    The late great Lucio Fulci had a seasoned career in all genres, but among all his horror films, it's the zombie films that get the most love today. Right now it's CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD getting the most love with Blu-ray releases from both Blue Underground and Arrow, but there are plenty of others worthy of accolades. Which of his handful of undead pictures is your favorite?

    City of the Living Dead. It's excellent!

    Zombie is a nice second, with Cemetery and Beyond following.

    Zombi 3 is a piece of shit. Haha

    City of the Living Dead for sure.
    Can Zombi 3 even be considered a Fulci flick?

    I love Zombie, City of The Living Dead, and The Beyond, I think they are all # 1, but I chose The Beyond, just a little above the other 2, but just a little. It was almost to hard to decide between the three of them.

    @Rhett-
    Did you include Zombi 3 on here for completist sake or did you include it just for laughs?
    Regardless, as expected, my vote is for The Beyond.

    1) City of the Living Dead
    2) The Beyond
    3) Zombie
    4) House By The Cemetery

    House would've ranked higher than Zombie had Bob only bit the dust sometime during the first reel. Zombie 3 didn't feel like a Fulci movie to me at all.

    After some deliberation I went with Zombie. There's a lot to like about The Beyond and City of the Living Dead but at the end of the day Zombie just stands out more to me.

    1) HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY--just a BEAUTIFUL film IMO, every frame a work of art, with a tremendous musical score.

    2) THE BEYOND

    3) CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD

    4) Don't really care too much for the others.

    HBTC will allways be a favorite. IIRC it was the first Fulci I ever saw and I was stunned by the beauty of it :D

    And don't forget the most thoroughly annoying child in the history of cinema.

    Ofcourse it's not the kid perse who's annoying, it's the dubbing people find annoying.
    I always wondered how the movie would play in Italian, but the NoShame release didn't have English subs.

    I know...
    I usually don't mind the dubs in these films since even the original Italian audio was dubbed in after the fact- but "Bob" makes it unbearable.
    If I had a version of this film with an Italian language option and English subs, I would watch it that way. The only other film I currently do that with is Deep Red since I finds the subs less distracting than the back and forth between English & Italian.

    First three on the list are all great choices, but City of the Living Dead stands out as the best in my opinion. Gloomy atmosphere all around, cool soundtrack, and Christopher George.

    Zombie was the easy choice for me. I can watch that one over and over, it is one of my favorite horror movie scores also.

    It's The Beyond for me by a hair. Zombie, House by the Cemetery and City of the Living Dead are not far behind at all. Zombie 3, meh - the flying head out the refrigerator kinda killed it for me :)

    Zombie for sure. Still one of my favorites.
