    Gay of the Dead has gotta be the best, the gay porn zombie spoof that probably exists. Romero’s best – Dawn of the Dead. Because the blood pressure monitor, that’s why.

  2. Jillian says:

    Dawn of the Dead is my fave because thae zombies look sooo creepy and the movie is gory and awesome!

  3. Jeff says:

    Dawn Of The Dead because of Goblin’s soundtrack.

  4. Dwayne says:

    The original Dawn of the Dead is my favorite zombie flim of all time. The start of the film is pain and simply how a zombie outbreak would happen. By the end of the film you’ve felt a whole spectrum of emotions. And all this from a Zombie Horror film. Thumbs up all the way. The other films are also amazing, but this is the one for me.

  5. Night of the Living Dead will always be my favourite for being as creepy today as it was when I saw it for the first time, age 9.

  6. Sandra Gallant says:

    Dawn of the Dead… Zombies were the scaryist in that film

  7. Andrea Arwen Hodgins says:

    Ah! To meet Romero would be a DREAM! Fav Film: Dawn of the Dead. SCARES THE HELL outta me! No way to fight back, even a newborn becomes a zombie and the END=horrific(ally good).

    Night of the living dead is my fav movie because it really sets off your imagination and sparks hours of “what would you do” conversations with friends. It was also my introduction to zombies and I haven’t look back.

  9. Peter Smith says:

    For me “Dawn of the Dead” is the Godfather 2 of zombie films. I found the film unsettling when I was 7 and 23 years later… I still feel the same. My Dad couldn’t wait until I was a teenager to show it to me.

  10. Richard Anderson says:

    I would love to say “Night of Living Dead” ’cause it is still so freaking scary. Or “Day of the Dead” just to be original. But like many others, my vote goes to “Dawn of the Dead”, if only for the early scene where the zombie chomps into that lady’s shoulder. When I first saw that, it was the goriest thing I had ever watched. I still cringe a little, knowing it’s coming.

  11. Jenny says:

    Day of the Dead is my favourite of the three. Why? It showed that a zombie — Bub — could remember pieces of his former human life. It showed there was social progress made between he and Dr. Logan. And when Cpt. Rhodes kills Logan, well, that body-ripping scene near the end is retribution well-deserved.

  12. Colin says:

    Night Of The Living Dead…because it was the best example of how things can fall apart if shacked up with people you shouldn’t trust (I’m looking at you Mr. Cooper, you wife was right about you) and the surprising bleak ending.

  13. Todd Last says:

    Hello, even though I love all 3 of the Zombie movies, my favourite has always been and shall always be Day Of The Dead. Growing up loving horror movies, especially Geaorge A Romero movies, I always thought that Day Of The Dead was the best of the 3. Lots of people growing up, thought Day Of The Dead was the weaker of the 3, just put together really quick with no meaning behind it, just to finish off the trilogy.

    I always loved it the best because I always thought what is more scarier than being underground in a bunker with a bunch of military people and zombies. never knowing who is going to lose it first and just start killing everything. The atmosphere and simply going stir crazy, not knowing what is going to happen next.


  14. Don Crowther says:

    The best zombie film hands down is Dawn of the Dead. No question. Its got everything. It changed everything and made the genre what it is. Most zombie movies are just trying to capture a bit of the magic that still oozes for this masterworks shambling corpse.

  15. Todd says:

    Hello, As a lifelong horror movie fan in my opinion of the 3 George A Romero zombie trilogy, my favourite has always been The Day Of The Dead.

    Day Of The Dead, when I was gowing up, was always considered the weakest of the 3. But to me what could be scarier than being in an underground bunker with military and zombies. The atmosphere and claustrophobia that must be running rampant down there must be stiffeling. Going stir crazy must be down there and rying not to lose it and start killing; now that is why Day Of The Dead is my favourite of the trilogy.

    Night of the Living Dead. My name is Barbara.

  17. Evan says:

    Night of the Living Dead. It was one of the first movies I remember watching with my dad. He explained the importance of it to me. One of my fondest memories.
