Yeah, I'm very partial to the original "Dawn", largely because the first couple of times I saw it at midnight showings back during my college days, and it was just a fun atmosphere, particularly when probably half of the audience wasn't sober (although I have to admit that this affection didn't extend to any showings of "Rocky Horror Picture Show." I just never got into that movie, or the goofballs mimicking the film up in front). "Shaun of the Dead" with Simon Pegg is a great flick. I'm not sure where I've seen another movie that so perfectly blended both broad comedy and horror. Obviously, the original "Night of the Living Dead," is a true classic if you can get past the fact that only one of the cast could even be remotely called an actor. I just love the whole "get your cronies together and make a horror movie" aspect of it. The "Dawn" remake doesn't compare with the original, but isn't bad. The original "Day of the Dead" was very disappointing and "Land of the Dead" was rather ordinary. I saw one of the "Return of the Living Dead" films (the one with Kent McCord, and thought it was crap, so I never had any desire to see another. Other than that, I can't say that there are any zombie flicks that come to mind that I liked. I've been curious about the film version of "World War Z" but that seems to be in cinematic limbo.
