    So I'm a major fan of zombie films.

    I've seen all the George A. Romero films except for the remake of Day of the Dead, 28 weeks and months later, Shaun of the Dead etc.


    Anyone reccommend me some more? Nothing pre-70s if thats okay, but I don't really mind if they are small independant films. I just want more scary times :)


    And feel free to discuss the films themselves of course.

    Dead Alive
    Bad Taste (hilariously bad it's good)
    Evil Dead 1&2
    Return of the Living Dead(theres about 5 movies in this series)
    Reanimator

    If you by chance have xbox 360 get left for dead. I played it yesterday at my friends house and can tell you that it is THE greatest game ever. Seriously I love that game.

    The genre has a lot of over the top gore that make you cringe while at the same time you find yourself laughing your ass off. Dead Alive and Bad Taste are like that. Dead Alive is the better of the two and hilarious. Bad Taste is well, bad, but it's meant to be. Favorite quote: "Suck my spinning steel, shithead!" said in an Australian accent(it's an Aussie movie) right before chainsawing an alien "zombie" in half.

    Edit: New Zealand not Australian as Mattayus pointed out, sorry!

    I don't even own an Xbox but I'm seriously thinking about buying one now. Though I really hate paying so much for games. I'll likely just stick with the ps2 + $15 each used games. Though If I owned that game I'd never need to buy another for a long ass time. Damn't what the fuck I hate thinking shit thru. :lol:

    Dude get hold of Braindead (someone already suggested it, but it's called Dead Alive in the states, Braindead here in the UK).

    It's a kiwi zombie film made my Peter Jackson before he got big, and it's just mental. Sick, gory as all fucking fuck, and outrageously funny.

    Lol yeah I have that game its fucking awesome. Even my mum likes it :lol:

    I agree :D lol they arent uncomfortable horror movies like Hostel, you can watch them and its gross but funny as hell at the same time.

    Ash from the Evil Dead series is one of my favourite movie characters ever, they need to make a new film of that for real.

    Thanks I'll defs check that one out :) I knew Peter Jackson made a ridiculously gory film before he was big, didn't know it was a zombie film :p

    :agreed:
    Bad Taste was also directed by Peter Jackson and I think it was his first. Definitely not as good as Dead Alive(Braindead) but worth a watch if you're a fan of the style and bored.

    Get it for PC through Steam dude!

    Hate to nit pick dude, but 28 days and weeks later are NOT zombie movies. They're infected people. I haven't watched them in awhile (because I hated 28 days, weeks was okay) they didn't even eat people. They chased them, then puked on them, then the people they puked on proceeded to run around and puke on other people. In any case, they could be killed by non headshots, and they didn't come from the recently deceased.

    Might be a small difference, but it's just one of those things that annoys me :lol:
