ZOMBIE MOVIES – Day Of The Dead (2008)

Day of the Dead (2008) is a remake of George A. Romero’s 1985 film by the same name, and is exactly what a zombie movie should be. An outbreak takes place in a small town and the military is sent in to contain the infection, but things don’t go quite as planned.

Mena Suvari plays the main character, Sarah Bowman, who is dispatched back to her home town with her military unit to help contain whatever is going on in town.

Sarah, realizing that something bad may be going on, leaves her post to go check on her brother and mother. That sets off a chain reaction of events that lead to some of my favorite scenes in the movie.

Part of watching zombie movies is the desire to see the moment when the infection goes rampant and things go crazy. Day of the Dead did an awesome job of turning the hospital, and Sarah’s escape from it, into a violent orgy of zombie violence.

The makers of the movie understood the basic premise that George A. Romero was going for. Make people run, and those who don’t get eaten. It’s a basic principle that too many zombie movies forget.

If you haven’t seen Day of the Dead yet, I highly recommend it, the movie earned its 90/100.
