Ep. 387: Day of the Dead (1985) - Shocktober 9


It's Shocktober 9, Bay-Bee! And we've handed the reins over to Dalton, who is turning 30 this month. To celebrate, he gets to do the programming all month long with one caveat—all the movies have to be at least 30 years old. For his first pick, Dalton picked a banger as he chose George A. Romero's Day of the Dead. The third piece of the Dead franchise, Day of the Dead follows a group of scientists and soldiers trying to figure out their next moves in an underground bunker. This week, we're talking neoliberal politics, the impact of Day of the Dead on the zombie genre, the use of violence and gore, and the film's ending. Tune in now to hear us wax as poetic as we can over this one, and stay til the end to find out what Dalton's selected for next week!
