Nightmare Fuel Podcast--Episode Three--Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Good evening, my deviants!
I hope your shotguns are loaded, and your shopping carts are full of MRE's. We're going to THE MALL! That's right--some shopping, a bit of fast food, shambling living dead roaming about. Oh, and make sure to check out the two for one sale at S-Mart. They have a deal on zombie dismemberment and disposal kits.
This blue light special is a seminal work in the history of horror cinema. It has influenced countless imitators, homages, and spoofs. Shot in Pennsylvania's Monroeville Mall (which is still inundated with souvenir hunters) Dawn of the Dead runs head wound to bloody head wound with it's predicessor, Night of the Living Dead. Both films went onto influence pretty much everything else in the zombie subgenre.
Walk the mall with Johnny Zombie, as he offers a personal view of Dawn of the Dead.
