The nightmare continues. After fleeing the horror of the dead in a helicopter, the four travelers are forced to land on the roof of the mall. There they find food, shelter and trouble – a multi-storey store from top to bottom crammed with stupid walking corpses.
While having fun shooting the dead, people do not even suspect that in just a few hours one of them will become the one they kill so easily – a carnivorous zombie, and a little later a gang of thugs will come to the store, making no distinction between the living and the dead, whose only desire is lust for profit and violence.

Dawn of the Dead is a movie that any self-respecting film fan knows, not to mention fans of the zombie genre. This is without exaggeration the cult ‘trash’ of George Romero, the master of this direction, in a good sense of the word. That is, like many horror stories about the living dead of that time, this picture is even more amusing than frightening. But the scale of what is happening and the imagination of the creators amaze to this day. Okay, when several funny or scary ghouls attack a bunch of people in the house, as it was in the Night of the Living Dead by the same Romero. But in this ‘sequel’, after 10 years, everything turned out to be as much bigger and cooler, as if you compare the second ‘Terminator’ with the first.
The action was transferred to a giant supermarket, the zombies became many times larger, and the film turned from a horror into a kind of action movie. When it is not the fears of the main characters of the revived corpses that are more important, but how beautifully and ingeniously they will deal with them, using all available means. There is such a wonderful game Dead Rising, which was made in the exact image and likeness of this film. There are hundreds, if not thousands of ways to exterminate zombies, and no less of them in the frame. And what could only be looked at in 1978, at the end of the first decade of the 21st century, you can literally feel it on your own skin if you run such a toy from a projector and surround sound in a dark room.
Dawn of the Dead is as unique as Bad Taste and Living Carrion by Peter Jackson. It can be seen that the authors are not only masters of their craft, but also the most devoted fans of the genre from the very beginning. We tried to fit in one film all the previous experience of the genre. There are sudden attacks of bloodthirsty ghouls, and their huge frightening crowds, which inexorably pursue a handful of survivors. And what is important, a very decent action, here they shoot, blow up, drive motorcycles and trucks, literally smash the supermarket to pieces. There is practically no suspense left, and for a 139-minute zombie horror film in this case, it is not at all critical. On the contrary, ‘Dawn of the Dead’ of 78 brought a lot of new things to the development of the genre, it was at that time that these horror films showed new, frightening monsters and interesting action.
It can be safely put on a par with the best works of the ‘Troma’ studio. And for many, this is still the best zombie horror movie (or zombie action movie, a parody, whatever!) In principle, which was released in several versions. Almost three hours of zombie mayhem is no joke to you. Even an excellent remake of the early 2000s cannot be compared with this! Do not ignore it in any case if you havent looked at it yet. Of course, there are enough bloopers and nonsense, but the overall picture is impressive even after several decades. You know, shooting this for just $ 1.5 million even at that time is a real feat. Well, you can also call this a real work of art if you are crazy about a particular genre.
In my opinion – one of the best zombie horror films (with elements of a parody action movie) in the history of cinema. ‘Dawn of the Dead’ is an unambiguous must see)
