Dawn of the Dead ★★★ 2004 (R)

The dead are rising from their graves yet again in this remake of the 1978 classic, except now the zombies move around much faster (no waddling allowed!). To level the playing field, Snyder (making his feature film directorial debut) includes more survivors to fight 'em off. The result is still lots of gory fun, but the biting humor so vital to the original is lacking. 100m/C DVD, UMD, HD DVD .
