(84) We’re well past the occasional optimism of earlier outings with Day of the Dead. Things are broken when we arrive and quickly deteriorating. Lori Cardille is exceptional as our stalwart hero, and her descent into doubt is key to what Day does right. The gore graduates from standard dismemberment to fixation on specific body parts, but by 1985 the overall shock-value is somewhat diminished. With another excellent soundtrack, and a big boost to production value, Day rounds out Romero’s “original trilogy” with a bang.
