The title says it all...

I prefer George A. Romero... mainly because the Dead trilogy is the greatest "zombie" landmark in cinema... yeah, exactly.

I like Fulci... Zombi 2 had some amazing gore and nice... gore...

Your thoughts?

This isn't even a contest. George A. Romero all the way. You might as well ask "who's a better director, Orson Welles or Uwe Boll."

I would have gave Zombi 2 another shot, but I couldn't find it. I hated it at first and ended up throwing the VHS at the wall just because the movie was shit and it was getting to a great looking part when the movie ended.

GR is a better director from what I have seen and what the man has created.

The only director that I'd compare him to in the horror genre is probably Dario Argento. That guy churns out good movies. Albeit not zombie movies....

GAR...its no contest. His movies are smart, gory, political, dark, and fun. Fulci's movie are just, eh....well gory. LoL

Romero is a stinkin genious!!! I like Fulci, but I LOVE Romero! I can't think of one bad Romero film (out of the ones I've seen). However, Fulci's zombies are extremely impressive though, but Fulci's New York Ripper is the biggest joke! It's Donald Duck in heat!!! LOL

Just because they both made zombie films doesn't mean they have much in common. This is like asking if you prefer Michael Jordan over Wayne Gretzky. They both did their own things, just like these two directors.

But if you really want me to answer who I prefer, I'd have to say Romero. :p

Definatly Romero. Fulci tried to capitalize on Romero's success by creating Zombi 2. Which was an attempt at making the Italian people think it was a sequel to Dawn of the Dead, which was named Zombi in Italy. Plus, Romero's films are filled with satire, which is always a nice touch ;).

While I love Lucio Fulci's Zombie, Romero wins the contest. Night, Dawn, Day all pure classics of the horror and Zombie genre

that was not a corny attempt to fool italian audience,that title was meant as a tribute to Romero's movie.
And while Romero is the undisputed zombie movies director Fulci's filmography is much more various and complete than Romero's.
Fulci is also well known for his thrillers and comedies

Romero. I never got into Fulci's films to be honest.

Romero's films are the best, but I really enjoy Zombi 2 and The Beyond. But Romero's original trilogy is amazing, so he wins.

George is the best he's been making his great series since the 60's and each one is just as good as the first.

I think Land of the Dead is not "just as good as the first"

Lucio Fulci.

If I were to rate my fave horror flicks of all time, Romero's flicks would rate higher, but as a whiole I like more movies by Fulci.

Both have done solid work and while Romero is the more solid of the two I really dig Fulci.

Romero for sure.

Fulci is a master of horror, but he is no Romero.

Romero for sure.

Fulci is a master of horror, but he is no Romero.

Agreed. Dawn of the Dead is my second favorite movie of all time. For that alone he gets my vote.

I got to go with Romero. I love some of Fulci's films but Romero's films are just so well made and magnificiently crafted. And not only contain their fair share of those wonderful juicy bits we've come to expect from zombie flicks, but they also harbor real meaningful messages just below their surface.

Yes, Romero always made a point with his zombie movies.

That is a very tough choice, but I think as of late I prefer Fulci. Even though Dawn of the Dead is probably the best zombie flick ever, I put "Zombie" at a close second. Also, Romero hasn't really done anything good outside the Dead series. Fulci, I like several of his movies like The Beyond, House by the Cemetary, City of the Living Dead, Zombie. I like his style. Plus I think the make up and gore effects are better in his films. His style is more dreamlike and creative than Romero.

Put me down for camp Romero. Fulci was an awesome director, but the zombie genre really begins and ends with George Romero.

While I LOVE Fulci, i'd have to go with Romero on this one.

George Romero without a doubt.
