Meat eaters: Dawn Of The Dead(2004)

I have always been considerably hardhearted where horror movie remakes and "updates" are concerned. I probably always will be. That said every once in a while a remake comes along that I actually like and Dawn Of The Dead, a 2004 "update" of the 1978 classic directed by George Romero, is one of them. This 2oo4 remake is directed by Zach Snyder and, like the 1978 Romero directed movie of the same name, chronicles the struggles of a small group of people who sequester themselves in a huge mall after a worldwide plague turns the majority of the human race into ravenous, aggressive flesh eating zombies. Like the '78 film this update is full of gore and superlative makeup effects.

This movie is available for sale at Amazon at a very affordable price. The movie is also available on Blu Ray. To see the uncut, widescreen version of this movie for sale at Amazon click the DVD cover art image above.
