Shitting over Romero's legacy to sell a bad film.
"If you have ever seen an Umberto Lenzi film before, then you know what to expect. The director cut his teeth making giallo films in the 70’s, as well as cannibal films such as Man From the Deep River and Cannibal Ferox.
Unsurprising, then, that this paper-thin plot is used as a vehicle for eye-gouging, throat-slitting, breast-tearing, head-popping."
"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. "
"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."
