    Zombies have been chewing their way through cinemas since White Zombie was released in 1932 (but zombies didn't get popular until Romero's Night of the Living Dead in 1968)

    so whats your favourite Zombie flick?

    for me, Lucio Fulci's Zombie Flesh Eaters (aka Zombi 2 / Zombie) is the definitive Zombie flick for me

    Seeing it after renting it on VHS (in a very cut version no less), it shook me completely. I managed to get hold of a pre-cert Betamax version during my early teens (long story) and the uncut version completely shocked me to the core whith it's excessive violence and gore (only matche dlater by an uncut viewing of Cannibal Holocaust)

    Since the film was made to cash in on the popularity of Italy's release of Zombi - Dawn of the Dead (the Argento edit of Romero's zombie flick), hence the original title of Zombi 2, i like to think of this film as an unoffical prequel to Dawn of the Dead as i think the ending of Zombie Flesh Eaters leads nicely into the opening of Dawn of the Dead

    28 Days Later. Because it actually made zombies scary by making them fast.
    Slow zombies you could easily deal with = never scary.

    Dawn of the Dead, started my love for zombie movies off
    Night of the living dead remake, Tom Savini did a great job with that.
    Day of the Dead, the best one for the gore
    City of the living dead, a great moment where a women throws up her intestines, lol I nearly threw up myself the first time I saw it.

    If to pick one I would go with Day of the Dead...and yes nostalgia plays a part too, since I was 13 when watching it! :D
    Runners up are Dawn of the Dead (both original and remake), Night of the Creeps and the funny Return of the living dead!

    Day of the Dead is awesome. Peter Jackson's 'Braindead' aka 'Dead Alive' has to be my favourite.

    Hands down Day of the Dead for me! I must of watched this movie easily 20 times or more, and it never bores me.

    Night of the living dead remake was good, also 28 days later!
