Perhaps it is a little bit overrated, but I still like to think of Romero's 1978 zombie film as genre defining and a classic that all horror fans should see. It's not for everyone, but if you like zombie movies then this is the quintessential film of this category.
It's rubbish. I turned it off after 20 minutes.
the best zombie movie ever made
best damn movie ever.. EVVVERRRRRR EVERERERERERE! Thou shall be not mad thou shall be horrified thou shall be forever mortified by the awesomeness that is george romero
George A Romero - what a Legend! Even back in the 70's the SFX were outstanding. Watching his earlier movies before viewing his more recent remakes is a must for hard-core Zombie movie fans. And as usual, the bonus extras are just so fascinating.
Not worth watching. Bad movie
lf you are a fan of this genere you will enjoy this, looks and feels a little old but still a great comedy experience.
You've got to love Romero's increasingly inaccurate trilogy with their contemporary commentaries. Where will consumerism end? What's the point of keeping up with the Joneses when there are no Joneses? What will be left for the Zombies if humans perish? Romero like all good story tellers should leave you wondering, if that's too much to bear, don't fret, there's plenty of gore and violence.
This is the classic of Zombie movies, genuinely scary and believable with the way the survivors hold up in a department store and have the instinct to hide out and make some sort of life again after the disaster. Top movie from the master George A Romero. A must see for all horror buffs. Brilliant.
The best zombie movie ever. Be sure to see Night Of The Living Dead first. Then this one, Dawn Of The Dead. After that See Day Of The Dead.
Top movie for it's time, truly should be a classic.
An all-time cult classic by the master himself, george A. Romero.
The doco on the DVD is a must-see in itself...
Best fantasy for having a shopping mall all to yourself. Not meant to be scary. Good comedy.
Excellent film, that redefined the genre of zombie films. Lots of gore (sensational special effects considering it was made in 1978), that would never get approved by a producer now in the current era. Great acting, particularly from the scores of extras who played the zombies, and a gang of real life bikies. Very good documentary (if a bit long), in the extra also, made in 2004, that has interviews with all key players.
Many films, including recent titles such as 28 Days Later, have used concepts from this classic. A must see for any horror or thriller fan.
Outdated. Special effects poor in comparison to todays. Remake better. I was laughing through the whole movie because it wasn't scary at all!
