Ideas For Horror Movies That Were Too Brutal To Put On Film

George A. Romero’s “Dawn of the Dead” is one of the greatest zombie movies ever made. It’s abounding in gory deaths, sick social commentary, and plenty of undead tension, which undoubtedly continue to influence zombie cinema. While “Night of the Living Dead” kindled the fire, “Dawn of the Dead” ignited it. In “Dawn of the Dead,” survivors of a zombie outbreak barricade themselves in a shopping mall, taking on both consumerism and the undead as they endeavor to survive for as long as possible. In the filmed ending, Peter (Ken Foree) and Fran (Gaylen Ross) successfully escape the mall by helicopter. 

As outlined by Little White Lies, Romero originally scripted a much darker conclusion that would have seen Peter dying by suicide off-screen (a decision he chooses not to make in the filmed version) and Fran, now without hope, thrusting her head into the helicopter’s spinning blades. Speculatively, Romero was said to be so attached to the characters by the time they began to film the end that he couldn’t in good conscience have them killed so brutally. Disparate accounts exist as to whether the ending was shot, though as it stands, Fran and Peter survive and fly off into an uncertain, zombie-filled future.
