With it being the month of October and me being the huge zombie aficionado that I am, I thought I'd start a poll for Best Zombie Movie.
I'd say 28 Days Later, looked upon by many as the one that revolutionized the zombie genre. Not only is it arguably the best zombie movie ever made, it's one of the best modern horror movies ever made. Everything from the cinematography, characters, tension, direction, story is nailed to a T. It deserves its title as the quintessential zombie film IMO. It's also the first zombie film to introduce the popular fast zombies.
Can't go wrong with George A. Romero's zombie films. Night of The Living Dead was as groundbreaking as it was disturbing, and may have contributed to the formation of the MPAA rating system thanks to it's graphic death scenes (Though you couldn't tell the zombie actors were just snacking on ham and chocolate syrup as the film was shot in black and white).
Romero even pitched a Resident Evil movie to Capcom in the 90s, yet they rejected it in favor of Paul W S Anderson's Resident Evil. -_-
I too miss the "explicit violence and gore" warnings.
Haven't seen Zombieland or 28 Days Later, but I have a feeling I should.
