Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 1,6, Utrecht University (Media Studies), course: Remakes & Parody, language: English, abstract: “Dawn of the Dead”, which is also known as “Dawn of the Living Dead” and “Zombie: Dawn of the Dead” or “Zombie”, was issued in 1978. The director George A. Romero added to the title the tagline “When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth”. It is hard to match this movie with only one genre because there are aspects of horror, drama, thriller and splatter in it (this applies also for the remake). The movie originally was part of Romero’s zombie-series including “Night of the Living Dead”, that appeared in 1968, “Dawn of the Dead” and “Day of the Dead” from 1985. A forth movie “The Land of the Dead” is in preproduction. Apart from “Dawn of the Dead” another movie from this series was remade in 1990, namely “Night of the Living Dead” by Tom Savini, who also took part in the more famous movie “Dawn of the Dead”, both in the original movie and the remake.

Welcome to the Dead House. Three students: dead. Carly Johnson: vanished without a trace. Two decades have passed since an inferno swept through Elmbridge High, claiming the lives of three teenagers and causing one student, Carly Johnson, to disappear. The main suspect: Kaitlyn, "the girl of nowhere." Kaitlyn's diary, discovered in the ruins of Elmbridge High, reveals the thoughts of a disturbed mind. Its charred pages tell a sinister version of events that took place that tragic night, and the girl of nowhere is caught in the center of it all. But many claim Kaitlyn doesn't exist, and in a way, she doesn't - because she is the alter ego of Carly Johnson. Carly gets the day. Kaitlyn has the night. It's during the night that a mystery surrounding the Dead House unravels and a dark, twisted magic ruins the lives of each student that dares touch it. Debut author Dawn Kurtagich masterfully weaves together a thrilling and terrifying story using psychiatric reports, witness testimonials, video footage, and the discovered diary - and as the mystery grows, the horrifying truth about what happened that night unfolds.

In placing Romero's oeuvre in the context of literary naturalism, the book explores the relevance of the director's films within American cultural traditions and thus explains the potency of such work beyond 'splatter movie' models. The author explores the roots of naturalism in the work of Emile Zola and traces this through to the EC Comics of the 1950s and on to the work of Stephen King. In so doing, the book illuminates the importance of seminal Romero texts such as Night of the Living Dead (1968), Creepshow (1982), Monkey Shines (1988), The Dark Half (1992). This study also includes full coverage of Romero's latest feature, Bruiser (2000), as well as his screenplays and teleplays.

Zombie 1979: Life at the Dawn of the Dead is a richly-illustrated visual history and personal narrative describing the early years of the pop culture "zombie phenomena," inspired by the film Dawn of the Dead. During the early 1980s, under the ever-present threat of mushroom clouds on the horizon, apocalyptic movies paraded through dying Midwestern drive-in theaters and a new form of "zombie folk art" flourished in neighborhoods across suburban North America. This book collects end-of-the-world stories and snapshots from the waning years of the Cold War, and the dawn of the modern zombie.

Add a gurgling moan with the sound of dragging feet and a smell of decay and what do you get? Better not find out. The zombie has roamed with dead-eyed menace from its beginnings in obscure folklore and superstition to global status today, the star of films such as 28 Days Later, World War Z, and the outrageously successful comic book, TV series, and video game—The Walking Dead. In this brain-gripping history, Roger Luckhurst traces the permutations of the zombie through our culture and imaginations, examining the undead’s ability to remain defiantly alive. Luckhurst follows a trail that leads from the nineteenth-century Caribbean, through American pulp fiction of the 1920s, to the middle of the twentieth century, when zombies swarmed comic books and movie screens. From there he follows the zombie around the world, tracing the vectors of its infectious global spread from France to Australia, Brazil to Japan. Stitching together materials from anthropology, folklore, travel writings, colonial histories, popular literature and cinema, medical history, and cultural theory, Zombies is the definitive short introduction to these restless pulp monsters.
