Matt Nida’s review:
Well obviously it's a stone-cold classic, but watching it on the big screen alongside the other two entries in the "proper" Romero zombie trilogy was a fascinating experience. The kinetic camerawork sits marvellously at odds with the grainy, black and white photography, and this time round the news bulletins stood out as a particularly impressive touch. The film lapses a tiny bit into melodrama during the second half, and the acting isn't quite universally strong enough to keep the tension at boiling point all the way through, but these are very minor nitpicks in one of the most important films ever made. But then, you knew that already.
