MM/SKM: Zombies

(NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD)--THE MOVIE THAT STARTED IT ALL-- WERE WOULD HORROR MOVIES BE TODAY IF THIS WAS NEVER MADE???: Where do I start with zombies? The dead people who are back to eat the brains of the living is still a pop culture phenomenon today. For me, George Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead brought zombies to a whole new level. We don’t even hear them once be called zombies by name. All we know is that there are a group of people hiding out in a farm house from the zombies after seeing what they had done to others. With much speculation being in radiation poisoning or something like that, we have no idea what brought the zombies back from the dead to kill. In Night of the Living Dead we never actually actually know what is going to happen to the rest of the world as the credits roll.

DAWN OF THE DEAD  ★★★★★★ of George A. Romero Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.Still one of the best Zombie movies ever: In 1978 horror film, Dawn of the Dead we are introduced to zombies in a different way again. We watch them as they take over a mall eating people one by one. The only difference is, that this time they move in pacts. This time the heroes have a way of escaping the zombies. This time there isn’t even an explanation as to what brought the zombies back this time. All we know is that there was a mysterious phenomena that happened that caused it them to reanimate. The zombies don’t come off as dangerous in this movie because of how slow they move. They are much easier to get away from this time.
