Dawn of the Dead

I’m trying to understand why zombies have flooded the horror genre, so I figured I’d watch Dawn of the Dead (2004). It’s the remake of the movie of the same name from 1978, the second in George A. Romeo’s zombie franchise. Even after seeing this, I’m still not sure about them.

Dawn of the DeadThe fact that this movie went from 0 to 100 quickly was a plus for me. There is so much that I do like about zombie films. However, at the same time, I just shake my head and wonder how many times you can do the same thing. The ‘why are you doing that/going in there?’ moments are great; seriously, what the fuck did you expect to happen? The good ole fashioned sphincter puckers are amazing, then add in the musical score that cinches it for me.

I couldn’t tell you if I’ve seen the original, so I don’t know if the similarities to the Night of the Comet (1984) are because it used stuff from the 1978 film or if the remake stole from Night of the Comet. I guess it doesn’t matter, especially when Max Headroom (Matt Frewer) arrives; if you’re confused, there isn’t a character named Max Headroom in this movie, see the 80s for more information.

The gore effects and make-up are beyond awesome, and probably the highlight of this entire film, but that’s not to say there aren’t other great things, for instance, fast zombies. I never understood in other films how slow ones survived besides having sheer numbers to trap the living.

3.5 Stars

While I did like Dawn of the Dead, I can’t give it more than 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
