A tremendous zombie movie that is amazingly creative. It speaks originality and has a startling atmosphere, and is occasionally awesome.

Masterpiece! But it's my least favorite of the Dead Trilogy

I can definitely see this movie's influences on other zombie media. I enjoyed the setting a lot, especially since I live near the mall where this was filmed. It was neat to see how it has changed over the years.

I do like Night of the Living Dead more only because it was creepier. This one has great understated humor.
