Before Zack Snyder set the internet ablaze with the demands for the famed #Snydercut of Justice League, he dove headfirst into horror with a directorial debut remaking the 1978 film Dawn of the Dead which ended up being a spectacular reimagining of the timeless classic.

The fast-running zombie epic is now often hailed for being a top-tier remake among the horror community and it worked to catapult Snyder’s career as well as writer/director James Gunn’s who wrote the screenplay for the film.

This week on the podcast, I discuss the 2004 film with Nhi Do (NarcoLeap, FREYA, Upstairs Amy) who worked with Snyder on his 2009’s superhero film Watchmen where she played the role of the Vietnamese Girl who is murdered by Eddie Blake/The Comedian (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in the pivotal character defining flashback scene.

Nhi and I geek out about Zack Snyder’s entire career with a main focus on his 2004 directorial debut, but along the way dive into some other exciting topics including: phobias, zombie science, Nhi’s childhood horror movie memories, and much more!
