Zombies rule the USA, except for a small group of scientists and military personnel who reside in an underground bunker in Florida. The scientists are using the undead in gruesome experiments; much to the chagrin of the military. Finally the military finds that their men have been used in the scientists’ experiments, and banish the scientists to the caves that house the Living Dead. Unfortunately, the zombies from above ground have made their way into the bunker…. —IMDb
Born George Andrew Romero on February 4, 1940 in New York City. Romero was passionate about filmmaking from an early age. After attending Carnegie-Mellon University, he worked in the industrial film business making commercials and shorts. In 1968, he released his first full-length feature, a horror film called Night of the Living Dead. Shot in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, the low-budget film soon reached cult status. Romero subsequently turned it into a trilogy with 1978’s Dawn of the Living Dead and 1985’s Day of the Dead.
Known for mobilizing tiny budgets to create unforgettable scare flicks, Romero also directed Creepshow (1980), Martin (1978) and the TV show Tales From the Darkside (1984-1986). Though the success of his Dead trilogy afforded him bigger budgets and higher profile actors, Romero failed to attain the same level of success later in his career.
Romero is married to actress Christine Forrest. They have three children. —bio.
Not as good as the second one, but it had really interesting themes and characters... is just that, it lacks the social sattire, or even a strong and memorable main character. Good effects, some music from the beggining is memorable, but that cheesy 80's music at the end just, ugh. It is worth the watch, but it could have been better. Gotta love Bub.
Suffers from shouty performances, an eighties-ass score in the worst way possible, and a threadbare plot - even for Romero. The gore FX are of course first-rate: the montage at the end of zombies just chowing down is pretty queasy, as is the horrific stretched-vocal chords gag. It's not awful, but the limits of Romero's zombie story (and it is pretty much one story, across different films) were showing even in '85.
Terzo capitolo di Romero,un gradino sotto Zombi,ma cmq di alto livello.Ormai il mondo ha perso,l'edonismo di Reagan e della Thatcher ci ha colonizzati e ci ha reso tutti zombie,ridotti solo a consumare e a non rompere i coglioni a chi ci governa e sottomette.Qui lo zombie ormai stà prendendo coscienza di sè e in alcuni casi(vedi i militari) è preferibile all'essere umano.Fantastico il saluto di Bub alla fine.4*
The paradox of George Romero is that he is equally old-fashioned and forward-thinking; keen on the modern, thinking of it in classical terms
Here you go—now THIS is how you do it. In my opinion, Romero’s best all-around film (I was never a big fan of Dawn). Great characters, arguably the best zombie effects ever conceived (by Savini in… read review
