 Day of the Dead often gets that "Runt of the Litter" status when people look at the original 3 movies and pass judgement.

Like you Robert, I think it's a bloody fine film. Romero should be rightly proud of his accomplishments.

 I actually find Day of the Dead more entertaining than Dawn.  Let the backlash begin!

 I grew up a huge fan of Night and then in high school of Dawn.  I was afraid for years to watch Day and when I finally did I HATED it like I have hated few movies in my life.  With the exception of the great effects.

But then about 6-12 months later I found myself thinking about the movie and having an inexplicable desire to watch it again.

I gave it a second watch and fell head-over-heels in love with it!  

It was like seeing a completely different movie altogether.  It is my favorite of the three, though some days I have a stronger urge for some good old Dawn.  Day is underrated and often underappreciated, I hope more people see it and enjoy it.  I've read the original screenplay and you can see where some of the themes and concepts that didn't make it to the scaled down final film were transported into Land of the Dead.

 
Side note - One of my bloody cats vomited a few weeks ago on my booklet for the special edition DVD and ruined it and I nearly cried!

 I love this movie, everything bout it was great,  I just hope romero can out himself with one more Zombie movie,  the mother of all Zombie movies one last run...

 Bob, you have "Wicked, Wicked" listed under horror. It's a rarely screened gem which I've seen and written about for Shock-o-Rama, but I can't find any information about a release on the net. Do you have any other information? MGM/Warner has the licence and I'd heard they were cleaning it up for the Warner Archive movie on demand.
