The apocalypse has started and zombies are now roaming the planet. Anyone they bite will turn into a zombie when they die so the human race is fearing for its life.
Four such survivors steal a helicopter and begin their hunt for supplies. They reach a shopping mall infested with zombies and attempt to hold it for as long as possible - against all foes.
Despite the apocalypse it's not all doom and gloom; Dawn Of The Dead is less a horror and more a comedy. While there are certainly elements that will make you jump, there are many more scenes that will make you snigger at the sheer variety of ways that zombies can be killed. Somehow, killing zombies has never been so... tasteful. That's not to say there is no violence against the human species. Yes, blood capsules at the ready; there are a lot of spilled guts.
There isn't much outside the screaming by the way of acting, but who cares. Since when has that ever mattered during a comedy or horror. The audience is there to be entertained by fake blood and rolling heads, and the more laughs they can have the better. I'm wondering if perhaps our society is a little sadistic.
Daft, mad and completely unrealistic. I love it!
