Nothing tops the original 28 day's movie

Zombieland easily. Glad it's winning the poll. 



I've seen Night, the two Dawn and Shaun. But I'd like to quote @gamingsoul with the insanity in Re-animator; and to mention Lucio Fulci's Zombie 2 "flavour" and the radioactive variation of 'Incubo sulla città contaminata (Nightmare city) 
My favourite is 68's Night

Most of the ones on that list are really good with the exception of Zombieland. I didn't like its humor or the female characters who were quite awful to be honest.

Anyway, for me it's 28 Days Later. It's really up there, neck and neck between Dawn of the Dead (original) and Dawn (remake). It just edges them out a bit cause the characters were extremely likable, the soundtrack is damn excellent, it had some trippy scenes, some more meditative scenes as well as a masterfully intense climax.

Also, to any 28 Days Later fan: I'd heavily recommend checking out the comic continuation set between the 28 Days Later movie and the sequel, 28 Weeks Later. It's made by Boom Comics and it's truly brilliant. It captures the feel of the movie completely.

Return of the Living Dead 3, for best zombie movie that isn’t on anyone’s short list for Best Zombie Movie.

I hope this doesn't come across as snarky, but ROTLD 3 was not only the worst zombie movie I've ever seen, but one of the worst films, period. I was kinda rattled by how bad it was. I had to talk to people about it, just to be consoled.

I remember seeing a VHS copy of it on the video store shelf a few months after watching it, picking it up, looking at the front and back of the box, and feeling a sense of wonder as waves of negative energy washed over me while flashes of the movie danced in my mind.
