Movie Summary

George A. Romero
Released:
1985
Rating:
R
Day of the Dead is a 1985 horror film directed by George A. Romero. It is a sequel to 1978's Dawn of the Dead and the third film in Romero's series of zombie films. After zombies take over the entire world, Sara (Lori Cardille), John (Terry Alexander), Bill (Jarlath Conroy) and Miguel (Anthony Dileo Jr.) live in an underground military bunker in the Florida Everglades. Led by Captain Roads (Joseph Pilato), the survivors struggle to find other humans amidst the zombie horde. They also wrangle zombie specimens for Dr. Logan (Richard Liberty) to use in his experiments, which are becoming increasingly controversial. Dr. Logan believes that zombies can be domesticated, so he is working with Bub (Sherman Howard), a zombie who strangely seems to remember his human life. Captain Rhodes objects to Dr. Logan's odd experiments, causing friction between the two men. As their conflict becomes more violent, it becomes clear that they are more dangerous than the brain-eating zombies outside the bunker's walls.moreless
