Land of the Dead

George A Romero’s Land of the Dead (2005) is a satirical zombie action horror flick. There’s a slightly uneasy relationship between its political critique of George W Bush‘s USA versus Hollywood action movie cliche. The film was released almost in the middle of George W Bush‘s two terms as US president. The zombie hoard is a frightening antagonist, on a par with the corrupt elite led by the baddie, Paul Kaufman. His instinct, when the city falls into collapse, is to pack a bag stuffed full with money. As if that will save him.
