Day of the Dead
The Return of the Living Dead because it's much fun and alongside Young Frankenstein one of the few horror comedies that work.
Zombie 2 for the Eye Gouging scene. Also because when it came out in 1979, I was 10 years old and really wanted to see it, but it was rated X. About 3 years later, I was able to rent it on VHS from National Video, and it blew me away.
Return of the Living Dead is just too much fun and has held up well over time. I was leaning toward Dawn of the Dead but I love Return more.
Living Dead At Manchester Morgue for me as it was shot just a short 20 minute drive from my house in Derbyshire and I used to run across those stepping stones in the river scene when I was a kid!!!!
Dawn Of The Dead (1978)
Not only my favorite Zombie movie, it's easily my favorite Horror movie of all time.
Night of the Living Dead. One of the first zombie films I ever saw.
The original Night of the Living Dead - you can't beat a classic.
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (1985)
Which DVD is that you have as a prize, the US or the UK version?
It’s too difficult for me to decide really...
Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead are just seminal masterpieces in the genre, yet they are both extremely important for different reasons. One is more bleak, vicious, and completely driven by atmosphere. The other is an apocalyptic and satirical black comedy. These two films paved the way for how our culture would further view the typical zombie we all see and enjoy today.
Sure, Zombi 2 is a gore classic and Return of the Living Dead is a fun ride and Cemetery Man has exquisite and beautiful story telling….but none of them match the importance of Romero’s first two films in his “Dead” series. As far as I am concerned, GAR belongs with the likes of say a Bram Stoker or a Mary Shelley.
Goddamn…since I can’t decide, I’m going with Bill Hinzman’s Flesheater. Ha!
Romero's Dawn of the Dead for me. After Carpenter's Halloween it's my favorite horror film of all-time. Romero's awesome script, pitch perfect characters, Savini's effects, and the epic sweep combine to make this one The Godfather of horror.
Return of the Living Dead.
Love the look and style of the zombies, the witty script, special effects, ect.
I'll go funny, my favorite is Shuan of the Dead. You've got red on you.
I don't know if it's my favorite zombie movie, per se- there's just so many to choose from, but the first Return of the Living Dead is one that I return to over and over again as it was one of the few movies with punk rock characters that didn't make them one dimensional. As a punk rocker/goth in the early eighties, I felt like somone had made the movie "for us" inside of poking fun by creating caricatures. Amazing soundtrack too- still listen to the Jet Black Berries!
Zombie for me. The 70's look and feel of the movie gets better with age. I love the idea of traveling to an exotic locale only to find that the dead are slowly and continuously coming after you. The four main characters play well off of each other and the gore is plentiful. The theme music is a favorite of mine and on many nights I will look it up on YouTube to give a listen. Zombie is a movie that I can watch over and over again.
The original Dawn of the Dead for me. I've seen the film over 100 times and it never gets old. Very satisfying in the gore ,action,drama, and suspense departments.
There's a list of great zombie flicks I could think of, but one of my favorites is Braindead (Dead Alive). Wacky, gory as hell, a kung fu priest... everything about it is great.
The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
Just because it's 80's awesomeness, great one-liners, great practical effects, and Linnea Quigley!
Return of the Living Dead for me.
I had a tough time choosing. so these are my two choices Undead or Dead and Breakfast. With my runner-up being Idle Hands. I went with these cause they're different. First Undead it's got action, comedy, aliens & zombie fish. A complete total package & a hell of a good time. I went to see it at a midnight showing & bought the uncut U.K. dvd that morning online. Now with Dead & Breakfast again saw this as a midnight showing during a fest in my home town & absolutely loved it! (Cause really how can you not love a zombie musicial that knows how to make fun of itself?) This film was campy for all the right reasons & didn't spare on gore. It was funny, the pacing was exactly where it needed to be & the songs were catchy. That & it had David Caradine & you can't go wrong there. (We miss you brother).
