Dawn of the Dead ★★★½ Zombi; Zombie; Zombies 1978

Romero's gruesome sequel to his “Night of the Living Dead.” A mysterious plague causes the recently dead to rise from their graves and scour the countryside for living flesh. Very violent, gory, graphic, and shocking, yet not without humor. Gives interesting consideration to the violence created by the living humans in their efforts to save themselves. 126m/C VHS, DVD, Bluray Disc . David Emge, Ken Foree, Gaylen Ross, Scott H. Reiniger, David Crawford, David Early, Daniel Dietrich, Richard France, Tom Savini, Howard K. Smith, George A. Romero; D: George A. Romero; W: George A.
