Land of the Dead - Donation Bonus

It is Romero's biggest and most ambitious Dead film, but is it his best? DONATE and find out!

Day of the Dead (1985) - Donation Bonus

In the 60s and again in the 70s George Romero wowed not just horror fans but movie audiences across the globe with his tales of desperate people trying to survive in the middle of a zombie outbreak. In the 80's Romero again returned, this time to tell his most bleak vision for humanity. A small group of military men and scientists hole up underground in Florida, not knowing if they are the last humans on earth, but seeking a cure for the zombie plague. With Romero demanding the film be left unrated, and securing a very limited theatrical release because of it, Day of the Dead is a film that found it's popularity in the afterlife of VHS. Does it live up to Romero's first two tales of terror? DONATE TO NOW PLAYING TO FIND OUT!

Dawn of the Dead (1978) - Donation Bonus

George Romero didn't want to make another zombie movie, he had to be coaxed back to revisit the film that made him famous, but many would argue that Romero's Dawn of the Dead is that rare sequel that is better than the original. Now in the 1970s Romero gives us a world gone mad as the dead rise to kill the living, and we focus on a group of survivors holed up in the most American of fortresses -- a mall! The film is legendary among zombie fans, but does it hold up over 30 years later? DONATE TO NOW PLAYING and you can listen and find out!
