George A. Romero’s gut-chomping, game-changing, genre-defining zombie classic lurches back onto the big screen for a scream-filled 45th anniversary celebration of the original uncut theatrical version, on the same weekend it was released to U.S. theaters in 1979!

Dawn of the Dead was first released overseas in 1978, but debuted in the U.S. on April 13th, 1979, and now, for the first time in decades, the film is being re-released in cinemas to terrify a whole new generation of horror fans who have never seen it on the big screen. Experience this legendary fright flick the way it was meant to be seen, and pray there’s a shopping mall nearby!

Dawn of the Dead is one of the best horror films ever made – gruesome, brilliantly crafted and savagely merciless in its satiric view of the American consumer society.” – Roger Ebert

As hordes of ravenous zombies swarm over the U.S., the terrified populace tries everything in their power to escape the attack of the undead, but neither cities nor the countryside prove safe. In Pennsylvania, WGON-TV traffic reporter Stephen (David Emge) and his TV producer girlfriend, Francine (Gaylen Ross), escape in the station helicopter, accompanied by two renegade SWAT members, Roger (Scott Reiniger) and Pete (Ken Foree). Amid mass hysteria, the group retreats to the haven of an enclosed suburban shopping mall to make what could be humanity’s last stand. Featuring delightfully gruesome SFX by legendary makeup artist Tom Savini, a killer score by Goblin, and large doses of social satire to go along with all the flesh-ripping mayhem, George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead is the ultimate zombie classic. (Dir. by George  A. Romero, 1978, USA, 127 mins., Not Rated)
