Dawn Of The Dead

Theatrical Release: March 20, 2004
Dawn Of The Dead


This horror film is a 21st-Century remake of the 1979 zombie movie, which was the second part of George A. Romero’s Dead Trilogy. Ana (Sarah Polley), a nurse at a hospital in the mid-sized town of Everett, Wash., is puzzled by a patient that has been placed in the intensive care unit because of a bite. After she goes home to a romantic evening with her husband, the couple falls asleep unaware of the plague-like event hitting the community with corpses walking the streets. The next morning, a neighbor’s child attacks her husband. As Ana tries to help him, she soon realizes that the town is in chaos. Those who have been bitten die and come back to life as bloodthirsty zombies looking for victims. After finding their neighborhood in ruins, Ana and a police officer (Ving Rhames) go to a shopping mall where they find a dozen others holed up and fighting off zombies. Now they must all join together in order to survive.

Dove Review

In this horrific film, death is portrayed in a perverted and grotesque light. A TV preacher explains that when there is no room in hell, the dead will walk the earth — not exactly biblical theology. A pregnant women gives birth to a hideous zombie baby. While passing the time, a man stands on the roof and practices his marksmanship by shooting people in the head. The film is loaded with lots of blood and gruesome images. In the midst of all of this, a couple is shown having sex. Virtually every sentence contains bad language, including more than 30 f-words.
