Friday, Jul 8 at 7:00 pm
July 8: Redstone Theater
July 16: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Zack Snyder. 2004, 100 mins. DCP. With Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames, Jake Weber, Mekhi Phifer. Before Synder moved over to big-budget comic book blockbusters, he made his mark in the horror genre with this ambitious remake of Romero’s 1970s zombie classic. As an all-out zombie assault gets underway, a group of survivors make their way to the local mall; here they must work together to survive and thrive, which proves more difficult than anyone could imagine. Snyder sacrifices much of the black humor prevalent in the original for a deeply cynical atmosphere, complete with bleak, washed-out colors, but keeps the pressure high with claustrophobic set design and the addition of fast-moving, highly aggressive undead monsters.
