DAWN OF THE DEAD
7MATE, Friday, 9.45pm, AV15+ ( 2004)
Horror fans should give the ultra- gory and surprisingly scary remake of George A. Romero’s 1978 zombie classic a chance. Influenced as much by 28 Days Later as it is by its predecessor, the killer premise sees a virus run riot and transform the living into undead flesh- eaters, who terrorise survivors in a suburban mall. Among the trapped group are a feisty nurse ( Sarah Polley, pictured), an expectant father ( Mekhi Phifer) and a burly cop ( Ving Rhames). Director Zack Snyder keeps the gruesome mayhem coming fast.
