DAY OF THE DEAD (1985)
Over the years I've revisited DAY OF THE DEAD a number times in hopes that I'll enjoy it, but I never do. The first half is so slow and then when the violence finally happens it's so by-the-numbers that it's still boring. Bad acting, no likable characters, low budget, slow pace, tons of boring dialogue, Bub the world's most annoying zombie, unsatisfying beginning, middle and ending. DAY OF THE DEAD had so much potential that it's depressing to even think about, but in the end it's just a boring snoozefest. Skip it.
If you need me I'll be in my room checking my blood pressure while watching DAWN OF THE DEAD.
