That awkward moment when....

Your daughter has half of her face eaten off and is staring at you while you sleep. The Dawn of the Dead re-make is an epic zombie movie that I think should be a role model for other zombie movies.

Nothing can make a movie better than zombies mixed with one of my favorite bands, Disturbed. This is probably the only time I will ever say this, I think this re-make is better than the original. During this movie I'm not laughing my ass off at the pathetic zombies who move at the pace of a snail to get to you,  instead I'm shocked by how fast they move. I saw this movie when it first came out 8 years ago, so I was 11 years old, and naturally I was terrified and grossed out. I've seen it countless times since then, and each time noticing something different that makes me appreciate it even more.

The part that gets me every time though is the zombie baby, I don't know what original Dawn of the Dead the writer saw, but I didn't see any creepy zombie baby that gives me nightmares when I saw it. Everything about this movie should win an award, the actors play their parts phenomenally, the cinematography is top notch, and the editing is pretty solid. And the endless amounts of blood never hurt a zombie movie either.
