I don't see it mentioned in t his thread, so I'll nomimate WHITE ZOMBIE with Bela Lugosi.  It's no gut-muncher but a wonderful golden age horror classic!

There ought to be a law against resurrecting a 5 year old thread.

I guess, as of her last birthday, that Susan's age must be catching up with her. TongueOut

Gee, isn't this forum all about our obsession with resurrecting dead things?  Wink

top 4 no question:
Dawn of the Dead
Dawn of the Dead (remake)
Resident Evil (perhaps the best overall)
Shaun of the Dead.

I have to agree with many others on Night of the Creeps, mainly because of its dark humor, excellent effects work and the simple fact that it's the only zombie flick I know of so far that starts with a pudgy alien gunfight sequence. Classic. I can't pick any single "of the Dead" title but Return of the Living Dead and the original Dawn of the Dead are up there.

Shaun of the dead was ok, , but I don't see it as top of the heap. The NOTLD series are great, as are a couple of the Return of the Living Dead movies. I still have to say Braindead (Dead Alive) has to be on the top or VERY near it.

Even though I think NOTLD is the best by far, I couldn't leave it at that.  This genre's just too rich.  I would also nominate these as top-notch:

DAWN OF THE DEAD (almost as good as NIGHT)
WHITE ZOMBIE
DEAD-ALIVE
CEMETARY MAN
RE-ANIMATOR
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (but not the sequels)
Shoot, EVIL DEAD & EVIL DEAD 2, if they count
The zomcom FIDO wasn't in this class, but I just saw it and I'd recommend it to fans who haven't seen it.

Ones I haven't seen but mean to:
28 DAYS LATER (& sequel if I like the first)
CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS
LAND OF THE DEAD, DIARY OF THE DEAD
SHAUN OF THE DEAD
NIGHT OF THE COMET
HORROR EXPRESS

I'll also nominate Night of the Creeps for one simple reason, the best line in any zombie movie...

Sounds like the typical answer, but my vote is for NOTLD.  It is without doubt the best zombie film ever made any way one looks at it - historically, cinematically, etc.  It's tops.

Runners up are its step chidren: Dawn of the Dead ('78) and Return of the Living Dead ('84).
