Ian West’s review published on Letterboxd:
“A tragedy about how a lack of human communication causes chaos and collapse even in this small little pie slice of society"
This one has it all... total collapse of civilization, mental breakdown from said collapse, science proving its right, impatient and angry racist militant mongaloid fucks trying to undermine science and grasp (with their tiny little hands) what little power they have (which ultimately means nothing in the big picture), good people getting fucked over, scumbags getting fucked over, scientists going nutso off the rails trying to prove the inferior-minded gun-toting sexist bigots that they are right (and in the process making said bigot fools feel victorious), and science ultimately winning thanks to Bub.
Take all that, a GREAT score, some of Savini’s best/most disgusting work, and the bleakest possible outlook and there you have it...BOOM. Equal parts infamous and essential, Day of the Dead is absolutely my favorite Romero Zombie jam—Royalty of the Dead. Also, that cool island themed paradise they set up in the bunker is so rad and such a realistic human touch.
Just another day marked off on the calendar.
