DAY OF THE DEAD
1985, Taurus Entertainment, 96 min, USA, Dir: George A. Romero

In the third installment of George A. Romero’s living-dead saga, the zombies have firmly taken control of the world. Holed up in an underground bunker in Florida, a group of scientists and military men search for a solution to the undead outbreak. But the testing of zombie specimens by Logan (Richard Liberty) causes friction with Rhodes (Joe Pilato, in a tour de force performance), and some of the group, including Sarah (Lori Cardille), begin to think it might be safer outside with the flesh-eaters. Featuring state-of-the-art special effects by Tom Savini and an Academy Award-caliber performance by Howard Sherman as Bub (the zombie with a soul), Romero’s film viciously pulls the guts out of Reagan-era America to show the bloody mess it’s become.
