THE TOP 31 HORROR MOVIES OF ALL TIME
Directed by: George A. Romero
Starring: David Emge, Ken Foree, Scott Reiniger, Gaylen Ross
Plot: Following the events of Night of the Living Dead (1968), we follow the exploits of four survivors of the expanding zombie apocalypse as they take refuge in an abandoned shopping mall following a horrific SWAT evacuation of an apartment complex. Taking stock of their surroundings, they arm themselves, lock down the mall, and destroy the zombies inside so they can eke out a living–at least for a while. Tensions begin to build as months go on, and they come to realize that they’ve fallen prey to consumerism. Soon afterward, they have even heavier problems to worry about, as a large gang of bikers discovers the mall and invades it, ruining the survivors’ best-laid plans and forcing them to fight off both lethal bandits and flesh-eating zombies
I watched Dawn of the Dead for the first time with my toy pistol by my side – you know, just in case I needed to take out a few zombies. The movie left a lasting impression on me and got me interested in how they did the effects I’d just seen. I started reading Fangoria to find out how they ripped that dudes head off with the helicopter blades. I researched the best recipe for fake blood. Halloween night at my house was never the same since.
