Dead Ringers Episode 6: DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) + DAWN OF THE DEAD (2004)

Nolan is joined by Ben McBride and Paul Farrell to tackle George A. Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead (1978) and Zack Snyder’s Dawn Of The Dead (2004). The group discusses what new horror they discovered during the Halloween season before trying to wait out the apocalypse in two different zombie-infested malls.
