Product Description

This DVD includes a high definition version of the George A. Romero classic. Extras include audio commentaries with Romero and cast/crew, documentary, fast film facts, behind-the-scenes, interview with Richard Liberty, Gateway Commerce Center promo, trail

Chapter three of George Romero's mighty zombie trilogy has big footsteps to follow. Night of the Living Dead was a classic that revitalized a certain corner of the cinema, and Dawn of the Dead was nothing short of epic. Day of the Dead, however, has always been regarded as a comedown compared to those twin peaks--and perhaps it is. But on its own terms, this is an awfully effective horror movie, made with Romero's customary social satire and cinematic vigor--when a "retrained" zombie responds to the "Ode to Joy," the film is in genuinely haunting territory. The story is set inside a sunken military complex, where Army and medical staff, supposedly working on a solution to the zombie problem, are going crazy (strongly foreshadowing the final act of 28 Days Later). Tom Savini's makeup effects could make even hardcore gore fans tear off their own heads in amazement. --Robert Horton

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Darkest Day of Horror the World Has Ever Known" March 22, 2004
The third--and possibly the final--entry in George Romero's DEAD series, 1985's DAY OF THE DEAD was initially panned by both critics and horror fans. Many complained that, in spite of the much improved special FX, the film did not live up to the creepiness and the literacy of the groundbreaking first film of the trilogy, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968), nor was its content equal to the offbeat humor and satirical subtext of the second film, DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978). Thus, it was simply written off as another exercise in shock value. But in the time that has passed since the initial release of DAY OF THE DEAD, many fans and critics alike have grown to regard the film as a worthy entry in the series, with many claiming it has become their favorite of the three.
DAY OF THE DEAD is a claustrophobic character study set almost entirely in a secured underground military bunker. The story picks up some months after the end of DAWN OF THE DEAD, with the earth now nearly overrun by the flesh-eating corpses (one character estimates that the zombies outnumber the "normals" by circa 400,000 to 1). Military personnel have been assigned to the bunker with orders to protect and assist the group of scientists there who are experimenting on zombies in order to find a "solution" for the pandemic. However, much time has passed already with few results, and the assignment is taking its toll on the soldiers. When the Major in charge of the unit dies, the next in rank, an unbalanced Captain named Rhodes, takes over the project with the intention of shutting it all down and bugging out. The scientists resist, of course, as do the few civilians under the scientists' employ, and the resulting strife just might result in the annihilation of these last vestiges of the human race.

If you haven't see Day of the Dead and you're reading the viewer reviews of this film, it's presumably because you're either a zombie fan or you loved Night of the Living Dead and/or Dawn of the Dead. But you're not sure whether or not to watch this film because of the mixed reviews it received. My recommendation is that you should rent this film and watch it twice and if you liked the film buy the Anchor Bay remaster widescreen version.
The plot to Day of the Dead is simple. The world has been conquered by zombies, as seen in Day's predecessors. There are only 12 survivors left in Florida and they've taken refuge in an underground salt mine and silo. There's heated conflicts between the soldiers and the scientists and civilians and by the end, thousands of zombies pour into the silo and wreak graphic havoc.
Yes, Day of the Dead is extremely graphic and gory (It's probably the most violent and gory American horror film ever made) as most zombie films are. But this one actually has an original and interesting plot. Despite what some critics said about it, I found them to be wrong. The acting is also considerably stronger than Night or Dawn. There's also the infusion of new ideas such as an intelligent and human zombie and amputation to stop the spread of infection. The make up effects are also Tom Savini's best so don't miss the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmm.....apocalicious! November 3, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A fine horror film in its own right, but it suffers in comparison to "Dawn of the Dead". Where "Dawn" thematically succeeds on its criticism of consumerism, it's hard to find where "Day" fits in the trilogy. And George Romero himself has stated that this was only a shadow of the original "dead" grand finale he envisioned. But the good news is that maybe we'll see a another sequel some day? It's time...the world needs another Zombie film!
But no's creepy, apocalyptic nightmare that probes a primal fear, i.e. being eaten. It's quite well-acted (in a yelling and screaming sort of way) in spite of its other shortcomings. Lori Cardille and Jarlath Conroy stand out; too bad they haven't done more film work (both are very active in indie/theater work). Josef Pilato has gone on to character roles, including Dean Martin in "Pulp Fiction".
One note regarding the special effects...they're *really* disturbing, especially Sarah's field surgery upon Miguel. But people don't pull apart or break quite so easily.
It's well worth seeing. If you can still find it, buy it. The extras (including a home video "making of" documentary) are compelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Day of the Dead and the Prison System March 28, 2006
Of all Zombie movies, I liked this one the best for it's grim portrayel of a world gone mad and over run by blood thirsty rotting corpses. I think the sub-plot/story of this film is based apon our current prison system if zombies=criminals. The underground shelter has become what is left of society, or at least what these solitary survivors percieve as the last fragment of society. They keep several zombies in a corral, like cattle or a prison of sorts if you will for the zombies (criminals) every day more and more of the zombies are captured and put into this prison. Let's say that Dr.Logan (Frankenstein) is a bleeding heart liberalist with an idea to rehabillitate the zombies, he thinks they can be 'tamed' or domesticated. He knows that with the zombie population at 125,000 to every one human that the war against them is futile. I think this represents a huge problem with the prison system, the war against criminals will never end, every time you imprison one there is always one or tow more to take their place, and theres definately not enough room for them all, and many prisoners today are serving long pointless sentences for non-violent crimes and some are in for minor crimes. Many of these people could be rehabillitated and turned back into society as useful members of society. Nobody wants to pay for this rehabillitation however so we lock them in a room for several years hoping when they are released they will be so afraid of returning to jail they wont re-offend. However this is not the case as after release from prison they are not rehabillitated for their crimes and will most likely re-offend. Lets say Sarah and her Lab Partner are open minded yet sceptical as Logans theories are quite sound but they do not have the time and the resources to go along with his plan. Read more ›
