Zombies
« on: October 13, 2009, 06:53:51 AM »
I just saw Zombieland. It was good. And I`ve re-watched a couple since then. So, I was thinking it`d be cool to get peoples list of favorite Zombie-flicks.

I`ll start out with a couple classics...

I saw the original Night Of The Living Dead 20 years ago this month.  Zombies remain my favorite movie monster, mainly because I think I've always liked the whole idea of not just one monster, but a city of them.  Later on that attraction turned towards also liking all the metaphors that Romero did with about society in his movies.  Romero and Fulci make the best zombie movies.

Me and my friend started a Zombie Night where every Tuesday we would watch a different zombie movie. We've watched well over 60-70 of them. I've also read lots of zombie books such as The Zombie Survival Guide and Word War Z, as well as all the the Walking Dead comics, so I have self appointed myself as a zombie movie expert, and a zombie purist. Here's my personal top 10:

1. Dawn Of The Dead (There cannot be a better zombie movie made than this. The perfect mix of goodness and b-movie shittyness.)

2. Day Of The Dead (An extension of Dawn, but even more post apocalyptic, which is pretty sweet.)

3. Zombie (sometimes referred to Zombie 2) by Fulci

4. Night Of The Living Dead (Gotta give it up to the original. Pretty bold to have a black lead role who slaps a white woman in 1968.)

5. Return Of The Living Dead (Pretty much the only movies to pull off the kitschy, campy thing on purpose without being shitty.)

6. Burial Ground (The part where Michael bites his mom's nipple off after she tries getting all incest on him is amazing.)

7. Return Of The Living Dead Part 2 (That young dude and the old dude that in both of the Return Of The Living Dead movies are way too fucking funny. We call them the Gruesome Twosome.)

8. Fido (A Canadian comedy made in Kelowna. If you guys haven't gotten the chance to see it, track it down.)

9. Flesh Eater (by Bill Hinzman, the dude who played the first Zombie that appears in Night Of The Living Dead. The guy actually used to make instructional videos for companies, and it shows in the movie. It's unbelievably b-movie, but not on purpose.)

10. Night Of The Living Dead 1990 Remake (Actually a pretty good remake and a lot more enjoyable to watch than lots of other zombie movies.)

It should be noted that anyone voting for Dead Alive on here can get fucked and is not a real Zombie fan because that movie is some Troma-style bullshit. Also 28 Days Later is a great post-apocalyptic movie, but technically not a zombie movie, so you can save that one too.

I have high hopes for the upcoming World War Z. If they follow the book, and Max Brook's zombie properness well, it could easily make it into the top 3 best zombie movies ever.

Also did anyone hear they're making a series out of The Walking Dead on AMC? I have high hopes for that too. http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=22508

my tattoo artist reads Walking Dead. I'll read a few here and there, its really interesting. And the way the characters develop and deteriorate was very well written.

Really nice list Watson and I agree with everything you said.  Speaking of comics and pseudo-zombies.... have either of you read Garth Ennis' "Crossed"?  Holy fuck- it is the gnarliest comic I've read in years.  Basically a disease makes people act on their lowest instincts.  I will say this- in the first episode a dude fucks a WOUND.  And then I think he eats said injured person.

What's been mentioned, Sean of the dead, Resident Evil(s) sort of. I'll watch any zombie flick, shit awful or not. Still haven't gotten my hands on zombie survival guide even though I think I was given a link once. Read World War Z, and if that's going to be a movie eventually of course I'll see it.

i remember being a child and super excited when they announced they would make a resident evil movie.  i went ape shit.  then it came out and david gonzales was in it and it wasn't a good movie.  then it came out twice more and sucked more.

day of the dead remains one of my favorites.  this thread gave me some new titles that i'll check out soon.

And this never got made which is really unfortunate.  Worst Case Scenario.  The music in the second trailer is the shit.

I liked both of those a lot as well.  Apparently they want to do a 28 months later as well.

I'm a zombieholic... Survival Guide was great, and if WWZ is half as good as the book in movie form it could win a legit award.
Romero is the almighty, and Dead Snow (posted above) was decent, not fantastic, but it had some really good moments. The Nazi zombies themselves looked pretty wicked. It was fun.

Awesome that this thread would get started today... any minute now I have a copy of the Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks graphic novel getting sent here to the office.

Zombieland: fucking hilarious and awesome. The opener was like the opener of fully flared, just replace the skating with the undead. A pretty good quality copy of it is on ISOhunt. Fucking Woody rocks in that shit!

28 weeks later/dawn of the dead remake remains to be one of the most intense intros i have ever seen.

I haven't even heard of this.  Gotta go hunt it down.  Is it just a graphic novel version of the last couple chapters of Max Brooks' book?

grim-- we need to set up some quality skate/beer/zombie time down here in the swamp man.

It appears that we are all well versed in the survival guide, and I now have new movies to rent/buy/download. Has anyone heard about that zombie game that's played on college campuses?
