We’re continuing #Shocktober2022 with an episode on George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead Released in 1978, the film is a stalwart of the zombie film pantheon. Ostensibly picking up after the events of Night of the Living Dead, the film stars Gaylen Ross as Francine, one of a handful of people trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. She and the others find refuge in a mall where they rebuild a facsimile of contemporary American society.

Father Malone (Dark Destinations) and Jamie Russell (Book of the Dead: The Complete History of Zombie Cinema) join Mike to discuss the film. Interviews feature Gaylen Ross, John Amplas, and Jon Towlson (author of the Devils Advocates book on Dawn of the Dead).
