DAY OF THE DEAD ( 1985 )
George Romero’s third living dead installment is talky, dreary and too slow too often. Still, the zombies look great and the gore is outstanding. The primary problem is that the setting is an underground military base. Other liabilities concern bad dialogue and hammy performances. This was the first time Romero explored the concept of training zombies via a saluting, gun firing rotter named “Bub.” Definitely worth a look for gore hounds and zombie complitionists. All others steer clear. A man is ripped in half and screams “Choke on ‘em!” as he watches zombies disembowel and devour him – It’s a Tom Savini career high point.
