So, if you read my previous post you are aware that I watched Dawn of the Dead last night. Believe it or not, it was actually the first zombie movie I'd ever seen. The zombie movies have never been at the top of my horror movie must-see list simply because they just don't seem like they would be all that interesting to me. Really, how scary can a reanimated corpse be? They are not intelligent killers. They basically just use force and mindlessly wander seeking living humans on which to feed. In Dawn of the Dead, they couldn't open doors, climb, or band together to accomplish a task. At best, they basically just mob whatever comes their way.
Maybe the right zombie movie could change my mind, and I'm willing to try others, but Dawn of the Dead did nothing to convince me otherwise. Don't get me wrong, it was entertaining enough to watch, I just don't think I'd go out of my way to watch another one. I do have Night of the Living Dead on my DVR, so eventually I'll get around to watching that. And maybe it'll change my mind. I just don't think zombies are that scary.
