George A. Romero's Land of the Dead

LandOfTheDeadPoster A zombie anti-hero emerges in the guise of a black mechanic known as "Big Daddy" (Eugene Clark) in George A. Romero's fourth installment in his series of satirical horror films that famously began with his heart-stopping magnum opus "Night of the Living Dead" (1968). Big Daddy leads an army of beautifully gruesome zombies as they seek entry into their demolished city's well-defended skyscraper of civility that protects the richest members of society. Romero keeps the political and social satire subtle but consistent as a group of heavily armed mercenary cowboys perpetrate violent anarchy against zombie civilians whose future is as bleak as that of their occupiers. Gory sight gags and intestine-eating scenes abound in this must-see movie for fans of the horror genre.

Rated R. 94 mins. (B) (Three Stars)
