(87) Dawn of the Dead is still a character study, as much as any of the “Dead” films, but here the satire is cranked up to eleven. It may not be as frightening as Night, but it’s just as gruesome and I’d venture to say that Dawn is Romero at his peak. The characters are memorable, Goblin’s soundtrack is impeccable, and the movie shifts tone enough to keep you guessing throughout. The fake fluorescent blood hasn’t aged well, but even that aspect adds to the film’s overall fun.
