Somewhat heavy handed on its social commentary at times, but generally good. Also groundbreaking in moving zombie movies from horror to science fiction.

It was an interesting movie. A mall is a good place to get stuck at during the zombie apocalypse lol.

Classic classic classic!!! They could make a modern day zombie movie like this today but I think instead of takin' it slow and low they try to out do the last one..... wrong move....I wish I had the money (as many of you guys do)to make a classic like this! Long live zombies lol! Oh, and long live tom savini!!!

This one sets the standard for others to follow. The makeup is low-tech and other aspects of the movie had to overcome the low budget, but the story and the characters make up for it.

Dawn of the Dead should only be remembered one way.......As the ORIGINAL 1979 version! Don't get me wrong the remake was a good horror film but it did not do the 1979 version any justice. If you are not familiar with the trilogy then know that Dawn of the Dead is a sequel to the cult classic "Night of the Living Dead." Zombie or "Ghoul" flicks have always been my favorite horror genre and this flick will make you like them too. The cool thing about Dawn of the Dead is that you can really identify with this film, it plays out just as life probably would if an outbreak of "ghouls" ever really occurred. The film follows 4 people that steal a news chopper and go to the town shopping mall to hide out until the world gets back under control. Now with the mall comes a built in gun store, an arcade, bank, food, clothing, tools and an ice skating rink.....is just about the perfect place to barricade yourself from ghouls. The gore and zombies are just great including the famous Machete Zombie scene and helicopter blade scene. Also the plot is decent, the acting is meager........This is probably one of the best "zombie" movies of all time. Do not judge the remake of Dawn of the Dead to the original they are very different films.....the characters are not the same and the overall atmosphere is different. Yes they both take place in a shopping mall while the "dead" are walking but other then that they do not have a lot in common. Romero is still THE KING!

Damn good zombie movie really raw surprised the votes are that low maybe for some people if they haven't seen it before they don't like it because of the effects or whatever but to me its another one of them movies that never gets old.

Man does that music at the end really get stuck fast in my head. Will be humming it for days now. This is a rare movie i actually liked the "remake" of. I think its because I like the guy who wrote it, James Gunn, also responsible for Slither.
