HALLOWEEN HORROR - DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) - podcast review out now

We carry on with our Halloween Horror special this month, looking at the zombie films of the late George A. Romero, and this week is the turn of Dawn of the Dead, which came out a full 10 years after Night of the Living Dead. Following a news executive and traffic reporter (Gaylen Ross and David Emge), as well as two S.W.A.T. team members (Ken Foree and Scott Reiniger), they come across an abandoned shopping mall and hope to survive the zombie apocalypse in relative comfort. We discuss the themes of consumerism and wish fulfilment, as well as admiring the more revamped look of the undead, designed by Tom Savini, but really we just use this podcast as an excuse to gush about this brilliant film.
