Demonstrates you don't need to be bombed back into the stone age when you can reach that state by exercising your own stupidity. The subterranean setting is the tip-off: While the zombies evolve the humans devolve -- almost literally -- into cave men.

The years have been kind to Day Of The Dead, however...And though it's still a disappointment in relation to its two predecessors, it has much to recommend it.

Largely missing is the primal horror of the first film and the sharp satire of the second, yet what remains isn't bad at all.

The third leg of an entertaining and thought-provoking but not completely satisfactory 1950's zombie trilogy.

This deconstruction is so encompassing that the climactic explosion of zombie mayhem - revealing and awesome though it is - is practically an afterthought.

It feels frustrated, embittered, made by a man who's fed up with the business side of the movie industry.

Darker and more contained than the first two, this is one film that deserves a second look.

Low-budget, scaled-down follow-up that doesn't really cut it.
