I ended up re-watching Shaun of the Dead, which then lead to a viewing of all the George Romero’s “of the Dead” movies in rapid succession. It was pretty cool (and sometimes a bit painful) to watch the progression of the movies. Each of them was filmed about a decade apart, so not only is each movie a large leap forward in the development of Zombie lore, but also of film making in general. Incidentally, while the remake of Dawn of the Dead is awesome, the remake of Day is an atrocity that should be viewed by no one.
…of the Dead.
