With Halloween and the premiere of "The Walking Dead" fast approaching, please name some of your favorite zombie movies.
Here are some of mine:
"White Zombie" starring Bela Lugosi
"Bride of Frankenstein"
"Dawn of the Dead" original and remake.
"Diary of the Dead," "Survival of the Dead," pretty much any Romero zombie flick really.
"Cemetary Man"
"Shaun of the Dead"

Night of the Living Dead - original.

Dawn of the Dead - original.

I prefer the slow moving dead.

"28 Days Later." The first zombie movie that actually made me anxious. I thought, "wait a minute, zombies don't run! And what's with that screechy thing?" Plus, the running seemed all disjointed and weird. It was sweet. When I watch it now it's not as freaky as the first time, but back then...
And how can I forget "Army of Darkness."

Carnival of Souls is so horrendously bad, it's good. Or maybe it's just really bad.

Besides the origional night of the living dead, dawn of the dead - day of the dead. I also liked the three Resident evil movies. And the classic movie that started it all "I am Legend" Vincent Price.

Cheers!

Definitely cool cult horror!

I'm not familiar with this. Is this the original of the remake that Will Smith was in??

For a modern day zombie movie, I thought "Zombieland" was a blast! "Fido" was pretty funny, too.

It's actually called "The Last Man on Earth" (with Vincent Price) but it was inspired by the Richard Matheson novel (actually more of a novella as I recall) I am Legend:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058700/

"The Omega Man" (with Charlton Heston) was also inspired by Richard Matheson's book:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067525/

I've seen both movies, and neither one is quite like the novel.

The Vincent Price movie was actually called "The Last Man on Earth."
They had to change the name after casting Price because Richard Matheson, author of the book, thought he was wrong for the part and no longer wished to be associated with the project. It has since become a cult classic.

Wasn't there also a Twilight Zone episode on the same theme?

Outstanding recent comedy/horror/zombie-ish movie: Slither.

I had a good time with Zombieland, also.

In addition to most of those previously mentioned, gotta add "Zombie" with its classic tagline: "We Are Going to Eat You."

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

From the web, "Apart from Rod Serling, screenwriter Richard Matheson wrote more teleplays for the cult classic The Twilight Zone than any other writer."

So in response to your question, it wouldn't surprise me one bit. Although, having written that, I can't find anything obvious about such an episode on the web.

It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I agree with Jaz "the night of the living dead", and "dawn of the dead" are two disgusting movies.

"Fido" is one of the funnier ones too.
Gonna' Netflix this "Undead or Alive" of which you speak.
Oh yeah, "Homecoming" from the Masters of Horror collection is probably my favorite politically themed movie. If you like zombies and the Daily Show, you'll love Homecoming.

Yeah, that was a good one. The wiggling body parts in the trash bag and the medical supply half dogs... ha-ha!! I always thought the star, Clu Gulager had a great name!

A couple others, a bit more obscure than some...

"Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things" - Love the ending! (was also released as "Revenge of the Living Dead")

"Re-animator" - There's a scene with a head and a girl on a table that's pretty creepy.

I can't believe I forgot my absolute favorite... "Plague of the Zombies" - Hammer Films 1966. I saw it when I was 11 or 12 and was big time hooked! Typical boring-ass British film except when the scary moments come... and they are worth the wait!
