The Great Scenes # 25: Day of the Dead (1985)

Directed by George A. Romero

I love zombie movies. They're my favorite horror subgenre. No filmmaker has ever made them better than horror maestro George Romero. He created the most famous take on the zombies which many writers and directors have taken to heart and became a trope common in many post-Romero zombie flicks. Starting with the groundbreaking Night of the Living Dead, he has made a series of acclaimed horror zombie movies which combine gory scares with dark comedy and social satire. Day of the Dead is my personal favorite. This spectacularly gory scene is one of the reasons why.

Man if zombies were able to do this then we're screwed, imagine if they could "at least" manage a rifle.

Pinoy ka pala pare, sup?

That was pretty damn gory. The zombie saluting was a nice touch.

I love how Bud gives Rhodes a sarcastic salute as he's being ripped apart. Awesome scene.
