    Dawn of the Dead, I enjoyed the theme of social isolation despite being suck in material avaliability.

    Original Dawn. I think I first enjoyed it as a youngin' b/c the idea of living in a mall was kick ass. They had EVERYTHING. And this was back in the day when they sold guns AND had skating rinks in malls.

    i think night. i love the black and white cinematography, and that vibe that comes from 60's independent cinema. dawn and day are a whole lot of gory fun, but night really feels like a piece of history.

    I'm torn between Dawn and Night. I'm gonna say Dawn. I like it for it's epic vision, especially considering it's modest budget. Just got Survival in from Netflix so I'm about to see how that one came out.

    Dawn of the Dead, it's for me what Star Wars is for some people. Horror and adventure never combined better.

    Dawn of the Dead. Saw it numerous times at midnight screenings and countless times via home video. It is the quintessential horror film in my opinion.

    Night Of The Living Dead has the edge for me.I had actually seen DAWN first (and loved it) but my first screening of NIGHT was kind of perfect.It was Halloween and I was alone,late at night.The film rolled out in front of my eyes and from it's first black and white image to the fadeout I was hooked.It's rough edges just seem to enhance the reality of the situation and even it's use of stock music somehow seems to work in it's favor.It still has a strange way of getting under my skin all these years later.That's the mark of a classic !

    Dawn Of The Dead. It has characters that you can really care about.

    Day of the Dead does a fantastic job of capturing paranoia on film. This film makes me legitimately anxious, and the ending is gore-tastic. Whenever I want zombies, this is where I turn.

    Night of the Living Dead, the single film that separates past horror from current horror.

    I'm gonna go with the Argento cut of Dawn of the Dead (Zombi).
    I like the music more and I think the pacing works better for multiple viewings.

    Dawn of the Dead. Saw it when I started getting into horror so it really sticks with me.

    Dawn is still the best of the genre. Even the blue make-up holds up well all these years later.

    Night of the Living Dead. In my opinion it's the best horror film of all time and a staple of local (Pittsburgh) culture. I grew up with this movie and wasn't out of the ordinary for it to be shown on a Saturday afternoon on a local station. What's crazy is that it can still hold it's creepiness factor after all this time.

    Deciding between Dawn of the Dead and Night of the Living Dead is tough, but I choose Night because it was more than a great film, it also opened my eyes to the fact that not all B&W films are dull. Without this realization, I doubt I'd have ever opened that door to classic cinema, and I'd be a lesser man for it!

    Dawn of the Dead, the Extended cut because the more the better.
    I actually saw this on the big screen a couple of years after it's original Theatrical run and it was a blast. Loved it ever since.

    For me my favorite has always been Day of the Dead. I loved the confined underground setting, the tension between the military and pretty much everyone else, and of course Bub. It was also the first Dead film where I thought the zombies were actually 'scary'. The opening sequence of the film featuring Dr. Tongue is also one of my favorite openings of all time.
