#31DH: October 27, 2015 – Day of the Dead

Standard

Synopsis: A small group of military officers and scientists dwell in an underground bunker as the world above is overrun by zombies.

Impressions: The third Dead film by Romero, is probably the weakest one i have seen.  I enjoied the plot, but i felt that the military characters were too cheesy and overacted.  However, it got a lot more gory than Night and Dawn films.

Social Message:  The idea of coexisting is interesting.  You have scientist who are trying to find ways to see if zombie and humans can coexist (or revert the dead back to life), then you have the military who just wants to kill them all.  Even with science proving that there can be some kind of coexistence between the two (humans & zombies) the military uses it’s power to shut down the research thus bringing doom to themselves.  As much as i see coexist stickers on cars around town, the reality is that it is not possible.  with to many groups who want power and/or have power they are never in the market to work together unless it is a quick fix.  anything beyond that breaks down and causes war, separation, hate, etc.
