A third one? But the first two are so amazing, could the third one measure up? It doesn't quite have the highs that say "Dawn Of The Dead" has or the intensity of "Night Of The Living Dead" but it's still impressive and a must see. I don't think anyone who saw the first two would be disappointed with this necessarily because it does fit nicely with the first two and the style is definitely the same. It's filled with some great effects, some creepy zombies, and even some new ideas to add to the franchise. So by now the zombies have overtaken just about everything, only a small group of Military folks and scientists remain in an underground bunker. The Military folk find out that the scientists were using their men in experiments and are forced to room with the zombies. Bigger trouble is brewing though because the zombies have figured out their way to the bunker. Everyone is in danger, and the scientists are further in trouble when the Military folk turn on them because they don't believe in the experiments. The characters aren't quite as likeable as in "Dawn..." but it still sorta had that creepy claustrophobic and undeniable doom thing going on which is nice. It's filled with guts, action sequences and pretty much non-stop entertainment. If you've followed this trilogy at all then you simply must see this, you'll love it!
