OK, which of the many shambling, decaying, animated corpse movies is your favorite? My nomination is:

Shaun of the Dead

I'll add Zombieland to the list.

Fido.

While not a fan of the genre I do like "Shaun…" and "Zombieland" for the different cultural views.

Night of the Living Dead. It scared the crap out of me as a little kid.

Heh. Did the same to me,at age 21. Still the most effective "modern" type zombie movie.

For the traditional voodoo type, "I Walked With a Zombie" (1943).

Night of the Living Dead (original; still the scariest movie ever made!)
Dawn of the Dead (original)
Dawn of the Dead (remake they're both very good!)
Undead (2003)

For side reading, here is Roger Ebert's 1968 review of Night of the Living Dead, (or rather his audience review):

miniMo--thanks for the link--interesting reading,especially for the lack of an "out" for the kids. OT,but reminds me of an interview with William Cameron Menzies about this film:

When asked about the visible zippers on the backs of the minion suits,he said he did it deliberately, to give scared kids an "it's only a movie" escape hatch. Considering the whole film was targeted directly at a child's deepest fears,a wise move.

The original "Night of the Living Dead".

willthepiper23 Oct 2017 2:06 p.m. PST

The first zombie movie I saw in a movie theatre (first run) was "Return of the Living Dead".

Great quotes:
"send more paramedics"
"send more cops"

Plus, Linnea Quigley – ahem.

Pretty hard to make one better than Romero's original trilogy.

My fave has to be the long (director's?) cut of Dawn of the Dead.
