrack was perfectly awesome. I mean, a lounge-act cover of Disturbed's "The Sickness"? Inspired! If you go see this movie, stay for the credits. If you don't, you'll think the movie ended totally differently than it actually does. I wanna see it again!!

    Like the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the idea of this film took a bit of getting used to at first. The original Dawn is a classic, and knowing that George Romero has a script for the fourth in that series, why would anyone wanna spend money on redoing what was already done instead of funding him?

    Well, despite all of that, this movie is a blast. While the first was groundbreaking and had more social commentary inlaid, this is much…

    My favorite zombie movie of all time (after Shaun of the Dead, but that one is just a comedy). Review coming soon.

    This is one of those remakes that I wanted to hate so badly when it was first announced. When I eventually saw it, I loved it. I'd even say it's the best remake of the 2000's. The opening credit sequence is one of my favorites. I love that they took the original idea of characters trapped in a mall during a zombie outbreak but then created a totally fresh story around it.

    This is the movie that made me just stop blindly hating modern remakes before seeing it for myself. I wanted to hate it from the moment I heard it was being made. Remaking the greatest movie ever made? Blasphemy. I ended up loving it though. They did what I think good remakes do...you take the central idea (ie zombies / mall) and then make your own movie.

    Die ganz obere Liga des erwachsenen Filmvergnügens. Ein unverwüstliches Setting, Anarchie an allen Ecken und der Untergang der Menschheit, wie er bei einer Zombieapokalypse wohl nicht unterhaltsamer laufen könnte. Überzeugende Schauspieler und eine bis zum letzten Schnitt spannende Story sorgen dafür, dass dieser Film mich auch beim mittlerweile nicht mehr gezählten, wiederholten schauen immer noch grandios unterhält.
