DAWN OF THE DEAD (2004) Sheriff: "Danny, put another round in that woman over there! Look! She's a twitcher!" An injection of mordant wit and a transfusion of black humour ensured that Zack Snyder's remake of the George A Romero horror classic isn't braindead. A cross-section of American society hides inside a Milwaukee shopping mall while zombies threateningly maraud outside.

DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) - Funny as hell with some great bad acting and a whole lot of stumbling zombies! Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia SWAT team members, a traffic reporter, and his television-executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall. Whatever you do, don't go shopping...Directed by George A. Romero
Dawn Of The Dead (1978, George A Romero) - Ok, whilst I don't exactly find this film scary, it is one of my favourites (my top film for putting on when I come home drunk but can't sleep). Four people take refuge in a shopping mall whilst the living dead slowly take over. A clever social commentary on consumerism and exploring who is the real enemy, featuring explicit gore unseen for the time, and a real feeling of dread and hopelessness throughout. Best of the bunch, I think.
