  • The Greatest Zombie Flick?

    What do you think is the greatest zombie film ever made... and or the worst?

    Myself - I would have to go with Romeros Dawn and Day, and of course Snyders Dawn rehash as the greatest. Romeros latest, Land of the Dead, was just awful. I spose this is what happens when a writter/producer directs.

      Land of the Dead was more of a polical movie, than a zombie movie. Night of the Living Dead, was the best.

        For some reason 28 Days Later gave me nightmares where none of the other zombie movies have. The funny part, I thought the movie was stupid. Go figure! As for a favorite....Shaun of the Dead! I laughed my tail off!

          BS! Every Romero film was very political. You just weren't a product of the times.

          As for best vs. worst-

          Best: Night of the Living Dead (followed by Day and then Dawn)

          Worst: Too many to choose from. I'll pick House of the Dead.

              OH! Yes, House of the Dead, that was horrible. Land of the Dead was more political. It just din't fit in with Romero's other Zombie movies..

                You clearly missed the point of the other 3 then. Again, I'll assume it's because you're not viewing the movies in the framework of the time they were produced, which is fine. But it's wrong to say Land was particularly more political. All four were extremely political and social.

                    Romero is a genius when it concerns social commentary when applicable to a time-frame and setting. That being said, I thought LotD was just awful. Not because of the political and social sub-text, but simply because it was poorly done in so many ways.

                      I know, that's why I don't actually blame you for missing it. Just wanted to point out the inaccuracy of the claim.

                      Eh, I didn't love it. I didn't hate it. There were things I enjoyed in it, but overall, I agree it missed the mark of a Romero film. When I first came out of the theater I was too excited at having actually seen a new Romero film in theaters after all this time, but eventually the adrenaline wore down and I came to view it a little less favorably.

                        I'm with Biscuit, Shaun of the Dead is brilliant. Worse would probably be (forgot name, same as the video game!!) but it has Milla Jojovich in so I watch it whenever it is on!!!!
