Great sequels are still hard to come by, especially one that's as good as or better than the original. Dawn of the Dead is one of those few movies and as much as I love Night, I love Dawn more. Dawn one-ups Night in about every way; the social commentary is more relatable to a mass audience (consumerism, I believe), tons more action, violence and gore,which is what most people think about when they think of this movie. It's wildly bloody and comes off like a comic book, which was intended and the bright red blood amplifies that. This film is exploding with gore, guts, brains and body parts everywhere. Tom Savini did an amazing job making the zombies look not only somewhat cartoonish, but also graphic lyrics disturbing. It also has some of the best characters that are relatable and as they spend time stuck in the mall, they start to rest each other. For the most part, they act rationally except for Roger who acts dumb at some parts to move the plot along or one of the bikers at the end who keeps putting his arm in a blood pressure test, but it makes for a cool gag. Unlike Barbara in Night, Fran is more empowered and demands to be treated equal and is basically one of the men (I don't mean that in a sexist way). The film really shows you that even though some place can seem like a paradise, it can also become like a prison. Actually, I think Fran outright says this. Oh, and I can't forget Goblin's score, which makes this a super unique soundtrack for a '70s horror film. It's haunting and weird at times, yet it fits this film, a groundbreaking, super violent and smart zombie flick, perfectly. It's one of the most perfect horror films out there. #nowwatching #nowplaying #dawnofthedead #georgeromero #kenforee #davidemge #gaylenross #scotthreiniger #anchorbay #laurelgroupproduction #horror #horrormovie #horrorfilm #70shorror #zombies #dvd #dvdreview #moviereview #moviecritic #filmreview #filmcritic #cinephile #1977 #goonreviewsdawnofthedead
Clip of our final panorama from this weekends workshop with @liam_y - PANORAMAS OF THE POST-HUMAN CITY. Downtown Manhattan is flooded. What was once a nerve center of finance and banking, now becomes home to a community of subsistent oyster gleaners and fisherman/fisherwoman. While the wealthy and powerful move to higher, drier ground, those that remain survive by harvesting barnacles and shellfish. These creatures latch themselves onto the skeleton of the former city, and digest the filth of past extravagance.
