    tell us your favs & why. ok here is my list...

    1. shaun of the dead - zombies & british humor...enough said!

    2. zombieland - zombies & american humor...

    3. night of the living dead 3 - kid loses girl in bike wreck but brings her back...true love?

    4. orig. night of the living dead - still scary after all these years!

    5. dawn of the dead (2004 film) - great re-make of an already great zombie flick.


    hmmm, maybe 5 isnt enough, should have made it top 10.

    just for kicks list any zombie movies to avoid...

    1. return of the night of the living dead - sounds like a great film, but its not.

    2. hood of the living dead - the cheezy motto was: "even the boyz in da hood cant stop them"

    Holy shit, M3CHK1LLA, you nailed the top five I had in mind when clicking on this thread!

    Your third choice should actually be "Return of the Living Dead 3," not "Night." Still, a very inventive addition to the Romero-style mythos.

    I might remove "Dawn" and put in "White Zombie," which I believe is the first zombie film. It doesn't follow the rules of Romero's later reinvention of the zombie, but there are many rooms in the House of the Undead.

    And, keeping in mind that rules change, and that even Zombieland had a change in the mythos with mad cow being the agent, I'll recommend the following for those who love zombie movies:

    28 Days Later (followed by watching 28 Weeks Later)
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (including the remake with Sutherland, as well as that one with Nicole Kidman)
    Carriers
    Re-Animator
    Cemetery Man (won't be what you expect)
    Fido
    The 1978 Dawn of the Dead

    I find it interesting that the original Night and Dawn movies are still regarded so highly. I agree.

    But for me, the most disturbing zombie movie I've ever seen is... Deadgirl. Made in 2008, this is a great movie, but EXTREMELY DISTURBING! Contains sexual situations which just had me covering my eyes in horror... and not because of any actions of any undead entity.

    ^ your right...it is return of the living dead 3. i dont think im gonna watch that deadgirl movie - thx for the warning.

    glad i started this thread cause ppl have mentioned flicks i havent heard of and some i need to watch again like planet terror. also cant wait for season 2 of the walking dead.

    the resident evil games & movies rock! the 28 days/wks series is awesome. i remeber the how scary it was to see zombies move that fast ( and yes, i consider it a zombie flick too)

    Cemetery Man for me too (or Dellamorte Dellamore). It was loosely based on the Dylan Dog comics from Italy which were super horrific.

    Living Dead At Manchester Morgue.
    Brain Dead (the Peter Jackson one).
    Dead Heat (Piscopo and Treat Williams. Fond Memories).
    And whilst they might not be zombies I thought PONTYPOOL was a totalling chilling movie with very little gore.

    I tried to like that Peter Jackson film (called "Dead Alive" here in the States) but ultimately just thought it was dumb. Ah, well, tastes differ.

    There's a movie I forgot to mention which was actually pretty neat, called "Aah! Zombies!!" It's about people who are trying to avoid bad situations, but don't realize they're zombies. It was an interesting take which I don't think I've seen anywhere else.

    If you guys like bad zombie movies, you HAVE to watch "Mutant Vampire Zombies from Da Hood." It was on Netflix for a while, and despite the awful name, effects, acting and stereotypes, it was so bad it was awesome :lol:

    I imagine it's a more recent "[...] of the Dead" films, so it's probably awful in my opinion. He lost me at Land of the Dead

    @MFB - I kind of liked "Diary of the Dead." I know, shades of "Blair Witch," but I thought it was pretty neat.

    It didn't make my first list, though, so that's probably saying something. *laugh*

    Yeah, I thought Diary of the Dead was surprisingly alright. It didn't really have that classic Romero feel of the first three, but it wasn't bad.

    i didn't see these yet, so these are some of my faves:

    dead and buried. it's on netflix and it is brutal. it scarred me (seriously) for life

    pet sematary 2. again brutal. "dead is better!" yeesh.

    evil dead. the first one. before it was funny. that violin music is fucking creepy.

    the serpent and the rainbow. "don't let them bury me... i'm not dead."
