    Night of The Living Dead, no question. It was the first movie I watched on a VCR (old school!) and that end is burned into my mind for all time. Dawn was great, Dead was gory but there is only one Night!

    Night of the Living Dead. As far as gore & violence the movie was a break through for the highly important to where the horror film would go. it started the whole modern horror film/ zombie film & is the scariest in the entire series.

    Dawn of the Dead. I saw a midnight showing of it when I was 14 or 15 and if really blew my mind. The gore plus the feeling the film imparted that it really was the end of humanity.

    Definetly Night Of The Living Dead, because it was such a classic. It defined the zombie genre, really questions about civilization and society, it's one of those films that really makes you appreciate not just the horror, but the art.

    Dawn Of The Dead, favorite Horror Film period!

    I still remember buying the Anchor Bay VHS from my local mall (of all places!) It was around Halloween time and I was about 13. I took it home and watched it for the first time, and afterward I knew that it would be hard to find a Horror Film that could top it....and I still haven't found one to this day!

    Have to go with Dawn of the Dead. I love Night and Day, but I love Dawn of the Dead more because it was more gory than Night, and the plot was better than Day of the Dead, and because of the Makeup from Tom Savini, and the tagline "When There's No More Room In Hell, The Dead Shall Walk The Earth."

    The original Night of the Living Dead is my favorite. It is the reason most of the horror movies made since were made. Full of stark, doomed atmosphere and unforgettable images. It is a pure classic that is the perfect bridge between 50's-60's style atomic age horror/sci fi and the modern horror film.

    Night of the Living Dead is my favorite - I love Ben and the ironic ending. :) Though Dawn and Day are great too!

    Definitely NIGHT. When I was a kid I would have said DAWN, but the gore and blue faces and bright red blood just don't hold a candle to the atmosphere of the original. I could watch DAWN any old time, but NIGHT I'll only watch in October because it's just that special.

    Dawn of the Dead is my favorite. The special effect can be kind of cheesy, but I think it has an interesting story and likable characters.

    Dawn of the Dead for me. I still remember watching it for the first time with my older sister. I feel that characters in this movie are the most likable and realistic of any of Romero's dead films. I still wish that the motorcycle gang never showed up and each of them where able to live it out in the mall.

    Dawn of the Dead would be my favorite Romero "Dead" film. I enjoy it more and more every time I see it. I just love the whole "mall" setting, and the film just works so well on many levels.

    I actually used to prefer Day of the Dead more, but that's slowly moved to 2nd place over the years.

    Dawn of the Dead is my favorite simply because I think it's completely one of a kind and fascinating in terms of plot, style and overall substance.

    However, nowadays I kind of feel like watching the entire series (up to and including Land) if I'm going to watch any of them. Which actually means I haven't watched any of them in a long while. Must remedy this soon.

    Haven't seen Survival yet, but if I win a copy (*knockonwood*) I might have to do a marathon ... and give Diary another chance (ugh ...)

    Night of the Living Dead. Romero actually pointed out my reason for loving this in a documentary about EC Comics. He pointed out that, when making Night, he took a lot of time to frame the shots in a way that was similar to the EC comics he loved 15 years earlier. It absolutely shows, and it's absolutely one of the reasons that the film has an aesthetic quality that is completely its own.

    Dawn of the Dead -I love both the director's cut and the theatrical. This is one of the films that I could probably sit down and watch any time from start to finish and completely enjoy. I love to wait a couple of years to pop it back in again and enjoy. It is just a masterpiece in my opinion. I think Romero's first four films in the series are entirely rewatchable, but this and Day seem to just get better and better with age.

    Night of the Living Dead. I remember seeing this a lot on halloween when I was a little kid on TV so it has a special place in my heart. Add to that its a classic and I think holds up pretty well today and I have to give it my vote.
