    Yep, it's pretty much crap. A film about Irish family feuds where Romero knows dick about Micks. The dialogue is awful and the story could be told in about two minutes including a tea break. OK that's unfair. There are some great little vignettes in the film and some surprising pathos.


    My top 5:

    1. Shaun of the Dead.
    2. Dawn of the Dead (original)
    3. Night of the Living Dead
    4. Return of the Living Dead
    5. Walking Dead

    Slightly off-topic but Zombie fans will, I'm sure, laugh as much as I did :)

    Never saw it, but saw the cover the other day. Redneck Zombies. I'm sure it's cheesy as hell and probably horrible, but c'mon... Redneck Zombies? You know you want to see it!

    I finally saw .rec the other day, after wanting to see it for quite a while. I wouldn't put it as a top 5, but it was better than expected.

    Dawn of the Dead (Original and remake)

    28 Days Later

    Resident Evil

    Quarantine (American remake of Rec)

    Evil Dead: Army of Darkness

    Shaun of the Dead for honourable mentions.

    Yeah same. Night, Dawn and Day are his best works. Everything after is relatively old-fashioned as zombie films go.

    I just recently recorded Night of the Living Dead since it was on TV, and I'm gonna try and make it through. For some reason I never can, and it's not even the black and white aspect of it since I love older films like Casablance and Citizen Kane, it's just kind of ...boring and slow

    I'm shocked at how many people I'm seeing list the Dawn of the Dead remake. Is it an age thing? I all but hated it.

    Dead Alive - by far.

    Night of the Living Dead (@MFB: It's hard to explain, but it's probably the "slow" that does it for me)
    Re-Animator
    Dawn of the Dead Remake
    Zombi Holocaust - really bad Italian cheese, cannibals, zombies, bad actors, but some decent gore.

    Imo it looked great and was one of the first recent zombie films to have them fast runners not lumbering idiots. Acting wasn't bad and the zombies looked grim as fuck. It's certainly better than all of the '....of the Dead' films that followed.

    SIMOOM Cutting Seams featuring Bruce Cambell's daughter Rebecca! Haha! I know its not a movie but it is a short film/music video and has been airing nationally at film festivals and winning awards nationally as well as landing a spot on Comcast's On Demand. :yesway:

    Edit: Why do videos sometimes embed and sometimes not embed here?

    Pffft. Zombies are lumbering idiots. If someone has to make them run fast to make his film scary, he sucks at making zombie films. I gave it a pass for 28 Days Later since that technically isn't a zombie film, but goddammit, Romero zombies are lumbering idiots (except Bub...), and making them run was... was... sacrilege!

    I also disagree that it was "certainly" better than the later ...of the Dead films. While those didn't live up to their forebears, I'd still rather watch them than that godforsaken remake.

    Perhaps I just like the original too much? That's why I wondered if it's an age thing. The original is "my" Dawn of the Dead. It's the first one I saw, and the one I was blown away by. Did most of the people who prefer the remake see it before the original?

    I dunno I think they add a different feel to it. I generally prefer running zombies now.

    Wow. :lol: Have you seen the Day of the Dead remake? That was horrendous. :lol: I dunno man, I mean I saw the original around the same time and I love both equally. I guess you either prefer the old school style or the style set out with new one. I like anything. :lol:

    Hell no I haven't seen the Day of the Dead remake. When I say "the later ...of the Dead movies," I mean the Romero ones, not remakes. I refuse to even consider watching the Day remake, because Day is my favorite of the original bunch, and if watching the Dawn remake made me angry, I don't even want to know how the Day remake would make me feel :lol:.

    Yes, I would rather watch Land or Diary again than watch the Dawn remake again. Land was disappointing, sure, but not on the level of the Dawn remake for me. That isn't to say that I'd hate all remakes, though, because the '90s remake of Night was actually pretty damned good. It helps that it was was directed by Tom motherfuckin' Savini, of course. Aside from a drastic plot change at the very end, he did it justice. That change did have me grumbling a fair bit, though :lol:.

    The new Day... is really bad. I don't think I even finished watching it. The Romero ones are okay, but Diary is the only recent film of his that I've liked. Not seen the Tom Savini one!

    Watching Survival of the Dead now. Half hour into it and I'm ready to turn it off. Pretty bland zombie movie, so far.

    :agreed:

    Though I did love Zombieland.

    And if we can count series, then I definitely have to add High School of the Dead. Awesome series

    Inspired by the thread I just finished watching "The Dead". It's a pretty quiet movie with few gore (but definitely some decent stuff there), but it's whole atmosphere is really neat and it does incorporate some of the modern influences like the lack of ammo/water supply as seen in Resident Evil (the games, not the Milla Jovovich jokes) & others. It's far from being perfect but I really did enjoy it as a recent, more "serious" take on the zombie genre.
