Bret, David, and Alan discuss what is widely considered to be the greatest trilogy of zombie movies ever committed to film: George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968), Dawn of the Dead (1978), and Day of the Dead (1985).
Romero went on to make three more “Dead” movies before passing away in 2017 at age 77. Those films will no doubt be discussed in a later episode, but on the day of what would have been his 79th birthday, The Swearwolves pay tribute to his first three (and most iconic) zombie flicks.

Hey Swearwolves, we are catching up on the pods as we’ve had some crazy weather which kept us locked in at home. This is a great episode, with a great theme!
Dawn of the Dead has always been my favorite of the three, but it still creeps me the eff out! First time I ever saw it I was but a young lad and it always stayed with me as super scary. The little kids! YIKES!
I always thought that Day was the weakest of the three, but still good. However, after listening to this episode, I think I need to go watch it again as it’s been a few years since I’ve viewed it, and you all make some very good points. I think I need to see it with some fresh eyes.
