Romero's Masterpiece

Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" was the first zombie film to portray the staggering, lumbering masses as we know them today: grotesque, mindless, with a hunger for flesh. It took a while, but it was eventually embraced, by both the critics and box office. It was a horror unlike anything ever seen, but in my view, its greatness was surpassed by its sequel (something rarely seen), "Dawn of the Dead."

A continuation of the story, but not the characters, Dawn picks up the action with an escalation of the zombie chaos. Large cities have been overrun, and TV stations are broadcasting rescue stations for viewers. Two of the reporters, Steven and Fran, vow to get out of the big cities and search for refuge, and they are aided by SWAT members Roger and Peter. The four hole up in a shopping mall, a new concept for the late 1970's, and begin to slowly remove all of the walking undead from their new palace.

What follows, to be brief, and not spoil the joy for the viewers, is Romero's proto-consumerist view of how human beings handle a crisis of this magnitude, what happens when our societies break down, and how we handled such a breakdown, and the characters of ourselves is revealed.

Many scenes of unadulterated gore, but the savvy cinema-phile will appreciate the hokey soundtrack, real acting, the on-the-fly direction, and he or she will also begin to identify with the situation, which is Romer's true aim. A fun adventure, a goofy romp, and a serious character study and indictment of our consumerist culture. The dead will walk...
