    Dawn of the Dead

    ★★★★★

    My all time favorite horror film. Yeah, it's a bit sloppy in its filming and editing, but that's part of the charm. The performances are all fantastic, the writing is solid in both its satirical commentary on consumerism and society in general, and its well fleshed out characters put this on a level all its own in the realm of gorefests.

    Simply amazing.

    It's been so long since I've seen this movie that my opinion going into this viewing probably came more from overall opinions than anything.

    This movie is a disasterpiece of the highest order. Made by amateur filmmakers who then sold it to Japanese distributors four years later who made alterations, the lost-in-translation and unprofessional touches combine to make it feel like it was made by aliens in a desperate attempt to cash in on the 80's slasher boom.

    Incomprehensible motives, jarring editing, off-putting homophobia, and the most attempts at an ending to one film since The Return Of The King, it's a mile-a-minute cavalcade of shit, and I love it.
