One needn't be a splatter junkie to miss Romero's marshalling of action across multiple theaters. But the maestro finds a way to slay intellectual and aesthetic antsiness with the same bullet.

Not the best but certainly far from the worst of Romero's series of accounts of an epidemic of dead people coming to life to eat the living.

In Romero's apocalypse, the brutish and soulless hold sway, and that's just the humans.

Trenchantly implicates the media into the ongoing apocalypse that in previous Dead chapters already included family, capitalism, the military, class divides

It's rough around the edges, dirty in the middle, and stained through with a sort of nihilistic humanism that ultimately unsettles more than the lurching undead themselves.

If you didn't know that Romero himself directed this film, you would think it had been fashioned by some brilliant young wunderkind director, reared on Romero's work and eager to stake out his own claim to the territory.

Probably the best zombie movie since 1978's 'Dawn of the Dead.'
