Day Of The Dead, The Movie

Updated on August 30, 2012

One Of The Scariest Movies Ever

I've always enjoyed a good, and even some not so good, Halloween movies. I'm rarely frightened by any that I've ever seen. That all changed when I watched this movie for the first time.

If you're not familiar with this movie, it's the third installment of the original "Living Dead" movies. Like the first two, it didn't really have a big budget. This one takes place in an old mine that's attached to some military research facility. It's typical zombie fare, but there is one scene in this movie that gave me nightmares for a week. It was comical and scary at the same time. Read on to find out what it was.

The Scene That Gave Me Nightmares

The scene in this movie that gave me nightmares was where the research people are going down to the mine to try and get away because the zombies have escaped their confinement. They are running through an old mine shaft and someone takes a shovel and chops a zombie's head off just above the mouth. The head is laying on the ground with no mouth, but the eyes are moving and it's still trying to bite. I don't really know why this scene scared me so much, but I wouldn't go down a dark hallway for a month afterwards.

This is the movie the way I remember it when it was new. There's that cute picture of "Bub" on the cover. If you haven't seen this one, you need to. All fans of Zombie movies should.

      I've only seen the original B&W version, but it scared the heck out of me when I was a kid. In fact, I've got a copy in my DVD library, but it's still sealed.
