Day of the Dead (1985) Review

"Romero is satirising a decade that ushered in 'me,me,me' politics. In Night and Dawn, there remained the faith that humanity will always (eventually) pull together. Day doesn't have that optimism: the humans are worn down and feel put out by the needs of their fellow survivors when they're thinking only of themselves. "

Dawn of the Dead (1978) Review

"The first 20 minutes are a vital component of [Dawn of the Dead] in my opinion. Most zombie films rush through the downfall of society part entirely. The viewer actually witnessing the death of human civilisation, provides some much needed context to proceedings. Firstly it provides the pathos of humanity's sad end, but it also shows how incapable humans are in the face of a major world changing crisis."
