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

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.

Dunno why people pretend Romero was good, I saw the whole trilogy and none of the zombies look believable, even zack snyder did it much, much better than him lmfao. Night of the living dead was way better than this, but also mediocre.
