'Land of the Dead' (2005)

Romero's Bush-era zombie film picked up on the consumer and economic themes of his second zombie epic and updated them for modern times. In this case, the zombies represented exploited and ill-served common Americans, forced to fend for themselves out in the wild, while the wealthy and living led decadent lifestyles trapped in their upper-class surroundings (represented in the film by the Fiddler's Green apartment tower). Eventually, the working class get sick of being kept outside and find a way in to lead more fulfilling lives (and eat a whole lot of warm flesh). Michael Gibson / Universal
