Dawn of the Dead

Released - 1978
Genre - Horror, Thriller, Drama
Director - George A. Romero
Starring - David Emge, Ken Foree, Scott H. Reiniger, Gaylen Ross, David Crawford, David Early

Dawn of the Dead is Romero's sequel to Night of the Living Dead and follows the adventures of four friends who barricade themselves in a mall and attempt to wait out the zombie epidemic. Besieged by wave after wave of undead and then a crazy biker gang their struggle is a desperate one to say the least. This is a fantastic film which works on several levels as a human drama, a black comedy, a satirical comment on consumer society and of course as a seriously gory horror. For me this is still the undisputed heavyweight champion of the zombie genre.

Gore - this is the film that made Tom Savini famous as he delivers incredible scenes of gruesome carnage too numerous to list

Zombies - these are the greatest zombies, slow and shambling with an unquenchable thirst for human flesh, many of them show signs of their previous life
