George Romero, legendary director of blood-soaked zombie movies, is back with what's being hailed as his most impressive production ever—a remake of his own
David DiCerto (Catholic News Service) finds it both meaningful and miserable. "What distinguishes Romero's cycle from other decom-poseurs, is his clever use of allegory to tap into the current political climate. … [It's] a smor-gores-bord of stomach-churning mayhem. Let's hope this franchise—unlike its reanimated corpses—will stay dead."
Many mainstream critics are surprised and delighted by Romero's return to form.
