Zombies apparently never brush. Witness the rotten chompers flashed by lumbering hordes of hungry undead in this dexterous thriller from title-worthy filmmaker George A. Romero, the master behind 1968's Night of the Living Dead and other horror classics. His latest should please even folks who don't normally like zombie movies; it boasts a solid plot, a political subtext and skillful performances (including Dennis Hopper as a villain). Not that it skimps on the gore. Discolored incisors gnash enthusiastically on limbs, entrails and other tasty human bits. Mm, mm, good. (R)
