George A. Romero: director of films. Creator of zombies. One-way ticket to your darkest nightmares.
"In a world where the dead are returning to life, the word 'trouble' loses much of its meaning."
Land of the Dead was Romero's first zombie film for 20 years, following the success of Day of the Dead in '85. This one is brought to life by some terrific cinematography from Miroslaw Baszak and a solid make-up, costume and effects team. The story is based in a world where the undead have all but wiped out humankind, and those remaining are barricading themselves from the horrors outside.
While the technicalities are good, the story is a little limp considering the subject-matter. Sure there are plenty…
