I just saw World War Z, and it was decent. A new take on a zombie movie, I suppose. Although, the two that are tied, and it looks like they always will be are, Zombieland, and Shaun of the dead. Both perfect 10s, and instant classics too.

Feel free to check out any of my stories. I have a few poems too.

Night of the Living Dead, the 1968 original that launched the genre. Stark, black and white, and creepy as hell with the gore mostly implied.

A hike in the woods leads to an encounter between the erstwhile bride Julia and her groom Curt. Will love be rekindled?

A Bride's Confession

And the complete story of Curt and Julia can be found by following the links between the stories or see the list on this forum thread:

Zombieland is definitely my favorite, who doesn't like to see Woody Harrelson fighting zombies

I love me some zombies - but not all zombie movies have to be with mindless hordes attacking the living. . . they all go toward the 'post apocalyptic' when they do that: where the people hole up in the last known town and make the final stand . . . because the final stand wouldn't be possible when there were fewer zombies and more people (rolleyes)

The Cabinet of Dr Caligari still takes the cake for me.

Love the classics.

I Walked With a Zombie, which features the "Voodoo-style" zombies would fit here, too. I prefer this type, too, really.

Also worth a look in this vein is The Serpent and the Rainbow, which is (very loosely) based on anthropologist Wade Davis' book about his research into Haitian zombie lore. Probably my favorite Wes Craven movie.

I rather rue the explosion in popularity of the "cannibal zombie" genre as it seems to have completely killed off the "dead raised as slaves zombie" variety.

Zombieland. Easy. Never get tired of that.

Followed by Shaun of the Dead.

Absolutely loathe the 28 ____ Later Movies. Cannot abide stupid characters in movies. Which is probably why I hate horror movies in general.

hehe - Zombieland is great - I do love that one. It has some key 'classic making' concepts: the no-names idea was original to the genre as was the Twinkies thread in it. . . and the rules for survival. . . top rung ideas.

The keys to making a successful story that sticks: giving characters depth by giving them a goal to achieve . . . and their role takes them there.

And of course - it has Woody in a fucking cowboy hat.

Zombieland was great.

The original Night of the Living Dead was as awesome theme for a fraternity party in college. We'd play the movie on all the TVs, dressed & made up like zombies, and have several kegs of beer and smoke some weed. We had a large chocolate and strawberry cake made to look like a human body (kind of) and the rule was you had to eat it with your hands.

Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead. Guh, especially Shaun of the Dead. The scene in the bar (when they were hitting the zombie with pool sticks to Queen) is definitely one of my favorite movie scenes ever.

Also, I have a bit of a soft spot for Resident Evil II. I don't even know WHY.

I really want to see this! It's definitely on my need-to-watch list.



Another interesting zombie movie is "Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead". I mean, guh, it's a musical. :D

I'll admit, watching Warm Bodies was a guilty pleasure.

You really need to watch it. Now!

And Teresa Palmer is cute as heck. And when she turns on the Aussie accent in interviews, oh boy.


I also liked the first Resident Evil. I'll even admit liking Extinction. I have no idea what RE6 was. Yikes.

Shaun of the Dead is the zombie film I enjoyed the most. Zombieland was good too. I'm not sure if 28 Days Later counts as a zombie movie, but I liked that one too. The people with the rage weren't the living dead, just victims of the virus.

Of the Romero movies, I liked Dawn of the Dead best. I didn't care much for any of the remakes, and I saw Night of the Living Dead before I was really old enough to appreciate it.

I love zombie films in general though, and I'm pretty easy to please.
