Critic Reviews of "Dawn of the Dead (1978)"VarietyOctober 07, 2008
Romero's script is banal when not incoherent.Chicago ReaderMarch 29, 2007
Romero's sensibility approaches the Swiftian in its wit, accuracy, excess, and profound misanthropy.Washington PostFebruary 21, 2007
Between atrocities the movie has its funny moments and funny lines. It's just difficult to relish the humor when you're dripping in so much gore.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Undoubtedly the zombie movie to end 'em all.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
Dawn of the Dead is one of the best horror films ever made -- and, as an inescapable result, one of the most horrifying. It is gruesome, sickening, disgusting, violent, brutal and appalling.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Perhaps horror-movie buffs will consider this an improvement.Total FilmOctober 14, 2014
George Romero's horrific sequel to Night Of The Living Dead finds the zombies still shuffling around Pittsburgh.Radio TimesOctober 07, 2013
Cynical, devastating and relentless, director George A Romero's gruelling masterpiece about the American Dream turning into a terrifying nightmare is a brilliant blend of black comedy and hip, if harrowing, carnage.CinefantastiqueJuly 23, 2008
This sequel to Night of the Living Dead (1968) abandoned the shadowy black-and-white creepiness of its progenitor in favor of a brightly lit color canvas that was bigger, broader, and bloodier.Projection BoothOctober 29, 2007
Romero's framing of social ills via his rotting, walking metaphors is ingenious but it's the more subtle, unspoken statements that register with the greatest force.Film4September 24, 2007
This is both a fine straight-up horror and an archly sly comment on consumer society.eFilmCritic.comJuly 29, 2007
Romero, who was his own editor this time out, keeps the scenes clipped and purposeful.
