Also out today, on DVD, the long talked of return to the zombie saga for George Romero, LAND OF THE DEAD.
I must admit, I'd never actually seen any of the "zombie trilogy" until recently. Last year I caught Day of the Dead on cable, and was very underwhelmed, but just rented Night of the Living Dead (the original 1968 film) and Dawn of the Dead (the 1978 follow-up) and was thoroughly impressed. True classics, that hold up well to time, due to the strong survival-horror story elements coupled with cutting social commentary. The 2004 remake of Dawn garnered much attention, but the original far surpasses it.
Can't wait to see Land of the Dead!
