The Day of the Dead

I have watched George A Romero's film Day of the Dead this week. It's the third in his series after Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. The movie is set in an underground mine where a set of scientists and military personnel are isolated and trying to find the answer. The chief scientist is trying to find a way to domesticate the dead. He has a zombie called Bob who represents his most successful subject to date. The situation is bad as there is a lot of internal tension in the group and this eventually boils over into unimaginable horror. It's an amazing film in terms of the level of gore it provides.
