Happy birthday, Mr. Romero. And many happy returns.
J.C.Penney in Monroeville Mall — where Dawn of the Dead (1978) was filmed — being dismantled in December of 2012.
Paging Highway 62, paging Highway 62, please respond.
God rest you, gentle J.C. Penney’s.
DAWN OF THE DEAD cover from Cinema Junkyard.
And this is how I first saw the film, sometime in the early part of the 80s. And this is where we end. Thanks for sticking around this far. I can only think of all the stuff I missed, though. But I’ve spent quite enough time talking about this film already.
If you haven’t, somehow, seen the original, please rectify that. Don’t take my word for it. Watch it for yourself. Make up your own mind.
Produced with the cooperation of these fine people and agencies.
Fictional. Schyeah, right.
DIRECTED AND WRITTEN BY GEORGE A. ROMERO.
Where would we be without our lead zombies?
More of the cast. Look at those names. You can’t make up names that good.
All of whom were stellar and unsung. People don’t usually watch zombie movies to watch the actors. But you easily could in the case of DAWN OF THE DEAD. All of them were real people, not particularly one-note or two-dimensional, but people with lives, even outside the end of the world.
