Classic Trailer Theater: Dawn of the Dead

Pretty typical old school exploitation trailer in all but one regard. Listen to that narration; it's a standard breathless sales pitch, but pay close attention to those words: it's actually a pretty accurate reflection of Dawn's themes:

"We have spawned our own savagery! SOON it will consume US ALL! It is a horrible, hauntingly accurate vision of the mindless excesses of a society gone MAD!"

The way it's delivered, it almost sounds like a religious sermon.
