Dawn of the Dead (2004)

Remake of the 1978 Dawn of the Dead. Pretty good. A few very good scenes. Fast zombies. Still like the original better, but deserves to be watched.

Today was the opening day of "Land of the Dead" Romero's latest Zombie offering.

Au menu: Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Eating the flesh of dead chicken, Day of the Dead, a little drive, Land of the Dead. All the Romero's originals, no remakes.
