There are scares aplenty in Dawn of the Dead; enjoy them and be well. Twenty years from now, though, I know which version I'll still be watching.

One of the genre's best pure zombie-fest films featuring regular folks against an army of the undead.

Nicely respectful of the original film, this remake amps up the adrenalin-charged action while skimping on the depth to deliver a gripping but empty-headed thrill-ride.

The remake of Dawn of the Dead is a fun, gory ride, that makes up for its lack of depth with all out action.

This oddly effective 'reimagining' loses some of the satire but none of the bite of the 1978 George Romero classic.

A more preferable kind of remake than one that simply regurgitates the storyline of the original.

Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately for those who feared a true desecration of Romero's masterwork, this is only a moderately competent zombie flick.

An example of an MTV horror reinventon done right, Dawn is a loud zombie-filled action fun-fest that's pure theatrical entertainment.

The first 10 minutes make up one of the most exciting beginnings in horror film history.

Less reflective of today's version of mindless horde-driven consumerism and perhaps simply more reflective of today's version of horror movie-making.

Un film divertissant et amusant qui risque de plaire au fan de Romero en attendant un nouveau film de sa série.
| Original Score: B
