It used to be Day of the Dead for the loooooooongest time, but now that I have this amazing DVD box in my grasp, Dawn of the Dead (1978) is my favorite. I'm sorry, that movie just kicks so much ass on so many levels..

Day of the Dead.

Cooler looking zombies, better gore, just as pertinent social commentary as Dawn, and it has Bub.

Original Dawn of the Dead.
The setting, characters, story all correlate into the best. Honestly, I wasn't a big fan of it when I first seen it. After a few years I revisisted the film and noticed a lot of things I had missed before.

Day of the Dead is close behind though, I probably watch that one more than any out of the dead trilogy.

I agree with that, but Dawn of the Dead (orig) definitely is my favorite. It never gets old for me.

its a toss up between Day of the Dead and the original Dawn of the dead.

i really cant decide which one is better, it really all depends on my mood. sometimes i like a gorefest and sometimes i like the mythology behind the behavior of the living dead.

my favorite is night of the living dead (68.) it just scared me the most out of all the zombie movies i have seen. i do have to admit that i have only seen dawn of the dead and day of the dead one time each. shame on me. i'm gonna try to get around to watching them on dvd very soon.

So many good ones, too hard of a choice.

I'll say The original Night of the Living Dead. It was guerilla film making at its finest. I just like the amateurish vibe to it and how really raw and vicious it was for a movie of that time period. And the way George pushed the boundries was insane! It was one of the first horror movies I had ever seen, and I guess it just stuck with me.

Night of the Living Dead. I love how it's so old and black and white. Something about it not being in color makes it abit more creepy. The acting could of been better, but eh, it's old. I also like the not-so-happy ending. And how it came out at a time when these movies weren't so popular.

DAWN OF THE DEAD 1978!!! The cast, the music, the living dead with personality...THE MALL!!! I am also in love with my man Roger DeMarco..."Perfect baby...perfect" Ahhh, I just can't get over how awesome this movie is! Don't walk...run to get the new 4-disc set of this classic if you have not already done so!!! :D:D:D

Dawn of the Dead is so awesome. I can't even explain why I like it so much. It's just so good. I love the whole mall setting. The still shots. The motorcycle gang. EVERYTHING!

Romero just understood that era to a tea.

InfiniteFury

Without a doubt, "Day Of The Dead"! The plot, the acting is
actually good for once, the gore is convincing and brilliant and
not watered down like in these pseudo-horror fiascos-the "Resident Evil" defecations and "House Of The Dead" come to mind on that aside from being complete shit, and Bub is a
fascinating character. Not many zombies, it seems, could ever
become that docile. And Logan was brilliant. And insane.

My favorite zombie movie is the original Night Of The Living Dead since it had a huge impact on me and I love the fact that it's a very simple story. I'm sure that it was extremely shocking when it first came out. I was very scared when the daughter stabbed the mother in the basement of the house while the zombies were attacking and breaking in. The idea of somebody killing somebody that they've loved is very chilling in my opinion.

LOL, I thought the new improved Barbra was pretty good for a change. I didn't want the same exact film as the '68 version, so I thought this Barbra was fun and kick-ass. The afraid, do-nothing Barbra kind of annoyed me, but they are both so different and unique that it is hard to compare them really.

Sure she was fun, but the Barbara of the original acted that way to symbolize the stereotypical material woman of that time period.

I am not the biggest fan of Zombie (aka Zombi 2), but the make-up on the zombies is extremely well done. So rent it and try it out because although most of it is quite boring, a good portion of the end rocks! Overall I'd give it a 6 out of 10 and that is mainly for the zombies crawling out of their graves...which is great. I own it, but I really need to watch it again, as I have only seen it twice.

MMyers89
08-19-2005, 10:07 PM
Zombie seems slightly boring on the first viewing, but by the second and thrid time I watched it, I loved the son of a bitch. Its a great movie, and soooooo atmospheric, you can smell the zombies in it. Definitely give it a watch.

Couldn't agree more. The first time I saw it years ago, I thought it was a little on the boring side. Now after having watched it numerous times, I've learned to love the film.

Day of the Dead is my favorite. I think that it has the best mood, gore, and overall feeling than the other Romero films. I'm a big zombie buff, so I have a lot of other zombie movies that I've seen to compare it to.

Oh no, I totally agree with him. House of The Dead was a masterpiece of filmmaking. I loved the use of the bullet time camera tricks and the heavy metal soundtrack.

It was so much better than George Romero's films. Those movies put me to sleep.

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie... my secret favorite after Romero's films

Nightmareman88

The Return of the Living Dead.

In overall excellence, I'd say that ROTLD surpasses even Romero's masterpiece, Dawn Of The Dead. Maybe it's like comparing apples and oranges (satire does not equate to spoof), but they're both zombie flicks, and ROTLD is the best goddamned zombie flick I'll might have ever seen. The whole film just screams 80's style, wich just turns up the atmosphere in the film into the classic it has become. The 80's punk punk beats of the soundtrack is by far excellent, and seize to keep me attached throughout the entire film. The classic actor James Karen brings out most of the comical moments through his terrific and hilarious performance(in both ROTLD & ROTLD II) The black humor with an sense of slapstick humor, and yet serious level. Makes The Return of the Living Dead one of the most unique and quite orignal Zombie film out there, as it introduce a new set of elements for the Zombies, The first Zombie film ever featuring running Zombies, The hunger for Brains and damn a heck of alot other things to spread an eager of delight.


ROTLD is quite possibly the most cult classic and influential Zombie flick ever, right up there with Dawn of the Dead.

And if anyone is interesting in the Main theme for ROTLD, well you can just download it off here --------> http://rapidshare.de/files/14398314/Trioxin_Theme.mp3.html

The original Dawn of the Dead, but I like Day of the Dead too. Zombi/Zombi 2 had the BEST and scariest-looking zombies though, and the movie itself was very scary.

I gots SWEET love for ROTLD! :D
Mostly 1 & 2, not so much for the 3rd, it's not bad(I liked it more when it first came out, must be cause I was young?). The first ROTLD is definitely a classic, up there with Romero, just a different tone. Didn't John Russo have something to do with it? So there's your 7 degrees of George A. Romero... ;)

No not really. The film gives story credit to Russ Streiner and Rudy Ricci as well. The three originally worked on Night of the Living Dead, and decided a few years later to write a treatment for a sequel they called Return of the Living Dead. Well, GAR had started working with other filmmakers and was planning his official sequel Dawn of the Dead. So, Russo finished a novel and a script about flesh-eating zombies roaming the Pennsylvania countryside set ten years after NOTLD and was looking to sell it. A new producer Tom Fox bought it and the title rights, anticipating a similar success to Dawn of the Dead, backing it with his investor pals at Orion. He wanted Tobe Hooper to direct, after his work on TCM and Poltergeist. Then Fox, aware that GAR was doing Day of the Dead, decided the script resembled his films too closely and needed a major rewrite. When Hooper committed to Lifeforce, and recommended a new director Dan O’Bannon, a new script was born. Dan only used two elements from the original script: the name Burt Wilson. Everything else was his imagination. Russo then attached his name to the project again shortly before its release, novelizing O’Bannon’s script. Last names were invented by Russo, and a KGB subplot was thrown in, among other things. The filmmakers ignored this book in the posters, ads, etc.

Not to get too far off topic, but you should check out the region 1 then, cause I believe it has Commentary from Dan O'Bannon and a great "Designing the Dead" featurette. Good stuff.


Back on track. Dawn is probably my favorite(Shock!), but Night is a very close second. Night of the Living Dead is such a monumental film, before it was made most "Zombie" movies were about voodoo and people in "trances".

Now that I think of it, I like all zombie movies! :)

I'd include Land of the Dead if it hadn't put me to sleep both times I tried to watch it. I think Romero lost his touch after Dawn and Day...

That's a tough one, I like quite a few of them, My favorite would probably be the Original Dawn of the Dead, it's a masterpiece of brutality! Here's a couple other favorites:

Zombie (or Zombi 2) -the creepiest most realistic looking zombies
Night of the Living Dead (original) - got to pay respect to the one that started it all
The Beyond - just a sick, twisted, bizarre, insane horror film, love it!
Re-Animator - classic, very original and fun
Bride of Re-Animator - even more fun than the original
Day of the Dead - sick make up effects

Of course, I may get a lot of shit for this but I also like 28 Days Later. To be honest, I have no idea why, but I've always been a fan of running zombies and the 28 Days scene in England I believe it is, is great.

A "C" for the original Night of the Living Dead? Umm... why? :confused:

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate what the film has done for zombie films and horror films in general, but to me it was way too over the top. The music and the bad acting from most of the cast really got on my nerves. It wasn't scary and very rarely was it creepy. Thankfully the movie ends on a strong note and the actor who played Ben really did a good job, but the film needed more than a good ending, some good acting, and a somewhat creepy atmosphere.

I just prefer the remake for some reason. It's not scary either, but I just found myself enjoying it more.

And no, it has nothing to do with it being in color :winkgrin:

No, it's fine, I was just a little bit confused by that rating. :nodsmile:

The film creeps me out a lot, maybe it's just me. That sick girl in the basement on her knees sent shivers down my spine. :bigeyes:

Yeah, like I said, it's not completely devoid of creepy moments, but there were more times that the movie wasn't creepy than times it was.

For years I liked Dawn of the Dead. Hell, I still love it, but I am going to have to change my mind of what I think the all time best zombie movie is. I must go with Romero's Night of the Living Dead 1968. That as easily the scariest and most intense zombie film ever made.

You see, my problem with most zombie movies is that they are not scary. They are gorey, but lack the tense feeling of dread and true death. They do not have the iscolated feel of fear like the original Night of the Living Dead.

Night of the Living Dead (1968) is a true horror masterpiece.

That is the greatest zombie movie ever made, because in addition to having the blood and gore (which it did not have a lot of, but when it did have it was way more effective then future zombie films), it has suspense, iscolation, atmosphere, and dread.

The Evil Dead is not a zombie movie. It is a movie of demonic possession. Ancient Candarian demons possess the living and make them a part of the evil.

Despite that, it is one of the greatest horror movies ever made. I'll give it that. It is not a "zombie" movie though.

When will people realise that 28 Days Later is not a zombie movie.

They are not zombies, they have a disease, they are not dead, they have a disease, and most importantly, they are just infected people who do notfeed on other people, they do not eat them, they just get blood on them a lil bit...

Hehe. J/k, although i believe it not to be in the zombie genre, whereas many disagree.

And while i'm here, my favourite zombie movie is Night of the Living Dead. Romero's classic which started the whole thing, just a classic with a great, simple story.

Well, whatever they say, in my opinion, it will never be taken as a zombie movie, but it is my favourite horror movie and i love zombie movies, but it doesn't fit the typical description of what a zombie should be like. For starters, they are the living dead, in 28 Days Later, they are not dead, and that's enough for me. Plenty of other points would say that too.

But, as i said before many people do disagree with that, and fair play to them, it can be interpreted either way, and i'm happy with it with the way i see it, and am happy for people to call it a zombie movie as thats not exactly a bad thing.

28 DL had a great theme about how pointless it is to continue your existence solely for the sake of continuing your existence if you have nothing to actually live for, great performances, score, cinematography, some excellent character arcs...

PT is one of the best fun romps ever, combining extreme gore, and bad-ass action, and twisted humor in a so over the top manner that it's hilarious and entertaining as movies get.

Mine is 'Night of the Living Dead'

But...

You know, something just (cant resist…) dawned on me. It is now dawn and I finished ‘Dawn of the Dead’ for the first (!) time; I watched it after ‘Night of’, which I started last night. When it comes to this particular era of horror films, I had been rather slasher-centric until today; you see I’ve rediscovered Romero in a big way: I absolutely love Zombie films! It appears I have been missing out on quite a scene. Well, I won't miss it any more; from this day forward I salute those posthumous pals of yours and mine: the zombies. Some quotes and moments that immediately made me love it:

*Roger: “You alright?” Peter: “Perfect baby, perfect.”

*Peter: “You just wait out there sissy; were coming, and were ready.”

*Redneck (to Peter):” I SEE YOU....chocolate man!”

*Scientist (speaking to himself as much as anyone): “We've got to remain logical....we've got to remain logical...we've got to...it's that or the end.” (Said while Peter shoots roger in the head as a favor to a friend, attempting to kill him in order to prevent him from being dead.)

*Roger, in a makeshift wheelchair, being wheeled around by Peter as he guns those bastards down.


*Peter and Stephen, wheeling carts full of twice-dead mofo's through the mall to the sound of a marching band. (Reminiscent of mid-20th century college football tunes)

*Stephen turning cold, and subsequently arising for a morbidly jaunty romp through the mall.

*The intro/establishment of the rednecks! Cans of American Beer, shotguns, trucker outfits; hell they could shoot a fly off a pile of pig shit at ten miles, and spit on the ground while they brag about it.

*Very overt political commentary (I should have expected this from ol’ gorgey porgey). Essentially, every pertinent issue of the time is addressed, either through allegory or blunt statement.

*Sublime coolness of the four main characters

*Tom Savini's toxicologically correct effects. This is how gore is done.

*The film doesn't move too fast. It has excellent pacing.

Why was this move remade? I cannot imagine there' d be a reason/justification for it. I just don't see the point.

Lots of things in horror movies dont make scientific sense to me. The original will always be my favorite, but running was good for the remake.

wyatt s
04-17-2007, 07:17 PM
The reason that running zombies don't make any anatomical sense to me, god i can't believe i'm arguing the merits of anatomy in a zombie film, is because if you are dead and not only your brain but your muscle tissure your flesh and your bone is all beginning to decay at a rapid rate, not to mention that your body is drying at a high rate as well, It wouldn't make sense that they would be able to run atleast without constantly losing limbs. Plus It's easy to assume that zombies have only basic motor functions, how are they supposed to have the abillity to sustain a controlled movement like running?

That being said, I think the Dawn of the dead remake is a decent popcorn filck, it just won't be the classic in twenty years that the original is. However i have to say based on the trailer and the fact that the team behind day of the dead 2: contagium (fucking word doesn't exist dammit!) that the day of the dead remake will be very bad.

28 Days is not a zombie movie. You have to be dead to be a zombie. Hell, I don't even consider the remake of Dawn of the Dead to be a zombie movie, because they run, but that is being too technical.

The infected people are not the closest thing you can get to a zombie either. I think the possessed in The Evil Dead are the closest thing to a zombie without actually being a zombie. Hell Jason Voorhees in Jason Lives is more of a zombie then the infected people of 28 Days as well.

I think movies like 28 Days and the remake of Dawn of the Dead tried to re-create the zombie by trying to re-write some rules, but they failed because people don't buy into that shit. What a zombie is has been established by decades of film. Zombies are living dead creatures who walk and feed on living flesh. That is what a zombie is and any movie that tried to change that is wrong and a piece of crap.

I still like to think of them as a real life version of the zombie, though. I mean, flesh eating zombies is something that is basically fantasy, but I could see something like 28 Days Later happening in real life and that's what I like so much about those two films.

Just thinking about it...opinions really don't matter in this case(although needed to keep this thread going, haha), cause no zombie movie had the impact of Night of the Living Dead. Yeah, Dawn of the Dead can be your favorite...but in the annals of movie history, they'll only remember Night...


Having said that, it depends on the day of the week for which one is my favorite...since I watched Dawn(looks great!) on Blu-Ray last night, I'm going with that today, and whatever day I watch Day on Blu-Ray. I'm sure that'll be tops! lol, I'm just grounded in the fact that Night of the Living Dead is and forever will be the King...

Well I would say 28 Weeks Later but...some people would start a huge argument saying, there not zombies! blah! blah! blah!

So I would say Dawn of the Dead remake. Great film.

The original is a brilliant film.

It is a smart film that has good social messages while delivering lots of gore.

Low budget made it so that the zombies in the original Dawn were kind of generic and the special FX aren't up to the standards of today, but the story, the acting, and the social commentary make the film a classic. And they also make the film pretty timeless despite the aged FX's. I'd see it if I were you.

I understand that, but the quality of the movie is undeniable and the fact is that even though they don't look that great they are still pretty frightening when they need to be. Hell Romero created the modern zombie, and his direction of Dawn makes even the silliest of them come off great.

Day of The Dead it was really the 1st zombie movie I have ever seen. The setting is awesome, it gives a sesnse that these people are really screwed, very bleek/grim. The social elemets also help, it shows that even in a time like that the human race is still pretty messed up with all the infighting and all. Also the awesome gore Fx by Savini.

I kind of flip flop between Dawn and Day, but for the most part Day is my favorite Zombie film. I'm attracted to dark material, as far as movies go, and Day certainly was dark. I very much enjoyed it, and I loved the way Romero began experimenting with his own Zombie's making them gain intelligence. I especially loved the way he made the zombie's more sympathedic in this film, which of course he continued in Land, but in Day it was just so great.

Remember they are the recient and unburried dead so they are not going to look like skeletons. They are people whom have basically just died in the past couple days so decomposition has not really begun to rot them yet. If you notice, theyn get more and more rotted as each film goes by a time goes on which is realistic.

Time for a lesson from the zombie master.

If you want cool looking zombies without a plot, watch Burial Ground.

If you want a zombie movie that makes you think while being entertained, watch one of Romero's movies.

I think, for the most part, you're right. However, when I watch a Romero zombie movie, I know I'm in for something different than a standard zombie film.

Even Romero's most standard zombie film (Land of The Dead) is still above most of the zombie films that come out.

I'm of the opinion that just because the guy is fairly well off, or so I assume, means that he needs to suck it up when somebody makes money off of something he put out there while at the same time he gets nothing. The man put his time and energy into that movie when he made it and I personally believe he should be allowed to make all the cash he can off of it, and the fact that he really can't is very upsetting.

Without Romero's Night Of The Living Dead (1968), the modern, undead flesh-eating zombie wouldn't exist.

To add to what I said, there wouldn't be a 28 Days Later without Romero's Dead series.

Scriptwriter 'Alex Garland' acknowledges several sources as inspiration for his screenplay, notably John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids (1962), George A. Romero's "Dead" trilogy (Night, Dawn and Day) and The Omega Man (1971). Direct homages include Jim waking up in the hospital from The Day of the Triffids (1962), the chained infected being studied from Day of the Dead (1985), and the scene in the grocery store (people in the mall from Dawn of the Dead (1978)), the stop for supplies that saw a run-in with infected children (also Dawn of the Dead (1978)), and the military holing up against the plague with outsiders partially to deliberately include females (also Day of the Dead).

You are right on. Zombies existed before Romero, but he is the one that made them what they are today. Even the makers of RE have said that the Romero films were an influence.
