Rating: 5/5 -- This excellent slice of horror from Romero deals with the head-butting elements of science and military in a world ravaged by the zombie virus. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- The years have been kind to Day Of The Dead, however...And though it's still a disappointment in relation to its two predecessors, it has much to recommend it. Full Review

...Affords [Romero] the opportunity for intermittent philosophy and satire, without compromising his reputation as the grisliest guy around...

4 stars out of 5 -- Less suspense-action-oriented than the earlier films, DAY is intelligently gruesome...

Product Description:

The third chapter in the saga that director George Romero started in 1968 with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD moves the story further along the timeline of the zombie apocalypse to a time when survivors are few and far between. At an underground Florida research station, Dr. Logan (Richard Liberty) conducts grotesque experiments on captured zombies to search for a way that the living and the living dead can cohabitate. Begrudgingly sharing the facility with the doctor is military man Rhodes (Joe Pilato) and his underlings. Scientist Sarah (Lori Cardille) and her fellow survivors seek refuge at the compound just in time to see a clash between Logan and Rhodes reach a critical turning point.

DAY OF THE DEAD stands as the most controversial film in the series. While some feel that its confined, talky nature prevents it from achieving the constant white-knuckle thrills of the previous two films, others admire its strides toward figuring out what drives the zombies. Regardless, the third act features the most extreme and well-executed special effects in the series, with several gory sequences that will leave an undeniable impression on those who witness them.

Plot Synopsis:

DAY OF THE DEAD, part three of George Romero's zombie trilogy, has the putrid man-eating creatures out in full-force and taking over the world, while a group of surviving soldiers and scientists bicker in a military bunker.


Production Notes:

  • The original script written by George Romero concerned an actual trained army of zombies being commanded by an insane Florida tyrant, but budget restrictions made it unfilmable.
  • The members of the rock band NRBQ appear in the film as zombies.
