I was excited about hearing that they were following up 28 Days with 28 Weeks Later.  However, I think I kind of agree with MrBlonde, after seeing the trailer, I'm pretty skeptical about how the movie will turn out.  I think I'll keep my hopes low from until it comes out and then watch it on the side - it might be semi-enjoyable.

Didn't all the "infected" starve to death? How can there be more?

The infection can be transmitted if their blood or saliva gets into your body and it only takes a few seconds for the infection to hit.  Even if they are all starved to death, the danger is that their let over blood can get into you. 

I guess someone didn't do their job in disposing the bodies properly.

TNT is airing Resident Evil: Apocalypse.  This Friday, Resident Evil: Extinction plays.  I'm disappointed that the Jill Valentine character won't be in this movie since the actress playing her couldn't meet the production schedule, though the movie will feature more characters from the games.

28 Weeks Later was somewhat of a disappointment, but it had its moments.  It seems the movie was trying to say that US military makes things worse when they help out another country's problem.

Also George A. Romero will be directing a new zombie movie, DIARY OF THE DEAD.  My understanding it's a zombie movie only done as like the Blair Witch Project.  Film students with their cameras capture the madness of zombies attacking.  I also think Romero said that this will be set on the same night as NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD was remade in a 3D and I saw a theater production of NOTLD and it was staged very well.

I just saw Diary of the Dead on DVD and it was awesome.  George A. Romero continues to prove to be not only a good horror director, but good director period.  He has likable characters, interesting storyline and good film execution.  This film is for all the youtubers and webshow people.

I also bought another edition of the original Night of the Living Dead.  This is the 3rd DVD of that film and I bought it from the same store.  The first one I bought had just the movie some crappy trivia game costing only $6.  Years later I bought the Mike Judge commentary version featuring both black and white and in color.  This edition will probably be the last unless I ever find that edition with supposly new scenes shot for this movie.

This one is presented in widescreen, and has George Romero giving commentary.  I've been waiting for his commentary of the film as I watch it.  There have been so many editions of this movie on DVD because the film is in public domain and anybody can sell it on DVD, but it's great that Romero was finally involved with one the editions. This DVD also features the last interview of Duane Jones (played Ben) before he passed away.

I've never been able to muster any terror at the prospect of a shambling supernatural monster that is likely to fall apart before it reaches me.

I can remember seeing the original "Night of the Living Dead" about 2 years after it first came out.  Growing up in a community that was a little sheltered, I was not ready for what this film presented.  I had horrific nightmares for days after I saw it, and I still consider it to be one of the scariest movies I've seen.  A lot of the horror films since then could learn a lot from this film's minimalistic approach.

I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Pegg.

There is only one ture zombie franchise, and that belongs to Romero.

As huge a Bruce Campbell fan as I am, the Evil Dead series is not, nor has it ever been, zombie films.


Anyone that enjoys the Romero franchise, however, should check out Zombie (or Zombie 2, as it is the same film, just renamed, as Zombie was banned in the US for a while).

I can honestly say that the black and white version is waaay scarier than the colourised version, for no reason I can accurately identify.

Shaun of the Dead takes the cake for me,
I watched the orignal Dawn of the Dead recently and It wasn't really THAT amazing, I guess it would have been for it's time as nothing can shock me these days.
Given the chance, I could probably make a better movie.

y'know, there are other measures for how good a movie is besides "How much does it shock me?" Keep thinking like that and eventually every movie will be a snuff film.

I saw Diary Of The Dead when I was in Queensland earlier this year and it was probably the first zombie movie I've seen as I'm not really into zombie movies for pretty much this exact reason:
I've never been able to muster any terror at the prospect of a shambling supernatural monster that is likely to fall apart before it reaches me.

But I though it was really good. The characters were good (especially the professor guy) and the plot was actually half decent and kept me interested throughout the entire movie.

Would be good if one could vote though tongue


George A Romero's fllms
The first 3 were great, then once Land of the Dead came along it went way downhill...

Shaun of the Dead
Great homage to Zombie movies, great jokes, still one of the best if not the best, in recent years.

Zombieland
Sucked, running Zombies, BLAH!

Return of the Living Dead (1984)
Too long since I've seen it...

Resident Evil movies
Not Zombie movies!

28 Days Later
Not a Zombie movie!

Evil Dead Trilogy
Not Zombie movies!

Zombi 2
Too long since I've seen it

Re: Zombieland, the "rules" were awesome... and it had Bill Murray. That's gotta make up for the unslow undead.

Re: DotD04, I fucking loved it. Great homage to the original, plus a brilliant opening sequence, nice dark ending (screw happy endings), and some excellent black and squick humour. All in all, very enjoyable.

I actually agree with tnuk.

Not sure why Booze cares about running zombies in Zombieland...it was a comedy. I can understand why he wouldn't like them in the Dawn Of The Dead remake though.

Also who cares if 28 Days Later isn't a zombie movie...it's fucking brilliant.

It might be good, but it shouldn't be in a poll for zombie movies... or else why not add something other completely random?

And comedy or not, either do it right or not at all.

Just wanted to update the poll, if the powers that be can close the other thread http://www.peelified.com/index.php?topic=8067.msg2147483647#end that would be cool.  

I just wanted to create a new poll since The Walking Dead is hopefully bringing the zombie trend into the mainstream.

I've got to go with the original zombie movie I saw, George Romero's classic 1968 Dawn of The Dead.  Made for, like, $40,000 and a six pack of beer, it's still the one that freaks me out the most.  All the other zombie films & low cost scare films that came after it owe George Romero a debt of gratitude.

I think you mean Night of the Living Dead, if you are talking about the 1968 classic, Dawn was like an epic onto its own.  You're right about Night.  It created the genre and introduce the idea of zombies eating flesh, which are often referred to Romero zombies.

I know Zombies existed before NotLD, i e White Zombie.  NotLD is known for being the first zombie movie to have zombies that eat flesh.
