Land of the Dead (2005) is the forth installment of George A. Romero’s ‘Living Dead’ films.
When it was made it pretty much marked Romero’s return to the zombie genre, as it was his first zombie film since ‘Day of the Dead‘ (1985), which was released 20 years before ‘Land of the Dead‘…..so you can understand the excitement that was generated when fans found out that Romero was creating ‘Land of the Dead‘.
The film is not one of Romero’s best, but that is not to say that there isn’t plenty to enjoy here. When set against the original ‘Dead’ trilogy that preceded it, ‘Land of the Dead‘ comes across a little bit like the runt of the litter, however, it is way better that 90% of most modern zombie films that have been pumped out in recent years.
The film does have plenty of atmosphere, and some wonderful (classic Romero) zombie scenes. The other thing that horror and zombie fans will enjoy is the film is very bloody with hardly any CGI blood and effects – it’s all ‘hands on’ gore. So with that in mind, we thought we would revisit the film by posting this video showing the various kills in the movie by two of the stars – Asia Argento (daughter of Dario Argento) and Robert Joy. Enjoy!
