Day of the Dead (movie)

Day of the Dead (released 1985) is a horror film by director George A. Romero, and the final part of the trilogy begun with Night of the Living Dead and continued in Dawn of the Dead.

Day of the Dead deals with the zombie assault on a military establishment, satirizing the military mindset in the process. The film received the least enthusiastic critical review of the three films. Its production budget was severely curtailed and instead of the original $7 million budget, was completed on less that $3.5 million.

In spite of its lacklustre critical reception, the film has been noted for its special effects work, notably Tom Savini's design of the zombie "Bub".
