Not a remake, but a reimagining. This is a reimagining of the George A. Romero cult classic of the same name. Dawn of the Dead is about a group of survivors holding out in a mall during the zombie apocalypse. The film is almost always about the zombies. Either it be about running from zombies, fighting zombies, talking about zombies, etc. Zeds are always at the forefront. The "down with the sickness" montage could have been left out, but this is overall a great zombie action movie.
