Linnea Quigley dancing in the graveyard in "The Return of the Living Dead." Such a sexy scene from one of horror's greatest!

The first head explosion in Dawn of the Dead. Surprised me so much, and caught me off guard, and from then on the movie is in full swing. I love watching people see Dawn of the Dead for the first time and seeing their reaction after that.

Dawn of the Dead- When the bikers invade the mall, Ken Foree turns the tables on them, and then it all goes to shit. Awesome and very powerful action and gore scenes throughout this part of the movie.

Day of the Dead (1985) - When Sarah dreams of the arms reaching through the walls to grab her. It's a hallucinatory, foreshadowing moment that manages to shock as well.

the zombies rising from their graves in Zombi 2 with special mention to the simple but genius trick of simulating a rising zombie by throwing some dirt on the camera lens and having a camera man 'rise up'

The little girl killing her mom with the trowel in Night of the Living Dead. I still think it's one of the strongest kill scenes to date. The angles, the weird music, really everything about it is just so unsettling.

Day of the Dead - When Bub tries to let Dr. Logan know he accidentally broke free of his chains only to find the doctor dead on the ground. Howard Sherman (or Sherman Howard as he seems to go by now) is completely covered in makeup and he still sells that scene so well that I nearly cry every time I see it.

"Do you wanna party?" rising from the grave montage from Return of the Living Dead. It's so energetic and fun and punches the movie into high gear for act 2.

Not the best zombie movie by any means, but my favorite scene in a zombie movie is in Nightmare City when the zombies get off the plane and start using their weapons on everyone. Never saw that done before. :)

One of my most memorable scenes is Olga Karlatos eye gouge from Fulci's Zombie.

My favorite scene in a zombie picture doesn't involve blood and guts but rather very fine acting by Duane Jones. It's in the original Night when Ben is regaling catatonic Barbara with his account of a diner overrun by ghouls. Jones is so good in this scene I can always imagine his story about as well as I remember actual scenes from the movie.

"Operation Sweet Death is considered a complete failure" That scene when the fumes leave the center is chilling because the end of the world has just started.

The ending of the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: I was so shocked and depressed. And the collection of still photographs gave me the chills. They still do.

10-16-2013, 03:25 AM
My favorite scene would be the ending of The Beyond right before and including the screen fading into Schweik's painting. Especially the end quote.

Day of the Dead – when Bub is behind the glass in a separate room and they give him things like a razor, toothbrush, phone and gun. It's quite funny and also showed a vestige of humanity remained.

soxfan666
10-16-2013, 03:51 AM
The opening credits through rabid weasels scene in ROTLD. Everything was great for me! You can see Burt's wheels turning as he tries to figure out how to cover the "egg cracking" up and save his business. Oh yeah and split dogs of course!

othervoice1
10-16-2013, 04:08 AM
ROTLD is my favorite zombie movie - so to pick one of my many favorite scenes- well probably the whole opening dialogue between Frank and Freddie leading up to and right after they release the chemical gas. So yes I agree with SoxFan666!

How 'bout the scene in Nightmare City when the zombies burst into the operating room and the surgeon calmly surveys them for a second, before throwing his scalpel ninja-star style into the forehead of the nearest zombie? That surgeon is prepared for anything!

Return of the Living Dead - Linnea Quigley - stripping in graveyard. Shit like that will shape a person.

10-16-2013, 07:29 AM
So many great scenes, but I agree with the ending of Dawn of the Dead. Peter changing his mind and bursting to life as that heroic music kicks in? Always gets a cheer from me. It's like Peter's G.I. Joe moment.

I love the scenes in Nightmare City where the zombies keep going for tits at any chance they get. Makes for a good laugh and eye candy ;)

I love the moment when Liza is driving accross the bridge (the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana) and comes to a stop when blind Emily and her guide dog Dicky appear in the middle of the span.In a film full of bloody deaths and shock scenes it's a very quiet moment yet it is one of the most atmospheric scenes Lucio Fulci ever shot.

evildeadfan123
10-16-2013, 01:48 PM
For me, it is the eye gouging scene from Zombie. It still enjoy it every time I view my Blu-Ray copy of Zombie.

The end jolt from DAY OF THE DEAD 1985 - when Sarah wakes up on the beach you are not really sure if they made it out alive or if she's in her own personal heaven.

10-16-2013, 05:43 PM
My favorite moment in a zombie film is the arrival of the bikers (lead by Savini) in Dawn of the Dead. Just when you thought the film couldn't get any more fun, it does.

vampyr789
10-16-2013, 06:01 PM
This is difficult...

I'd have to say from Dawn of the Dead, when the zombies attack the bikers and rip their stomaches open. Plus the pie fight haha that's always great

My favorite moment in a zombie movie is when the zombies rise from their graves in Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things. Weird music and cool makeup.

I am NOT entering this contest, as I'm a moderator. But I wanna play too, and as a moderator I get to pick two moments (I just made that rule up)

1. Dawn of the Dead: The zombies ripping open Roger's previously bitten leg as he's trying to get into the Scirocco. Ouch!

2. 28 Days Later: tunnel scene

shape22
10-16-2013, 10:00 PM
I have to go with a childhood favorite: Alan's spectacularly unchivalrous act at the end of Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things. It always seemed to be playing on WOR Channel 9 out of New York in the mid 70s. Even as a kid I found it hilarious and disturbing.

streetlight
10-17-2013, 12:53 AM
In the original night of the living dead, when the two are stuck inside the truck, its on fire. Then it shows nobody in the truck when it explodes a couple seconds later. Surely they could have put two dummies inside it! I thought it was funny though

Darga
10-17-2013, 01:45 AM
So many great scenes from which to choose- most of them quite gory- but I'll go with the zombies emerging from their graves in Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things too. It is a truly eerie moment.

X-human
10-17-2013, 02:23 AM
Zombie vs. Shark has to be the most over the top zombie scene of any film. It doesn't matter how much gore or CGI future films have at their disposal there's nothing like a guy wrestling a real live shark underwater.

I've bought the poster and the t-shirt two times over.

gobad2003

Tombs of the Blind Dead, when they first emerge from there graves all slowly, very creepy.:eek:

Zombie 90: Extreme Pestilence

The most amazing zombie film committed to celluloid where every scene filmed is something to behold...

Chomp
10-17-2013, 06:22 AM
"They're coming to get you, Barbara."

Yeah...the opening to NOTLD is probably my favorite as well.

I also always enjoyed the zombie coming out of the TV in The Video Dead as well as ALL the Denim Zombies in FleshEater.

P.S. Did the thread title remind anybody of Altered Beast, or am I the only one? LuLz.

10-17-2013, 04:39 PM
I think it has to be that neck bite early in Dawn of the Dead when the swat team is sweeping the apartment building--IT was just so new at that point to see that level of graphicness and it really set the tone for the insanity to come....

Hellbilly

Dance of the Dead (2008)

The prom dance surrounded by Zombies and a cover version of Pat Benetar's "Shadows of the Night" playing, ballad version. Doesn't get cooler than that.

Zillamon51
10-18-2013, 05:16 AM
The opening scene & credits of Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead remake. A few ominous clues are sprinkled in the opening scene, then the world goes to shit overnight. Cue opening credits with apocalyptic montage and Cash on the soundtrack. The rest of the movie may not have quite measured up, but that opening is as good as anything zombie-related ever put on screen.

maybrick
10-18-2013, 05:26 AM
I always think about the scene where we are introduced to the first zombie by the river bank in Let Sleeping Corpses Lie. I'm not sure why I do, but I think that geographically it isn't all that different to areas in New Hampshire that I grew up in.

SpaceAce
10-18-2013, 02:29 PM
Have not seen too many zombie movies, but I actually liked the scene in the Dawn of the dead remake at the beginning where that girl creeps in to her parents room. Nice way to start the movie and creeped out my friends and I.

Rft183
10-18-2013, 08:56 PM
I love the goofy scene from Dead Alive where the Rat Monkey eats the other monkey at the zoo. I laugh out loud every time I see it!

Without a doubt Return of the Living Dead's graveyard dance.

10-19-2013, 04:30 AM
I say for me any how, it's the beginning of Dawn Of The Dead when the husband has been bitten by the kid and the wife is hiding in the bathroom and he rams his head thru the door to get her...reminds me of The Shining and Jack Nicholson!! That hubby just scared the Hell outta me and his wife climbs out the window to escape, then he is still after after she gets in the car! Man!! I woulda grabbed my 22 also with the car keys tho if I was her :fire:

Werewolf Vixen
10-19-2013, 06:55 AM
I was going to say the opening credits and in fact, the entire pre-credit sequence as well of Dawn of the Dead(2004). But since someone beat me to it. Let's see if I can think of something not mentioned yet.

Night of the Creeps. The scene with the ax murderer rising from the dead, below the old ladies house, as she hears pounding on the floor, then suddenly the zombie bursts through the floor, ax in hand and it's too late for the lady. It's a really creepy sequence.

17thJuggalo
10-19-2013, 03:03 PM
Easily the scene where Tony Buba gets killed on the blood pressure machine in Dawn of the Dead.

Mattapooh
10-19-2013, 03:04 PM
The apartment scene in the original "Dawn of the Dead". It was the first zombie movie I'd ever seen and when that first zombie takes the chunk out of the chick's shoulder/trap area, it seemed so frigging real! That kicked off the sense of "uh oh, this is heavy stuff" that kept up for the rest of the movie.

v2man
10-19-2013, 07:28 PM
The worm eye zombie rising from the grave in Fulci's Zombie.

mrlabrad
10-20-2013, 04:57 AM
It definitely has to be Burial Ground with the scene of the incestous zombie son biting off the breast of her mother. It's video nasty and trashy to the extreme.

The original helicopter from Dawn of the Dead (1978) showing up in the opening pre credit sequence in Dawn of the Dead (2004) in that wide highway shot... also in that same shot, Ben's story about the diner/gas station explosion happens as well... so awesome!

Congrats, spawningblue. Great to see someone who has been on here as long as I have that actually wins something. I might have to see what this Detention of the Dead is about. I myself already own Zombie & House By The Cemetery on Blu-Ray already, and I love Zombie movies, or as my brother and husband say to me "Your stupid horror movies." My husband isn't a big fan of horror films, and my brother on the other hand, grew up watching horror films with our Mom, but he's more a casual fan, and I'm just a fanatic, a huge fan of even extremely low-budget movies.
