This film is a great satire and critic to the materialist society, not many horror films are able to transmit this kind of message in such an effective way like Dawn of The Dead does.

It's interesting that it is an horror film but I watched it much more like and adventure. A lot of action combined with humour and gore! I remember watching it the remake at the theatre when it was released, back in 2004 and it scared me a lot. Probably because I was 14 years old.
Considering that this a film from the 70's the make-up and the special effects are very good! The soundtrack was good too, helping to create the right atmosphere for each scene.

My biggest complain about this film is his duration, for me it's a little bit too long. At certain point it made me question when it was going to end.
