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."

Night of the Living Dead (1968) Review

"Night of the Living Dead's social commentary on race couldn't be more obvious. Black actors simply did not get to play the lead role in a film featuring an otherwise all white cast.

They certainly were not allowed to play the articulate and capable hero who slaps the hysterical white woman and dominates the take charge white patriarchal figure. Ben does exactly all of those things in this film."
