Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
Director Alan Smithee takes us on an irreverent (and unauthorized) romp through George A. Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead, the film that spawned the modern zombie craze and a thousand "of the living dead" remakes and rip-offs.
The storyline has been re-tooled to offer an experimental and contemporary revision of the 1968 original - much like a DJ remix. Slated to generate royalties for the Night of the Living ... See full summary »

This is 'George A. Romero''s second film, and according to him, his worst. He stated that the writer was "very lazy" and showed little interest in the production, leaving halfway through the shooting. See more »
Dad, I just don't want to go to work in your baby food factory. And, I don't want to sell vacuum cleaners. I don't want to sell little toy plastic aircraft carriers. I don't wanna... I don't know what I want.
Chris, I think I understand what you're talking about. A little bit anyway. But these problems are a little bit like going to Howard Johnsons for some ice cream. You can get all kinds of wild, exotic flavors. But somehow, you always wind up with vanilla.
Oh, Jesus Christ, Dad, I could cry!

This film is not as good as not of the living dead but it still has it's merit if not just for the fact that George A. Romero directed this. It is his least favorite film, I don't know why that award should go to Two Evil Eyes. This film has spots where it is heard to understand what is going on but with the narration that Romero wisely added as a wrap around the film comes together and tells a fine story about a misguided man trying to make it in the early 1970's. He has to decide what is important live a life of excess or grow up and become a man for his family. I think the film does a great job of showing his journey and what this man needs to do. For a none horror effort this is superb Romero here. Not for the casual viewer but for the fans.
