The final chapter of George A. Romero's "Dead Trilogy". In an underground government installation they are searching for a cure to overcome this strange transformation into zombies. Unfortunately, the zombies from above ground have made their way into the bunker.
The zombies will stop at nothing for juicy human flesh! And if you get in their way, your Achilles tendon will become their floss!
Day of the Dead is without a doubt the strongest installment in the Trilogy of the Dead. Yes, you heard that right, it's the best one yet. What a gorefest! This marks my first time watching it and needless to say, it will also be my last. There is no way in hell would I want to re-experience the dread this film has cast on me, no fucking way. Never had I encountered a film this intense, this emotionally draining. Oh jesus, mary, and joseph, my head hurts! The climatic…
Romero's Dawn of the Dead is in the horror movie history books for being a great zombie film that mixed social commentary with monster movie horror and gore. While I love that film, it's sequel, Day of the Dead, is where my heart truly lies. This is the ultimate zombie movie in my eyes. It's human characters just as destructive as it's monsters. And a zombie who has memories of it's past, the greatest zombie to grace the screen, Bub. And also featuring my favorite gore effects in movie history.
Day takes place in a vast underground facility where our characters, a mix of military and scientist types, try to survive while also studying the zombies and possibly find a…
Tom Savini, a special makeup effects genius. T-Dog's Jamaican uncle. A drunk guy who can shoot straight. Bub the world's smartest Zombie. Romero doing what he does best: Making a zombie film not about zombies, but about raw human emotion. Romero's most underrated film.
Another really damn good zombie film from George A. Romero. In my opinion this is just as good as the other two films in the trilogy. It's darker, more serious, and has more tension than the predecessors. The special effects in this movie are nothing sort of magnificent, especially considering that this was made 30 years ago.
Day of the Dead might just be my favorite of the trilogy.
Is this the results you've been talking about? Is this what your research is all about? Make them do tricks? Train them like dogs?
While George Romero has said it was his favorite of the Dead films, most fans feel quite differently. Day of the Dead, the bastard step-child of Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, grows on me more and more with each viewing. I'm now convinced it would be a masterpiece of sorts if it wasn't for some questionable acting sprinkled through out.
Surprisingly it isn't Joseph Pilato's larger then life portrayal of Captain Rhodes that bothers me. In fact I think he's one of the highlights of the film. When you…
When Bub first cocks the gun, it's one of the great "oh shit" moments in a movie and I love how it pushes Romero's trilogy to a boiling point, a zombie metamorphosis. Sequels should always, always, always aim to evolve ideas set up previously, whether it be social commentary or makeup effects or literally the zombies themselves. In a perfect world, a sequel flips the pillow to the cold side, flexes new muscles, and re-configures what you thought to be possible. Romero's trilogy beautifully follows this through. Each installment is a flip of the pillow.
In an ideal world, Romero would of directed Land or Island of the dead somewhere in the 90s and it would of been just as great as his first three in the Dead trilogy but sadly he waited even longer and we didn't quite get the film we should have. I haven't seen the last two entries in the series but for me, the series ends here and what a perfect end it is. One of the smartest horror films I think I've ever seen.
I hadn't seen this one in years and remembered not liking it as much as Dawn because of how slow it is. My tastes have obviously changed because I watched it again today and loved it, more than Dawn actually.

I really appreciate the way Romero's Dead Trilogy tells the story of the zombie apocalypse from three totally disparate perspectives rather than trying to be one continuous story. It really is one of the best ways to approach a story on this scale. I also love the way these films serve as a sort of theoretical experiment that places human nature under pressure. And that not everyone reacts the same! Some break down. Some of those breakdowns are violent and destructive to those around them, others become nearly catatonic. And still…
A messy movie, both literally and figuratively. It's got a lot of poorly written dialogue and badly paced scenes, but Day is still very entertaining with how strange and over-the-top most of it is. Also featuring one of the most iconic zombie-related death scenes ever.
After Night and Dawn, Day of the Dead is a big step up in gore/effects and an even bigger step down in everything else. There is too much overacting from the soldiers, which only works if everyone is on board...but the scientist side is playing it more straight, so its just offputting. There are also way too many scenes where too much talking is going on while nothing happens...even a great final 20 minutes can't put this one over the top.
Big shoes to fill.
A group of military men and a group of desperate scientists are holed up in an underground missile silo while the zombie population keeps on rising.
Some interesting plot points, and the music and makeup effects hit all time high's for this already reputable franchise, but a dreary setting and too many lengthy scenes of a cast that overacts and shouts depletes it.
Could have been better.

I still think Day of the Dead is the weakest of Romero's original zombie trilogy, but I liked it significantly more this time. It had been a long time since I watched this one, so it was in need of a fresh viewing. I like the view of the world presented in this one. The survivors have reached the point in time where they realize that it's fairly impossible to just kill all of the zombies. So...what should they do now? The answer is assimilation. What if they can learn to live with the zombies...or better yet teach the zombies to live with them? That very question gives us what is probably the greatest zombie in film history -- the…
My favorite zombie film of all time! Rewatch this time with the secondary Roger Avery commentary track.
Can't tell if satire or not.
Working on adding notes for all of them.
Almost any movie directed…
