DAY OF THE DEAD (1985)
Having survived the zombie apocalypse, a small group of scientists and military men look for answers in a secure underground bunker in Florida. Convinced they can tame the reanimated, the scientists have focused their domestication efforts on Bub, a zombie-turned-star pupil. But all hell breaks loose, and they are soon forced to fight for their survival. The third chapter in George Romero's zombie series, following NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) and DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978), was a milestone for zombie special effects, with blood and guts at their absolute best, courtesy of makeup gurus Tom Savini and Greg Nicotero (THE WALKING DEAD). DIR/SCR George A. Romero; PROD Richard P. Rubinstein. U.S., 1985, color, 96 min. NOT RATED
