title explains it. Just tell me 2 or 3 really good ones, thanks.

....Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Dead Alive (Braindead).

Special mention goes to Shockwave, which starred Peter Cushing.  It really isn't that great, but the ending tickles me for some reason.

Also, there's Night of the Creeps, which every now and again I like.  If I can get a copy with the original ending, I'd be a bit happier.

One qualifier: I haven't seen every zombie movie made.  Two other potentially good zombie  movies are "Day of the Dead" and "I Walked with a Zombie."

hmmm, that's easy, Dead Alive.
what other movie includes bodily dismemberment by a lawn mower, a likable(yet slighty dorky) hero, and a priest doing kung fu. none, that's how many!

Braindead, NOTLD Trilogy, Return Of The Living Dead Trilogy, Evil Dead Trilogy

hmmm, soon to be: Peter Jacksons World War 1 Zombie Film :)

Dead Alive is definitely a hoot, Dawn of the Dead has a nice post-apocalyptic flavour to it, and Return of the Living Dead has tongue-in-cheek humour and a certain nostalgic appeal. Those would be my three picks.

I'm not a big zombie expert or "afficionado" per se, but the ones that have scared me the most in my 47 years have been the original "Night of the Living Dead" and "The Last Man on Earth" with Vincent Price.  Saw those both at drive-ins as a kid and had to hide in the back seat of the car.  =:0

Top pick: Evil Dead 2. Runners-up: Night of the Living Dead (original), Return of the Living Dead (first one only), and Zombie just for the perfect puke factor.

One of my favorites would have to be Biozombie.

My favorite is Day of the Dead, in fact Romero's entire trilogy is a smart, consistent vision.

Tom Savini's disavowed remaked is an underrated little thriller, it's not classic, but  smartly written and solidly made nonetheless.

I'll second the Shock Waves nomination and Fulci's Zombie is dumb fun (how could you not love a movie were a zombie attacks a SHARK!)

Chadzilla's too modest to promote himself (I'm not), but don't miss his reviews of DAY OF THE DEAD and ZOMBIE over at Scifilm.

I like all the ones mentioned, and also Horror Express (with Telly Savalas, Cushing, and Lee) and my all-time favorite film of any genre, Cemetery Man.

I'd have to go with Bio Zombie, it's sort of a cross between Clerks and Dawn of the Dead with a bit of House of the Dead (VG) thrown in.
« Reply #13 on: January 08, 2002, 04:47:55 PM »

...Horror Express!  Gah!  That deserves more of a place on my list than "Shock Wave!"  (Although, is it really a zombie movie if the zombies only appear at the end?)

Missing "Cemetery Man" isn't as bad.  I liked the film, but I wouldn't have called it one of the best.

I also would like to add "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things", which, again, I like as much for the ending as anything else, and the zombie "Night Life” with Scott Grimes and Gomez Addams (or John Astin, whichever, whatever).  NL has a very special place in my heart for whatever reasons, and, with "John Carpenter's The Thing,” is one of the few films I can watch over and over and over again.

Speaking of John Carpenter, does "The Fog" count a zombie movie or a ghost story or both?

Children of the Living dead - It does have Tom Savini, but thats the only good thing about it.

Zombie 3 (aka nights of terror) - This is horrible, saying that I've only seen the uk release (cut down to 60 mins). Although the weird kid in it is funny "Mama, this cloth smells of death"
