The last Blu-Ray tip for this time is admittedly very special. This film can actually be considered a B-movie. Nevertheless, or precisely because of that, Zombie – Dawn of the Dead is a milestone in film history. Because it, as well as its prequel, laid the foundation for countless horror films, good and bad ones. If you are into horror and the fight against the living dead, you cannot avoid this film: Zombie – Dawn of the Dead.
ZOMBIE & THE CRITICAL STORY
There is no question that Zombie – Dawn of the Dead is much more than just a horror film. Even if the typical 70s drama and the effects no longer seem up-to-date today, they still exude an oppressive, gloomy mood.
Additionally, Zombie – Dawn of the Dead includes a social criticism that is even relevant today. Maybe more than ever.
After a small group of survivors saved themselves in a department store and holed up there, they forget the impending danger for a while. The free consumption of completely unnecessary luxury goods is too tempting. The party ends, however, when hundreds of zombies knock on the door to join in the celebration.
The influx of zombies into the department store can be seen as symbolic of our often irrational consumer behavior.
Perhaps we needed a pandemic to realize that our behavior was for a long time less determined by human values. And maybe one or the other of us has mutated more into a zombie than the undead in the film due to the flood of offers.
So you have to take a closer look at Zombie – Dawn of the Dead to see the real message. But that’s exactly what makes Zombie – Dawn of the Dead particularly valuable, as well as the fact that it has influenced an entire film genre.
Especially in the Uncut Argento version, with lots of chips and popcorn as well as the bonus material that the Blu-Ray offers, every movie evening becomes a special experience. And now, you have the chance to win a Blu-Ray or DVD of this film classic.
