DAWN OF THE DEAD 3-D. 1978 (2015).
Writer-director George A. Romero ups the ante on his indie landmark NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD with a bigger budget, more gore (courtesy of special effects/makeup artist Tom Savini) and a touch of social commentary. Four people take refuge in a Pennsylvania shopping mall as a mysterious plague turns fresh corpses into flesh-hungry zombies and civilization collapses around them.
