Zombie: Dawn Of The Dead


Are you all right?

Shit really hitted the fan.

That's a whole different study.

But if we knew that, we could...

We don't know that!

We gotta operate with

what we do know!

- I'm still dreaming.

- No, you're not.

My turn with the coat.

I'm triying to explain

exclusively the facts...

The guys on the crew are going crazy.

A couple of 'em flown the coop already.

I don't know how long

we can stay on the air!

Ok, check that camera!

Who has camera two?

Who the hell's on camera 2,

a blind man?

Roll the rescue...

Roll the rescue stations!

Got a report that half those stations

have been knocked out.

- Get me another list!

- Sure, I'll just pull it outta my ass, right?

I don't believe that, doctor.

- Do you believe the dead are returning to life?

- I'm not so...

Do you believe the dead are returning

to life and attacking the living?

I'm not so sure what

to believe, doctor

All we get is what you people tell us.

And it's hard enough to believe...

It's fact...! It's fact...!

It's hard enough to believe

without you coming in here...

You're not running a

talk-show here, Mr. Berman!

You can forget pitching an audience

the moral bullshit they wanna hear!

You're talking about abandoning

any human code of behaviour...

Frannie, get on the new list of rescue stations.

Charlie's receiving it on the emergency room.

- Rescue stations list?

- Half of those are inoperatives as of now.

Charlie, these are rescue stations.

We can't send people to inoperative rescue stations.

We've had old information on the air

for the last 12 hours.

- Kill the old ones.

- Givens wants to!

Kill'em Dick! Tell

Givens to see me!

... public figures like

yourself that this situation is been...

... you're

not telling me...

... by the public

You're not listening!

You're not listening!

We've this situation for the last 3 weeks...

What does it take?

What does it take

to make people see?

People aren't willing to accept

your solutions, doctor.

And I don't blame them!

Every dead body that is not

exterminated becomes one of them.

It gets up and kills.

The people it kills

get up and kill!


Sit down and type that up.

You're dropping my question.

I think Foster is right. We're loosen it.

Yeah, we're blowing it ourselves.

A dead body must be exterminated.

Either by destroying the brain or severing

the brain from the rest of the body.

- You must be out of your mind!

- This situation must be controlled before is too late.

...multiplying too rapidly!

What the hell is going on?

Who kill those supers?

Frannie, who told you to

kill those supers?

Nobody. I killed it.

They are outdated.

Do you know you're on air?

What the hell is going on?

I want those supers on

the air all the time.

Without those rescues

stations on screen...

every minute people won't

watch us. So they'll tune out!

Are you willing to murder people

by sending them out to

stations that haved closed down

I want that list up on the screen

every minute that we're on the air!

- Anybody need a ride?

- What the hell are you doing?

Get back on this console!

What is this? A news show or

a football game?

Get that idiot off the air!

Officer, stop those men!

Lucas, get back on this console!


Get somebody in here that

can run this thing.

Get that fucking idiot off the air!

Get that fucking idiot off the air!

Triple pay!

We're staying on the air!

F*ck off! F*ck off!

Now, Doctor Foster. The public

needs facts. What do you have

to give us?

They kill for one reason.

They kill for food.

They eat their victims.

You understand that, Mr. Berman?

George A. Romero

George Andrew Romero (February 4, 1940 – July 16, 2017) was an American-Canadian filmmaker, writer and editor, best known for his series of gruesome and satirical horror films about an imagined zombie apocalypse, beginning with Night of the Living Dead (1968), which is often considered a progenitor of the fictional zombie of modern culture.

Aside from this series, his works include The Crazies (1973), Martin (1978), Creepshow (1982), Monkey Shines (1988), The Dark Half (1993) and Bruiser (2000). He also created and executive-produced the 1983–88 television series Tales from the Darkside. Romero is often noted as an influential pioneer of the horror-film genre, and has been called an "icon" and the "Father of the Zombie Film". more…
