Daily Movie Review - Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Plot: A nurse, a policeman, a young married couple, a salesman, and other survivors of a worldwide plague that is producing aggressive, flesh-eating zombies, take refuge in a mega Midwestern shopping mall.
Thoughts: Ok, so this was the movie that spawned my original crippling fear of zombies way back when, seriously, I got physically ill after watching it. So when it came on tv a few nights ago I decided that in my quest to get over my fear of zombies I better just settle in and watch it.
Shock and awe I survived! After I got over my initial nerves I was able to get into it. This was Zach Snyder’s first feature film and you can really tell it’s his. It’s a film with a lot of really great style and it’s really beautifully shot. It’s also got a really great cast (seriously when I people mention Ty Burrell I think of this and not Modern Family). Of all the zombie movies I’ve seen this is definitely one of the best.
