no offence to anyone who likes this movie but i just cant take this movie seriously its not scary at all and doesn't looks realistic at all I'm sure it was amazing in its time but i just don't find this very good i was bored the whole way through the acting was not the best I've seen but i gotta say it did set the trend for the rest of the zombie flicks. I'm pretty sure this comment is gonna get a whole lots of thumb downs but i don't care... anyway yea... i like the remake better mostly due to the fact that all the effects, makeup, gore , and acting where better.

Really tried to get into this but it did nowhere draw me in and mesmerize me as Romero's first and best work. Have you guys checked out "Brain Dead", the New Zealand horror comedy flick? That is a gory and funny classic.

Slow zombies are the best. This movie is the zombie Bill of Rights.

It's so sad that people don't seem to enjoy the great classics anymore. All they want is the overrated, unrealisticly gorey trash that the film companies spew out every other month. I love this movie far more than the remake. You really can't complain about the special effects either. This was created in 1978 and everything about it was considered top-knotch back then. Don't get all worked up over my comment, it's only my opinion.

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!
