Mini Movie Review:
By no means one of my favorite Of The Dead movies but still better than most zombie flicks.
The film starts off with a bunch of students and their professor from the University of Pittsburgh filming a horror movie in the forest. They hear a news report on the TV about the dead coming back to life and walking. They aren’t sure at first if the report is real or fake but two of the students decide to leave and head for saftey. Jason, the one filming the horror movie decides to head to the dormitory to find his girlfriend Debra.
After Jason find Debra she repeatedly tries to contact her family with no luck. The group of students and the professor head to the town of Scranton to check on Debrah’s family. On the way there Mary sees a car wreck and ends up running over a cop and three zombies trying to escape the scene. After driving for awhile the thought of the 3 people/zombies Mary ran over really start to get to her, she starts to question if they were alive or dead. Mary finally stops the van and gets out and tells everyone she needs air and to clear her head. While she is away from the group she ends up pulling a gun out and shoots herself. Her friends rush her to the nearest hospital were they quickly realize the dead are up and walking around. The group realize they will have to fight to survive to get to Debra’s parent’s house.
Will the group make it? Will they even survive the night? This is a must watch zombie film for any Romero fan.
Movie Rating: 3 out of 5
