Society collapsing is scary. Nobody being left is scary. The people you're trapped with are crazy is scary. But whats really scary, is that we live in a world that can be so easily disposed of. As the film cites we are just paper trails and names on sheets of paper in a binder left underground at the end of the world. We can all slip into nothing and this film questions what documenting a life really means.
Day of the Dead falters on the basis that its doesn't have the sense of urgency the others do. However it has probably the darkest implications of any of the dead films with the humans degeneration and eventually becoming less humane than the zombies. Some Criticize the films atmosphere as being dull but I strongly disagree I love sort of sterile coldness of the bunker. Must see.
It's cheesy and sometimes obvious, but damn if this rendering of the end of the world doesn't speak to me. The cold dead walls of the bunker and the fractioning of the family unit, of the human spirit, of our fleeting self-satisfied dominion over death, and a final, blissful exile on an island refuge - it's a very poetic film with characters who are stereotyped but not two-dimensional. A personal film to me. Perfect.
This sequel is my favorite of the series. Turns the zombies into plagued human figures.
Bub was one of the underestimated ones. A sympathetic figure.
choke on them.
Chchchoke on them...I'm glad he got it.
