Dawn of the Dead (1978)

maverickEpisode 175: Romero waited 10 years to release a sequel to "Night of the Living Dead," but when he did, he had the support of fans across the world as well as other filmmakers! Italian horror-master Dario Argento offered up his house so Romero could write undisturbed, acted as script supervisor, and even wrote and performed the score (with his band "The Goblins"), all in exchange for the editing rights to the European release. This film solidified Romero's rules for zombie films, rules he would follow in every other "Dead" film he'd ever make. This one, in color, was going to be assigned an "X" rating by the MPAA due to violence alone, so Romero released it unrated. Were it any other filmmaker, and any other film, this would have spelled disaster, but everyone wanted to see this film, so distributors actually sent it to theatres unrated. The end result is the 2nd seminal zombie film, this time taking place in an early fully-enclosed shopping environment we would come to know as a "mall." Plus, the trio reveal which first-time (for them) genre they'll be tackling for the next pairing!
