    Dawn of the Dead Review
    As horrible as the idea of remaking
    George Romero's seminal 1978
    zombie shocker might have been to some,
    the simple fact is that when taken on its
    own terms Zack Snyder's Dawn of the
    Dead is an effective and action-packed
    horror flick that should go down very well
    with genre fans.
    The plot is much the same as it ever
    was, with a group of survivors holing up in
    a shopping mall as a zombie apocalypse
    plays out in the world around them.
    Thankfully, the group of survivors is larger
    this time out, guaranteeing plenty of
    victims for the undead to chow down on;
    an aspect which takes central
    prominence in the remake, with any
    notion of social commentary stripped
    away to make room for more gore and
    exploding heads. The result may be miles
    away from being a classic like the original,
    but as far as gut-munching zombies films
    go, it's damn entertaining.
