The brainchild of horror maestro Dario Argento and living dead don George Romero, this 1978 sequel to the groundbreaking NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is a staggering success on every level. Vietnam veteran Tom Savini brought his real world experience to the world of cinematic special effects, presenting unprepared audience with a brand of gruesomeness that left an indelible impact on every subsequent genre film of the type. Despite this escalated violence and gore, even mainstream audiences were convinced by Romero's unusually intelligent arguments about consumerism and the impact of ubiquitous industry on modern man. DAWN's acerbic acumen and visionary quality has hardly dulled in the decades since its release; we dare you to settle in and see for yourself.
