I generally don’t dig horror films a lot anymore, but I am very curious about this little wonder called Dawn of the Dead.
It seems to me that the film’s premise, in which the “dead walk the earth” and destroy the living in modern day America, is really just an awkward, video-taped wish fantasy on the part of Hollywood and our collective conscious. I wouldn’t go so far as others to say that we wish our own demise, but I do believe that within all of our desires for life and continuity there are kernals of death wishes and that our current fears of plague, terror, and mayhem inhere tenaciously within.
