Dawn of the Dead

(1978)
A novel by

 
 
The classic novel that spawned the blockbuster cult film. Few motion pictures have achieved true cult status. George Romero's zombie trilogy-- Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead--are such films: grisly, innovative studies in horror that have shocked and entertained millions of viewers. They are rightly ranked among the true classics of modern horror cinema.

In Dawn of the Dead, the ghouls from Night of the Living Dead have returned with an insatiable hunger for human flesh, and a message that haunts the human mind. Young and old, black and white, their former lives forgotten, they fill the streets of our cities and run wild through our shopping centers, consuming everyone and everything they touch with the cure of living death. As four ordinary people take refuge in an overrun shopping mall and arm themselves against the onslaught, Dawn of the Dead becomes more than a bloodbath. In a world where life is a commodity, where sruvival is bought with guns, and where satisfaction is having free run of a department store, the dead will finally rule us all . . .

Robert Ebert called Dawn of the Dead "an ultimate horror film." It is that and more: a landmark film, and a powerful novel of a world not too distant from our own.
