The Month of Horror Day 22: Day of the Dead

Basement contributor Matt Bellamy has taken it upon himself to watch and review at least one horror movie a day for the month of October . . . because he's awesome that way! And he's gone from night to dawn, so let's face the dead during the day!

As if you didn't see this one coming, how could I not finish off the greatest zombie trilogy of all time? This is a fun movie, it doesn't quite have the same impact as its predecessors which is why some write this instalment off as a lazy and cheap sequel but I think those people are missing the point! 'Day of the Dead' is about cynicism for the human species and for the first time feeling sympathetic and even siding with the flesh eaters this go around. One zombie in particular is transformed into a fully developed character that seems to exhibit more humanity than some of the human characters, his name is 'Bub' and don't you dare even think about taking away his Walkman, or he'll eat your brains! I've known people like that before, best to just steer clear of them. Tomorrow's flick is something no pregnant woman should ever, ever watch.
