So.... if zombies still rot, what's stopping them decomposing into a skeleton and having their super-brain oozing out of their skull?

When we die tons of micro-organisms "feed" upon the remains of our body, but when a human is infected with Solanum most micro-organisms are repelled by the virus. A few mico-organisms continue feeding on the body and eventually the zombie does decay, it just takes a while. A looooong while. Usually three to five years.

No one's sure why so many micro-organisms are repelled by Solanum but many theorize that infected skin poisons certain unicellular organisms and that over the years they've developed an instinct that keeps them away from infected remains.

Dawn of the Dead (1979) was recently rereleased on DVD.  It is great that it comes out a week before the remake comes out.

I just saw Dawn of the Dead, the remake and it was pretty good for a remake.

I agree.  I just saw it the other day with a group of friends and one of the things we were worried about was if they were going to "Hollywood" it up.  From the trailer, we imagined that it would have Ving Rhames shooting zombies in slow motion to DMX.   Thankfully it was not like that at all and they did a very good job with it.  I especially like how they did the ending. (I won't spoil it for anyone, but if you do see it, sit through the credits to see the true ending).

The movie is better than most remakes of classic movies.  It is much better than the remake of Night of the Living Dead.  Rumors are flying that they may remake Day of the Dead.  If that happens, then George Romero may be allowed to film his fourth dead film, Dead Rekoning.

I don't really consider Jaws a horror film as such more of a thriller.
I don't particularly like re-makes, especially when it is a film I enjoyed but I will give the Dawn of the Dead remake the benefit of the doubt until I see it.

Well a lot of people won't describe "Sleepy Hollow" as zombie movie but for me it's the funniest, most thrilling zombie movie I've ever seen. Johnny Depp plays one of his best roles and Christina Ricci is gorgeous.

What about Army of Darkness? Thinking about it it's not a 'zombie' movie.

I'm the kind of lady who'll have nightmares for weeks after watching a zombie movie, that's why I only watch piss-take ones.

Shaun of the Dead is a wonderful film. Incredibly British, and fans of Spaced will wet themselves both orgasmically and prematurely toiletarily. However, it cannot be King of the zombie movies, as it is a comedy/spoof, thus is not a member of the genre Zombie noir.

My vote shall go the way of most others, and 'big up' the original Dawn of the Dead. Though, I wish to make clear that i've loved that film for years, not merely as a result of the remake. Yes.

Oh, my vote would go to Evil Dead, but the walking corpses in that film ain't zombies. Sorry. Plus, I can't watch any of the three without reliving an embarrassing masturbation incident involving Bruce Campbell. That's all i'm saying.

I've alway hated the Evil Dead sequels. Dont get me wrong, their funny at times - but I must be the only one who found Bruce annoying. He's a great actor, but I just liked him in the original Evil Dead. Meh.

The only recent-produced Zombie film that caught my attention was '28 Days Later', though it was pretty much a let down after the big hype leading up to it. Oh well; it was a good film, espicially the whole deserted city scenes - that was great.

28 Days Later was good but they should have stuck with the alternative ending on the DVD. It seemed more real that way although the whole soldier thing got a bit out of hand as far as the story was concerned.

I still rate the orginal 'Night of the Living Dead' as possibly the best zombie movie so far.
So for me its a bloody hard choice between the Dawn of the Dead and the Night of the Living Dead but its one of the two.

The Alternate ending? As with many things, this issue was best summed up by PEEL's certified two-years running comedy master:

Which ending did you like the best? Maybe I'm crazy, but ending #36 was really disappointing. They should have gone with either #35 or #37 as the real ending.

Genius.

Why is Braindead not on the list? In my opinion it is the funniest zombie movie ever...

Evil Dead II is also one of the best zombie movies out there (much better than the first one!).

There are hundreds upon hundreds of Zombie films that havent been listed here. Dont think we're excluding 'Braindead'.

Also, Evil Dead 2 was crap compared to the original - you know that, I know that, we all know that. Case closed.

NO! Evil Dead II is not crap. Evil Dead II is GREAT!

Yes, there are hundreds of zombie movies out there, which is why only the best should be on the list. What I was saying was that Braindead is one of the best. And that Evil Dead II is much better than the first.

I don't know that, and as such, I demand you re-open the case!  I think ED2 is the best of the series.

I'm pretty sure Evil Dead 2 was just a remake of the first one with extra bits thrown in to make it more comical and to leave the end open for a sequel.

Or thats how I felt when I saw it.

Ohhhh. Well, you should have said so. My ripe old age is affecting my memory brains nowadays, either that or I can't read minds.

Guitar Wolf: Wild Zero, I still got that on VHS from when it was on SBS about a year ago. Thats the movie that introduced me to Guitar Wolf - great band, great band.

You gotta get the DVD.  One of the extras is a drinking game.  Turn it on and a little beer mug icon appears in the corner of the screen when you have to drink.  The situations when you drink are:

Someone drinks
Someone combs their hair
Someone says "rock & roll"
Something explodes
Flame shoots out of something
A zombie's head gets popped

...and maybe some others.  You do about five beers in the hour and a half or so.

Yeah, I've got to get the DVD - the VHS is running thin because its been used to tape other stuff before it, so the sound is alittle distorted. I'll proberly have to order it though. Aw.

3. (Watch the movie) The zombies in ROTLD couldn't be reasoned. They could talk, but that didn't stop them from wanting to eat brains. In Dawn of the Dead it was said that those zombies couldn't because they only want flesh.  To some it up, typical Zombies can't stop their need to feed.  Unless you count that female zombie in Return of the living dead 3, but she ultimately helped herself to some brains.
4.Zombies come in different forms. In Romero's films were they were Flesh-eatera.  In Return of the Living Dead, and its sequels they were brain-eaters meaning they only ate the brain.  28 Later Days later we have new type of zombies that crave blood because they need fresh blood and they crave the same way past zombies craved brain and flesh
5. You may want to call them infected instead of zombies, because they aren't dead, but they behave in a manner like zombies in that they'll kill anything that isn't one of them.  So you don't have to call them zombies, but they behave like zombies. 

who is anyone to say what a zombie is? someones take on what a vampire does or looks like may be different to another. interview with a vampire, blade and van helsink (large heap of shit btw) were all different. just because my favourite take on it was interview with the vampire doesnt mean the others are wrong.

edit; argh! sorry for double post.   cry   eek

Zombies are human bodies returned from the dead, and possessed by evil spirits. I think it's pretty safe to say that that describes a zomibie does it not?

No, it doesn't. There are no documented "possessed" zombies, unless you want to include voodoo zombies. The real world zombies are infected with a virus called Solanum, and nothing more.
