I've noticed a lot of people here are really fond of zombies. They are scary, they are funny, they moan and they have no hestitation of ripping you apart and eating your intestines! What more would you want?
What is your favourite zombie of all time? It doesn't matter from which movie. Is it the intelligent zombie from day of the dead? The baby from braindead? Tell us!

My favourite is the half head in braindead, which does nothing but getting kicked around and sliding over the flood, trying to look very mean until he meets his sad demise in a blender :(

The fat zombie in the original DAWN OF THE DEAD....

There's a great fan site called THE ZOMBIE FARM where the guy who does the site writes little backstories for all the major zombies in the movie [also for the living characters, but they're not as good.]

The slimy zombie from "Return of the Living Dead" (I think his offical name is the "Tarman").  Man, it was smart as hell... it even built a simple machine to help it get to a victim.

Well, if one is talking about an anonymous group of zombies, then the ones from a film reviewed at this site, "Cemetery Man" with its zombified boy scouts. If one is talking about a zombie identified in the credits, then it is Noble Johnson in the Bob Hope film "The Ghost Breakers."

I'd have to go with Bub from Day of the Dead, but the zombie with two guns from Dawn of the Dead is a close second.

Bub, from Day of the Dead, will always be my favourite zombie. Howard Sherman played the part brilliantly!

But I must say the cute, but worryingly obseesed with self-mutilation, red head lass and love interest for the hero of Return of the Living Dead was foxy, even for a zombie!

Sigh...guess you got to observe the movie to understand where I'm coming from on that one...

That's a tough one. They all have their own charm.

I suppose Jason Voorhees (Part 6 and later) technically counts as a zombie, although those weren't zombie movies in the strictest sense. He's a favourite of mine, although I'd have to say he hit his peak in his first zombie appearance, and never was quite as good afterward.

As for zombie movies, I really get a kick out of Lionel's uncle in Dead Alive, after Mum gets her claws on him. Just his head swaying around on the end of his spine. Makes me laugh.

I've got to go with the poster boy from Fulci's Zombie. The crusty old conquistador with all those worms in his eyeball socket.

I have to go with the Templar Knights from Ossorio's "Blind Dead" series.

I'm going to have to agree with Dirtcreature here. The babe zombie...just something about her.

Dr. Tongue from Day of the Dead (the zombie with his lower jaw ripped off and his tongue dropping out.) Then I'd say Tarman or the flying refrigerator head zombie featured in zombi 3.

That would be Mindy/Melinda Clarke in Return of the Living Dead 3.

Favorite Zombie, Serious: Probably Bub. Second place would probably go to the zombie with the iron in his head from The Video Dead.

Favorite Zombie, Comedy: Seth Green with a bottle sticking out of his head in Idle Hands.

For laughs, the flying head that leaps out of the refrigerator in Zombi 3.
Seriously, I think I have to go with the popular vote and say Bub.

JohnL, that's the one! I couldn't remember her name! I missed out the "3" by accident...need a new keyboard!

Uncle Lionel was cooler before he got zombified...especially how he single handedly took on and won against 50 zombies armed only with a carving knife and a meat cleaver!

Tarman was cool, loved his reaction on, after getting bopped on head with a tin of paint, seeing the rest of the gang! :o)

Another great zombie only had a little part, but had a great line...another from Return of the Living Dead. The one who heard the radio in the cab of the ambulence, and used it for himself!

How could you forget Mindy Clarke? :)

Piece of trivia: A while back I downloaded a scan of her from Maxim or some other magazine, which included a little of the article and she said that she overhead one of her son's friends call her a MILF (Mom I'd Like to F***) and was flattered. How cool is that?

>accident...need a new keyboard!

Nah, you don't need a new keyboard, just clean that one. Usually, it's just a crumb, or little bit of dirt on the bottom of the contact that keeps it from making good contact. Flip it over, take out all the little screws and carefully take it apart, paying attention to how everything is arranged. Carefully blow/shake/brush out any crumbs or other debris that might be on the circuit board/flexi-circuit and use a Q-Tip dipped in Alcohol to clean the bottom of the key contacts. Then carefuly re-assemble everything. I've done this to at least a dozen keyboards of various types and never had a problem. Most are fairly simple to disassemble. Actually, I usually pop off all the keys as well and clean them and the case, so it ends up looking like new. (if you do this, make a diagram of where the keys go!)

As for zombies, I'm surprised that nobody so far has mentioned a zombie with loads of personality and a romantic nature to boot; Bud the Chud! :)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
