    Though I really liked the Dawn remake, Shaun of the Dead was amazing! Good old school zombie action!!

    *Really* hesitant about SHAUN since it has comedy in it [I hate Dead Alive for example--I think it has more in common with Monty Python than George Romero] but will give it a chance. I think it's pretty safe to say that nothing will come close to DAWN [2004] for me, which has been the only horror film I've seen in years that made me feel as creeped out as the films of the 70s and [early] 80s. The movie was far from perfect, but it still worked for me as a horror film, and few films released over the last decade or so have done that for me.

    The big problem I had with 28 DAYS LATER wasn't about whether it was or wasn't a zombie film, it was that the second half of the movie was so lame. I think it's a case study of what happens when filmmakers who don't normally work in the genre try to make horror films. I almost NEVER take bathroom breaks during movies, but with 28 DAYS LATER I had no hesitation in stepping out to take a whiz about three-quarters of the way through it, because I knew I wasn't going to miss anything interesting.

    I'll be all over it if they ever release an official R1 disc.

    I have to still give the DAWN remake a slight edge [just because it's not a comedy] but it's very, very slight, because SHAUN was just as good in a lot of ways.

    I would say that the plot is quite different from Dead Alive. One of the few similarities that I see are the monkeys, but Dead Alive has a "rat-monkey" that turns people into zombies whereas 28 Days Later has infected monkeys that infect others with "rage."

    Also, how do you spell the plural of monkey?
    Monkeys? Or monkies? Or what?
