Tim’s Horror Tweet Reviews: “Day of the Dead” (1985)

Our final zombie review for Halloween, our resident twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is here with review of the final installment of Romero’s ultimate zombie trilogy (“Night of the Living Dead,” “Dawn of the Dead,” and “Day of the Dead”) and is ready to take on the “Day of the Dead.” Hampered by a limited budget, this one was thought to be a disappointment when released 27 years ago. Has time been kind to this zombie flick?

Thoughts before the film:
I’m raping your newsfeed today and I don’t even care. Last one of the original trilogy. #DayOfTheDead

Thoughts while watching:
0:01 I pooped my pants the first time I saw this movie. The opening scene was freaky!
0:05 This film has the best makeup out of any of the movies in the entire series I think.
0:15 And how the zombies get smarter over time. Even though Survival of the Dead fucks all of that up.
0:17 The zombie they catch looks eerily similar to the zombie they catch in Return of the Living dead… Coincidence?
0:26 They’re doing all this research for nothing. They haven’t had contact in months…
0:33 Just feed Frankenstein already. He’s obviously hungry.
0:42 These guys really want to go to an island I think.
0:46 This Jamaican dude is awesome.
0:49 No zombie that wasn’t very nice! Now you’re in timeout.
0:54 Bub is my favorite zombie, he’s a badass.
1:04 All of these people are nuts.
1:22 This dude is always trying to drink, even when he’s about to get eaten.
1:25 The last 10 minutes of this movie is one of my favorite scenes in the entire series. So crazy.
1:25 So. Many. Zombies.
1:32 An old nuke silo is such an awesome setting for a movie.

Final Verdict:
#DayOfTheDead is my favorite in the series. I think it’s the scariest one, and has the best characters out of any of the other movies. An awesome setting, and just overall scary atmosphere makes it my favorite.
