  1. Day of the Dead, because I love the storyline with Bub and the gore effects are killer in this one.

    I think Day of the Dead has the best FX of all Romero's Dead films, but Dawn of the Dead is still my favorite. The characters sell the movie best for me, plus I always liked the trapped in a mall setting. Those damn bikers fucked it all up though!

    Day of the Dead. Night and Dawn are good, but I like Day a bit more for the stuff with Bub and the amazing effects.

    Survival Of The Dead Contest

    This is a tough one. But, if I had to pick one, it would have to be Day of the Dead. The reason for my pick is not only because it had some of the most ground-breaking gore ever filmed up to that date, but because I first saw it at an all night Halloween movie marathon at a local drive-in theater that my sister took me to when I was only seven. I've been hooked on zombies and zombie movies every since!

    Day of the Dead for the claustrophobia, and the FX.

    While I enjoy and love both Night (for making a huge impact in horror films) and Dawn (for being an even better sequel), I have to choose Day of the Dead. Great gore effects, story, atmosphere, and some likable characters (like Bub).

    Ill go Day. It just doesn't get much better than Rhodes.

    By the way, should I happen to win, I forfeit the prize to Ash who recently got screwed on a book buy. I didn't much care for Survival so I'll let Ash take it. ;)

    EDIT: I see Ash got his consolation DVDs, but I'll still let him have this one should I win for his pain and suffering. :D

    Have to go with Dawn of the Dead. Night is awesome as well, but I love me some zombies in a mall.

    Dawn, because it is his most effective other than Night. I don't want to win this, though, it will end up as a donation to the pawn shop.

    Night of The Living Dead for me. I like my horror film played straight. I love the others but Dawn of the Dead can feel campy at times and Day of the Dead feels almost incomplete.

    The contest is now closed. Thanks everyone for their submissions. While his latter films didn't see much (any) presence here, it's clear that Romero's first three films share a near equal love from horror fans on the site. But that's not what we're all in this thread for...

    The random.org generated winners of a DVD of SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD are:

    Slackjaw83
    BroodingHope
    turdburglar


    Send me a PM with your name and address and these shall be yours when they arrive on my doorstep.

    Thanks all for participating, and look for a new contest soon!
