Movie 34 of 2008 (Special Halloween Marathon): Dawn of the Dead

Movie Description:

Following the events of Night of the Living Dead (1968), we follow the exploits of four survivors of the expanding zombie apocalypse as they take refuge in an abandoned shopping mall following a horrific SWAT evacuation of an apartment complex. Taking stock of their surroundings, they arm themselves, lock down the mall, and destroy the zombies inside so they can eke out a living--at least for a while. Tensions begin to build as months go on, however, when they come to realize that they've fallen prey to consumerism. Soon afterward, they have even heavier problems to worry about, as a large gang of bikers discovers the mall and invades it, ruining the survivors' best-laid plans and forcing them to fight off both lethal bandits and flesh-eating zombies.

My Opinion:

*yawn* Oh... sorry... is the movie over? Yeah... I didn't like this one much more than I did NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (sorry Nick & Chris!) I mean, it was a little better as I enjoyed watching the zombies stumble around and such, but I just didn't see much plot to the story. *shrugs* I guess I'm just not mean to be a Romero groupie.
