The Unrated Director's Cut has a scene missing from the UK cinema release. Just before Cholo visits Kauffman for the final time he intervenes in a disturbance at Kauffman's neighbor's' house where we see that a man has hanged himself and his son tries to cut him down only to be bitten in the neck when his father reanimates as a zombie. Cholo destroys the zombie by bashing its head in while the distraught widow shrieks in the background. See more »
Again the master of the Zombies with a exciting and thrilling film.
This film by the master Zombies George A Romero is the key because the producers made it,but he's the icon,he's the hall-of-fame,he's the standard which created the living dead genre.Thematically deals about a bunch of people trying to live as though nothing has changed or at least that's what the administration believes.The protagonists understand that the world has completely changed.There's an administration sort of a self-styled government ruled by a magnate,the big man,Kauffman(Dennis Hooper).A dead-reckoning truck has been stolen by the second-in command(John Leguizano)and Kauffman wants him captured or killed and the $ 2 million piece of equipment returned.He assigns the mission to a group of valiant fighters(Simon Baker,Robert Joy,Asia Argento among others).The picture is reflective about society and I think he elevates the genre in that way .
The movie contains terror,action,scares,irony with some jokes, and lots of blood and gore courtesy of makeup specialists Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger.In the film appear known people and Romero friends in outrage cameos as Asia Argento ,she's known from small girl when Romero worked with her father in ¨Dawn of the dead(1978) and Two evil eyes¨; Tom Savini a master makeup who worked in¨Day of the dead¨among others and Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg director and starring of ¨Shaun of the dead¨the successful English Zombies film. George Romero is a sensational stylist,he's a great craftsman,besides he's a great storyteller.Romero is a master editor that's what makes this movie so great to watch because there's so much detail but he shoots so much coverage.Romero is always trying to hold on to how the story is best told to get his vision across.Night of the living dead is a masterpiece, but here Romero reaches another level another climax in this one. The motion picture will like to Zombies cinema enthusiastic and gore-fans.
