"An Obscenity of Violence"

On April 20, 1979 Dawn of the Dead came to Cincinnati:

I almost feel like apologizing for dredging up this Cincinnati Enquirer mini-review, but I think it illustrates how shocking the film's violence appeared:

Such wonderfully colorful writing! The version I saw, however, was exciting, uniquely plotted, wryly topical, well-acted, and, well, yes, relentless. I love how the writing and performances are torn apart while the direction, simply, "isn't that good."

And in case you were wondering Love at First Bite got a resounding four stars!
