    Anyone ever see White Zombie? Thinking about checking it out but due to it's age not sure if it's worth it

    ...and yes, it is responsible for the band name

    I came to say... Undead ... If you like ash from evildead series you will like the hero in this movie.. he's really epic with one liners ect...

    Evildead2 is so awsome... freaked me out when i was young. I remember watching it with my drunk parents at about age 6.

    The next one is special... Fucking great...
    on the cover it said.. "the american answer to sean of the dead"

    I like Shaun of the Dead... but liked Zombieland a lot more. That was much better than I was expecting.

    For the non-spoofs... I've seen the old stuff too, but prefer the newer stuff like the Resident Evil series and modern Romero stuff like Dawn/Land/etc... of the dead.

    I liked 28 Days Later, too. I don't nitpick it, just like I don't nitpick zombies that can run. ;)

    Zombies!!

    The Dawn of the Dead remake was just great...but more recently:

    Dead Snow was actually pretty cool for those who can stand subtitles - Nazi Zombies!

    ...and another that's generating some buzz called Zombies of Mass Destruction which was attached to the latest 8 Films To Die For (which I usually think are terrible).

    Not one of the better 30s films by a long chalk. The zombies are more in the traditional mould, Haitian peasants killed off by the villain (Lugosi) and then dug up and resurrected as slave labour. Lugosi, in the meantime, is interested in the 30s heroine with the kohl eye make up and the fried egg tits. It's interesting enough as part of the genre, but not a great film at all.

    For something that explores the zombie legend with some attention to detail, try The Serpent and the Rainbow.

    I love B movies, but to me, B movies and zombies don't mix, I need more serious zombies! There's not enough :( And 28 weeks was a bit of a let down, after 28 days being so good. IMO

    I liked 28 weeks later as much as I liked 28 days later, just in a very different way... the story and whatnot of 28 weeks was pretty stupid/redundant, but there are just some of the most intimidating/awesome scenes in that movie it more than makes up for it (bombed out city getting gased, and 3 gas-mask wearing guys with flamethrowers going through killing everything that moves... best scene in the movie :eek:)

    It's been suggested twice in this thread, but Dead Snow is AMAZING. Some of the death scenes are pretty brutal. And there is TITS!

    Agreed, it was a little more OTT than 28DL but not in a bad way.

    I remember no tit scene, and I would.

    I Am Legend is good, but I wish they'd gone live action for the infected instead of CGI, just doesn't look realistic. Would've been a meh film if it weren't for Smith's great acting.

    I really want to see The Road.

    Bahahaha. The Cannon group is so fucking hilarious. They'll exploit damn near anything, and the Golan/Globus brothers are silly. I wonder if this was to exploit the publicity and hype surrounding The Return of the Living Dead... anyways...

    My favorite Zombie films are:
    Shaun of the Dead
    Return of the Living Dead [Sexy Linnea Quigley is nude throughout most of the film]
    Zombieland
    Night/Dawn/Day of the Dead
    Night and Dawn remakes

    I think that's about it...

    Bump, because I watched a French zombie film called 'La Horde' today, and really liked it. This film actually has characters! There is some attachment to them that isn't so common in zombie films nowadays, where the characters are either bags of dull meat waiting to be killed, or two-dimensional cardboard-cutout erveryman heroes. The characters in La Horde are fleshed out nicely and not just vessels through which to tell a half-assed zombie survival story. That, and the visuals are gritty, horrific and awesome. Well worth seeing.
