Day of the Dead ★★★★

My first Romero film and it didn't disappoint.

Romero combines clever commentary about military masculinity and Reaganomics with legitimately nauseating VFX make-up courtesy of gore maestro Tom Savini. The performances are over the top but they fit the time period this was made. The heros are likeable and you love to hate the villains. Captain Rhodes played by Joe Pilato is a particular highlight.

Bub is Hollywood's most loveable zombie.
