Fun to watch with Ann, ’cause she sure likes to jump & scream during scary movies. More of an action-adventure film than a horror film, and similar in tone to Day of the Dead, not the (in my opinion) superior Dawn of the Dead or original Night of the Living Dead. What remains great about Romero’s films, though, is that he works in large themes. While one would never be able to pin down an exact 9/11 parallel, the motifs are there. As are other current issues of the day, like when to respect sentient life and corporate manipulation of fear. Most importantly, there are zombies eating intestines and getting their heads blown off. This picture is a fine way to escape the grueling heat.
